ISO by Industry
Find out what standards are relevant to your industry.
ISO for the Construction Industry
Construction companies operate under high pressure to deliver projects on time and within budgets. The biggest challenge the Construction industry faces today is unskilled or untrained labour and subcontractors. Due to an inefficient workforce, inefficiencies in the system crop up and as a consequence delay projects. This can also lead to costly mistakes being made and projects being made unprofitable.
Another challenge that this industry faces is Workers’ safety. Construction is a high-risk industry and prone to accidents on site. A worker injured on site can lead to high insurance claims being paid and may lead to fines if found that certain regulations are not met. Also, to enter head contracts for building work that is funded directly or indirectly by the Australian Government, Construction companies need to get accreditation with OFSC – Australian Government Building and Construction Accreditation Scheme.
