Easier Contractor & Visitor Management for Packaging Manufacturer Zacpac

Contractor management

ZACPAC were using paper-sign in books and a paper based induction program at their packaging facilities. This made contractor management in particular very difficult. They needed to find a system that wasn’t time consuming to set-up or maintain, which could manage contractors, visitors and employees at their facilities. They also needed to make sure the information they were collecting from visitors and contractors on site was being collected properly, effectively and efficiently to make sure they were compliant with safety regulations.
ZACPAC were losing hours a day to people doing manual inductions that were then stored in a filing cabinet, which wasn’t much use to them.

After a review of WhosOnLocation ticked all our boxes, we found out it was low cost and could be implemented in days, which was great.

Key Challenges

Zacpac needed to: :

  • Make sure every visitor and contractor coming on-site has been inducted, has the right qualifications and insurances
  • Ensure they were compliant with Australian Health and Safety regulations
  • Use a system that didn’t take up too much staff time
  • Replace their paper sign-in form and induction paperwork
  • Sign-in multiple contractors and visitors quickly
  • Let staff handle the day to day running of the system

I like that we could set it up and essentially forget it, as it just works.

The future roadmap of features to come really appealed to us, things like the Induction Module for contractors.
