In the world of Pegasus, you’ll hear the word ‘compliant’ more than occasionally. But what does it mean and how do you get there?

Compliance, in the context of the workplace, boils down to following a set of rules. These rules can be individual workplace policies, standards, specifications workers need to meet to undertake their role, or law—such as the Work Health Safety Act 2011 (which we’ve unpacked here).

It’s simple when you think about it. You want the people working for you to be the right people for their roles (through training, skills, licences and qualifications). With workplace safety more important than ever, you also want to make sure everyone is up to date with your policies.

Join us as we look at how to get your workforce compliant, how Pegasus helps keep them compliant, and an often-overlooked avenue for maintaining compliance and improving safety outcomes.

Getting your workforce compliant

Workforce compliance is the reason why companies like Pegasus exist. With our workforce management software, we keep your workforce safe on site.

We help you sleep at night by pre-qualifying your contracting companies, making sure your workers are competent, providing inductions and training, only granting site access to those who pass those first three parts, and we even make sure the plant and assets on your sites are up to code.

Managed services helps your workforce reach compliance

When you partner with Pegasus, there’s a level of managed service you can come to expect from us (which we’ve laid out here). If there are only two things you take away from that in this context, it’s that:

  1. Business rules specific to you will help keep your workforce compliant. When everyone understands exactly what’s needed to achieve and maintain compliance, time is saved, and workers are on the job quickly.
  2. There’s a whole host of people at Pegasus whose job it is to help support the ongoing compliance of your workforce.

So, tell me: how do they stay compliant?

A benefit of the managed service element of our partnership is that our involvement is ongoing. We don’t walk away after the software implementation is complete.

Why is this so important? Because there’s no use making sure your workforce is compliant at the beginning if down the track, they’re not.

If an incident occurs, the Work Health and Safety Inspector doesn’t care about the compliance status of your workers six months ago—they’re interested in compliance today.

Because of this, any time training is due to be taken again, an insurance close to lapsing, and a licence set to expire, your contractors receive an automated reminder from Pegasus.

But wait, there’s something else you can do!

A really simple way to help maintain compliance and make sure your workforce is safe is investing in training.

On top of our brilliant LMS, did you know Pegasus has a ‘Ready-to-Go Course List’ where there is a whole slew of online customisable courses available for you to purchase? With continual learning linked to boosted performance, increased productivity and reduced employee turnover, online courses are a simple way to keep your workforce compliant and improve your business.

What are the benefits of online training?

1. Flexibility

Workers can train in a way and time that works best for them. It doesn’t matter if they use a Mac, PC, tablet or mobile phone, as long as they have access to the internet and a web browser, they can complete training from wherever and whenever suits them.

2. Higher Retention

Learning online boosts retention rates by 25 to 60 per cent, so your workers are more likely to remember and be able to implement what they learn.

3. Safe and Accessible

Alongside changing businesses, the COVID-19 pandemic has changed the way we learn.  With increasingly dispersed workforces, classroom learning is on the way out.

Online learning allows you to train your workers no matter where they’re located, and decreases any risks associated with in-person learning.

4. Save Money and Time

Research shows corporate learning online takes 40 to 60 per cent less time to complete when compared to traditional learning. Online training can be delivered quickly. Workers can learn new skills and information almost immediately.
