Contractor – Sustainability Management System Introduction

At Sheppard Earthmoving, we are committed to providing and maintaining a safe work environment for everyone.

We are also required by law to take all necessary actions to ensure, so far as is reasonably practicable, the health and safety of all employees, contractors and visitors. Therefore, before contractors do any work with Sheppard Earthmoving they must be able to demonstrate that they have the necessary processes, qualifications, competencies and insurances to provide the services we are engaging them to undertake, in a safe and environmentally responsible way and in accordance with legislative requirements.

We have developed this online Contractor – Sustainability Management System (C-SMS) to assist us in ensuring that only qualified and compliant contractors work on Sheppard Earthmoving job sites and that our contractors are provided with necessary information about Sheppard Earthmoving’s Sustainability Management System, including quality, environmental, health and safety (QEHS) responsibilities and requirements.

All contractors working with Sheppard Earthmoving are expected to comply with our policies, procedures and standards and to conduct their business dealings in an ethical manner. This includes standards for personal behaviour, security, privacy, equal opportunity, no harassment and bullying, theft, fraud and removal of property.

All site contractor employees (including sub-contractors) who are engaged by Sheppard Earthmoving are required to register as a new contractor via the Sheppard Earthmoving’s Contractor – Sustainability Management System (C-SMS). It is mandatory that all approved contractors read and understand the online induction before starting work. Note: It is the responsibility of the contractor company/principal contractor to ensure that all of their employees and/or subcontractors that will be working at a Sheppard Earthmoving job site have completed our online induction prior to commencing work and to manage to inductees as a contracting company.

The online induction is valid for a 12 month period, after which time re-induction is mandatory. A reminder email will be generated 30 days prior to expiry.
