Increasingly, civil contractors seek to demonstrate their commitment to excellence and continuous improvement in safety, quality and environmental management by establishing a third party-accredited integrated management system (IMS).
In response, CCF develops and maintains the CCF Civil Construction Management Code and Management System Resource Documents (CCF Code and MSRD).
The CCF Code and MSRD are available FREE for CCF WA Contractor Members via our Member Portal.
CCF WA Contractor Members will also receive regular updates of the MSRD suite and templates, as they are continually improved.
What is the CCF Civil Construction Management Code?
The CCF Code draws together the civil construction-related elements of the established Quality (ISO9001), Workplace Health and Safety (AS/NZS 4801, ISO 45001), and Environmental Management (AS/NZS ISO 14001) Standards into one system, specifically designed for civil construction operations.
The separate Standards are designed for broad application across various sectors (manufacturing, health care etc) and include many requirements that are not relevant to civil construction operations. Purchasing the individual standards, then working through them to identify and interpret the civil-specific requirements can significantly increase the cost and complexity of implementing and accrediting an integrated management system.
CCF has analysed the separate Standards and distilled the civil construction-specific requirements into one practical, comprehensive, recognised Standard specifically designed for civil construction operations – the CCF Code.
The Code is written in the language of construction. It’s designed for ease of use, with all requirements clearly stated.Comprehensive:
The Code includes every HSEQ requirement a civil construction business needs to operate to the highest accepted standards.Recognised
: State government road, water and land development authorities around Australia accept a CCF Code-compliant management system as proof of compliance for tendering.
The CCF Code is accredited by the Joint Accreditation System of Australia and New Zealand (JAS-ANZ) for third party certification. Click here to view information on the JAS-ANZ website.
JAS-ANZ recognises the benefits of the CCF Code and Management System as:
Simplifies compliance with quality, workplace health and safety, and environmental requirements for the civil construction and related industries.
- Enables certified organisations in the civil construction and related industries to demonstrate that their services meet the industry benchmark and relevant regulatory requirements.
To achieve and maintain CCF Certified (accredited) Contractor status for their CCF Code-compliant integrated management systems, contractors undergo an annual audit by a JAS-ANZ accredited third party certification body.
What are the CCF Management System Resource Documents?
Like all Standards, the CCF Code specifies what actions are necessary to achieve a compliant management system. The Code also requires the management system to generate objective evidence – documents demonstrating that business and project risks are being effectively managed.
To save Members time and money, CCF has developed the Management System Reference Documents (MSRD), comprising over 50 template policies, plans, registers and forms.
We are constantly expanding and revising the MSRD to ensure they remain comprehensive, relevant and up to date. Emerging issues such as Mental Health, Social Procurement, Sustainability, and Climate Change pose new challenges for Contractors to effectively respond and manage. New policies and procedures will be added to the MSRD as they are developed.
