A commercial opportunity presented for an organisation in Northern Australia to obtain a lease for an existing operational quarry facility and sand extraction pit.
These facilities were the only such resource in the area and demand for the product was high.
As part of the transfer of the lease a review was required and operational procedures needed to be brought in line with current legislative requirements including a detailed Risk Management Plan (RMP).
The proposed owners of the facility lacked the in-house expertise to execute the RMP and engaged INTEGRATED IMPROVEMENT to investigate the risks and prepare a RMP that would meet the mandatory legislative requirements.
INTEGRATED IMPROVEMENT initially reviewed the legislative requirements, consulted the relevant government agencies for any specific expectations, compiled what (limited) documentation existed for the facility, prepared the documentary framework for the RMP and engaged the services of a subject matter expert (SME).
Site inspection was carried out of both facilities and controls established in consultation with the proposed operators.
The final RMP was then lodged with the relevant government department for approval.
The organisation was able to achieve compliance with the legislative requirements within the week and subsequently was able to transfer the lease and commence drawing earnings from the new acquisition.Later INTEGRATED IMPROVEMENT were requested to recruit an appropriate Operations Manager for the facilities, based on our detailed understanding of the operational requirements.
