Orica Kooragang Island is committed to ensuring that all operations are conducted in accordance with our safety, health and risk management policies.
We strive to ensure our facility operates to the highest standard to protect the health and safety of workers, the community and the environment, supported by our safety, health and environmental management system.
Orica Kooragang Island is classified as a major hazard facility (MHF) because the facility has more than the threshold quantity of specific hazardous materials. An MHF is required to demonstrate to SafeWork NSW how it operates with an acceptable level of risk to people and the environment.
To underscore and strengthen these safety, health and risk management commitments, contractors working for Orica Kooragang Island must register and maintain their compliance in an online Workforce Management System.
The system is managed on our behalf by Pegasus, workforce management software and safety experts.
HOW DOES THE SYSTEM WORK?
Kooragang Island contractors will register both their business and workers in the Orica Workforce Management System.
The process is relatively simple and is all completed in an online portal. We divide it into two stages to make it as seamless as possible: 1. business registration, and 2. worker registration. The entire process is detailed on the How to Register page, and we’ve outlined it below for you:
Registering your business
Beginning in the Company Pre-Qualification portal of the Orica Workforce Management System, you’ll answer questions about the type, scope and frequency of work your business does for Orica Kooragang Island. Based on your answers, you’ll be assigned a category to determine which documents we’ll need to get you compliant. You’ll upload those documents for Pegasus safety specialists to verify, and then you can get your workers registered.
Registering your workers
You’ll be sent login details to the Roles Portal of the Orica Workforce Management System, where you’ll create profiles for your employees who work at Orica Kooragang Island. You’ll select the role/s they perform for Orica, upload their qualifications and competencies (licences, tickets), and book online inductions which they complete before attending site. This information is also verified by Pegasus safety specialists. Compliant and inducted workers are issued with access ID cards linked to their online profile – their passport to access Orica Kooragang Island.
