What is the civil construction management code?
Designed by the Australian Civil Contractors Federation or the CCF, civil construction management is a code which is based on international standards for quality, safety, and environmental management. These management systems have been tailored to meet the needs of the civil construction industry and allow businesses to show their compliance without getting fully certified.
Why should my company become CCF certified?
By becoming CCF certified, contractors will be able to implement management systems under the guidance of the CCF code, which comes with an JAS-ANZ audit accreditation. By becoming certified, businesses will be able to demonstrate that they have the ability to implement the appropriate systems which meet legislative requirements.
A Management System Document Suit (MSDS), developed by the CCF will also be available to help contractors maintain ongoing compliance with the CCF Code and ensure that they are fulfilling their construction compliance requirements as well as have abundant resources to assist in operations management and record keeping.
The civil construction industry is a complex one. There are many rules and regulations and, as worker safety is of the highest priority, they can be quite time consuming to work through.
However, CCF (Civil Contractor’s Federation) has collated the CCF Civil Construction Management Code. The code was developed by CCF and draws together elements of quality, workplace health and safety, and environmental management in one system for the civil construction and related industries.
CCF certification enhances the working situation of businesses that choose to implement it. The benefits of CCF certification are undeniable.
-Enables certified organisations in the civil construction and related industries to demonstrate that their services meet the industry benchmark and relevant regulatory requirements.
-Simplifies compliance with quality, workplace health and safety, and environmental requirements for the civil construction and related industries.
A Civil Construction Management Code has been developed to help businesses acquire the expected standards. Customised for the civil construction industry, the Code is based on the Australian and international standards for quality, safety and environmental management systems.
The CCF certification system has been designed to make it easier for small businesses to achieve CCF certification. An Integrated Management Systems Kit has been designed, with templates and a framework in which you can develop your system within the CCF Code.
CCF Certification can directly contribute to business success. When both clients and employees see that the business is invested in care, compliance and legitimacy it creates and enhances confidence and trust. CCF Certification will attract good quality employees – turnover will be lower as the benefits of a company who prioritises CCF Certification will quickly become apparent to staff.
Likewise, clients who see that a business is prepared to invest in CCF Certification will be more inclined to be satisfied with their service and either recommend the business to others or to become a repeat buyer themselves.
