It is vitally important that you ensure the company who conducts work on your behalf, whether that be as a direct contractor or third party contractor is properly licensed and carry the necessary insurances to protect your business.
This can be a very time consuming exercise. Today there are a number of different compliance companies who will conduct these checks for you on your behalf. One of these companies is called CM3. Many of the larger national and international companies in Australia require their contractors and subcontractors to be CM3 certified. The CM3 process is very comprehensive and covers areas such as;
- Correct licensing
- Ensure that the licence remains valid
- Ensuring that the correct insurances are held and remain valid
- Ensuring that the company has the proper policies and procedures
- Ensuring that the company has a comprehensive Safety Management Plan and in depth SWMS
