Leading construction and mining workplace safety provider, Roofsafe Industrial Safety (RIS)
offers to indemnify operators against non-compliance prosecution with their new Syncron solution. RIS is a major Australian height and confined space workplace safety provider.
RIS has introduced a new ‘one stop shop’ construction and mining workplace safety compliance audit service, which offers to indemnify individual construction companies and mine operators against statutory costs associated with prosecution for non-compliance irregularities arising out of its service offering.
According to Managing Director Michael Bermejo, the RIS process will act in partnership with employers to ensure their legal responsibilities are appropriately maintained and discharged.
Mr Bermejo explains that RIS offers to indemnify construction companies and mine operators against the recently introduced workplace safety risks and regulations associated with the employment of workers in difficult and often dangerous projects and environments. The indemnity covers statutory costs or penalties imposed for the non-compliance of a structure or product certified by RIS.
Easy to implement, the Syncron programme provides operators with the ultimate peace of mind.
The Syncron programme, when deployed in its entirety, saves operators both time and money by using cost-effective products and technologies, integrating services, maximising productivity and substantially reducing the financial exposure to plant operation. In addition, implementation of RIS’ ‘best practice’ co-ordination of processes reduces downtime, while the ongoing maintenance of a safer working environment can help extend plant and equipment life with positive flow on impact to the bottom line.
RIS expertise and reputation is reflected in their blue chip client list, which includes Gold Coast Skypoint Observation Deck and Climb Project – Q1 SuperTower, Melbourne Cricket Ground, Adelaide International Airport, Railcorp, BMA/BHPB, Brookfield Multiplex, NSW Department of Commerce (TAFE), Integral Energy, Defence Maintenance Management, Transfield, Stockland Group, Macquarie Countrywide, Woolworths, Australian Submarine Corporation, Australand and Transocean.
According to Mr Bermejo, Syncron allows operators to have access to a fully independent expert overview evaluation of their workplace safety, followed by the integrated provision of safety products, training and ongoing management. He describes Syncron as a new and better way to ensure that all legal and moral responsibilities for workplace safety are properly met to the letter of the law.
An experienced Syncron team will work with the on-site foreman or safety officer as a respected partner, listening to their advice and adding their own knowledge and expertise to theirs. Syncron makes complex compliance requirements simpler, compiling and maintaining all appropriate records and certifications to facilitate audits by statutory authorities and to ensure that the plant is always recognised as complying with all relevant regulations.
Syncron guarantees compliance peace of mind, which is why RIS is able to offer indemnity with total confidence.
RIS designs, manufactures and distributes an extensive range of tested and standards compliant range of products including permanent anchor points, horizontal and vertical fall protection systems, aluminium and fibreglass ladders and walkway systems, fall arrest retractable blocks (inertia reels), tripods and winches for confined space, as well as its own range of Standards approved personal protective equipment (PPE).
