In the event of a workplace incident, both clients and the business that service them are vulnerable to safety risks and, in the event of an incident, legal liabilities. The nature of compliance can be dynamic and, as legislation develops, businesses need to mature their own safety management, systems, and processes to reflect their obligations relative to their scope of works.
Being on Cm3 is not only recognised by industry leaders as a reflection of a contractor’s focus on safety and compliance but also provides significant value in being able to demonstrate due diligence. The annual assessment that contractors complete on Cm3 is tailored to collect and review their insurances, licences, health and safety practices, and other documentation against their clients’ compliance requirements and best practice.
Grolife has been a contractor on Cm3 for nearly a decade, leveraging Cm3 to meet their client requirements, improve their internal safety management processes, and uphold their commitment to keep their workers safe. Read on to learn more.
Grolife’s Cm3 Journey
Grolife is a Southeast Queensland based group of companies that first joined the Cm3 network in 2016.
Currently servicing clients in the commercial, retail, and industrial sectors across their three business units, Grolife is committed to delivering premium quality maintenance services.
While joining Cm3 was initially a requirement of their client, Grolife recognised the value of the Cm3 assessment process for their business, taking advantage of the opportunity to have their processes and WHS capability assessed by a team of industry experts.
Grolife’s 8-year tenure with Cm3 reflects their long-standing commitment to workplace safety and compliance. They leverage Cm3’s service to audit their safety systems and to gain a compliant status for clients to engage them confidently.
“In the early stages of the company’s growth, Cm3 not only monitored and checked our OH&S systems but also brought to our attention areas where we needed improvement. From the feedback given by the Cm3 team we were able to develop policies and procedures that help increase our safety levels and reduce risks associated with the works we provide.
Initially this process was tedious as we realised how many areas we required improvement in. However, as the company has grown and we have continued to develop our OH&S systems, the annual review has reduced to only taking a few minutes.
