The Office of the Federal Safety Commissioner (OFSC) was established in 2005 following the Royal Commission into the Building and Construction Industry. It provides best practices for head contractors in Commonwealth-funded building projects to make sure they use a system-based approach to safety.
The OFSC promotes high workplace health and safety standards through the Australian Government Building and Construction Work Health and Safety Accreditation Scheme (the Scheme). This Scheme requires building and construction companies to adhere to multiple operational and reporting practices to improve site safety.
OFSC accreditation is one of the most difficult accreditations to achieve, and is now a requirement to obtain valuable Commonwealth-funded tenders. Without Office of the Federal Safety Commissioner consulting, your business may be unable to tender for government contracts.
