On April 16, 2018 changes to labour licensing legislation were introduced across Queensland, Victoria and South Australia enforcing companies providing labour of any kind to become compliant with the new laws.
For Labour Solutions Australia having this accreditation is vital -but it’s not the only one we need to be operating legally. Across the industry there are various compliance requirements that have been established internationally and by Australian state and federal governments to help protect workers and address illegal operations.
As one of the largest labour service companies, LSA seeks to help establish and maintain these critical industry standards and reinforce our reputation as a legitimate and established provider.
LSA are compliant across all facets of our business:
- ISO 9001 Quality Management Systems (September 2015)
- AS/NZS 4801 Occupational Health & Safety Management Systems (September 2015)
- ISO/IEC17020 Accredited for Meat Inspection Services
- Licensed Labour Hire Provider (April 2018)
- StaffSure Accredited (June 2018)
StaffSure Accreditation was introduced in 2018 and is a certification scheme for business, government and workers to identify and partner with reputable workforce service providers and covers six business integrity elements:
- Fit and proper persons own and run the business
- Work status and remuneration to ensure workers receive minimum employment entitlements
- Financial assurance to operate the business sustainably
- Safe work for all workers
- Immigration and visa laws are complied with
- Accommodation supplied by employers or clients is suitable and rent is fair
Committed to ethical improvements across the industry and ensuring best practice for our clients and candidates, LSA welcomed the scheme which sets national levels and is aimed at reducing the number of rogue operators.
As one of the Australia’s leading labour hire companies, LSA believes the workplace should be a great place for everyone. Making sure companies meet their compliance standards helps to address some key industry challenges.
