Sydney Markets. Controlling Safety and Fresh Produce
Sydney Markets selected TIKS - Australia’s leading health and safety application platform - as their Visitor Management solution.
The solution now allows contractors, visitors and staff to sign-in, self induct and print verification badges with the ease of our Full branded free standing tablet solution. Sydney Markets main focus for this solution was to capture and retain information of contractors while also notifying Management when a visitor comes on site, staff sign on and visitor and contractor inductions.
Documenting the arrival of visitor and contractor names, times and who they are visiting is not only a sign of a well organised company, it has been a long time requirement under the Work Health and Safety Act. Considering the act also says that employers are responsible for ensuring the safety of all site visitors in an emergency, its easy to imagine why keeping track of all visitors is critical.
Visitors and contractors are clearly identified by displaying a Visitor ID pass prominently on their outer clothing. This will enable workers to be aware of their presence in the workplace and, importantly, will assist in the visitor’s safe evacuation from the site in the event of an emergency.
Everyday Sydney Markets have over 1000 forklifts operational and tenants on site everyday, the emphasis on safety awareness is vital. The decision to move forward with current technology in safety systems was a move in the right direction for Sydney Markets to improve the workflow using TIKS' visitor and contractor management. This has given Sydney Markets the ability to move away from paper based sign in books and inductions to then give the flexibility of updating inductions while also downloading monthly reports, saving hours of manual data entry.
Sydney Markets is continuing to improve their safety systems across both Homebush and Haymarket sites. TIKS will continue to work with Sydney Markets in improving the safety systems being implemented into the next phase of their project.
TIKS are proud to have been part of the exciting new refurbishment to Sydney Markets Building in Homebush and Paddy’s markets new Information centre in Haymarket. Changes in technology have resulted in outdated workflows. The refurbishment will ensure the Markets remain fit for purpose into the future by adding significant technology such as VMS hardware to support contractor and visitor registration and digital signage to promote updates on events at the markets and safety messages.
