Newcastle, NSW — Nov. 2, 2021 — Pegasus, an Avetta company and leader in worker competency management software and services, has been engaged by multi-disciplinary construction company BESIX Watpac to manage workplace safety standards and workforce compliance on the Sydney Metro Barangaroo Station project.
Barangaroo Station is part of the Sydney Metro City & Southwest project. BESIX Watpac will deliver the underground station platforms and full fit-out, station entrance, a variety of pedestrian and cycling facilities, surrounding roads, and the public domain works, including footpaths, tree planting, lighting and street furniture.
“Safety is always the top priority, and we will ensure BESIX Watpac’s workforce and plant adhere to the highest standards,” said Adam Boyle, SVP Avetta APAC & Managing Director at Pegasus. “Pegasus will use its experience in other rapid transit projects to help manage contractor compliance on the Barangaroo Station.”
Pegasus provides customised and in-depth worker and diversity reporting to meet BESIX Watpac’s reporting obligations. The Pegasus solution manages training and inductions—along with individual worker competency and qualifications—maintains compliance and pre-qualification documentation, provides tools for audit, investigation and inspection of businesses and workers, and tracks performance over the contract term.
In July, regulators approved the acquisition of Pegasus with Avetta®, the leading provider of supply chain risk management software. The combination creates the largest provider of supply chain risk management and compliance solutions with 125,000+ suppliers and more than 1.5 million managed workers.
Avetta’s technology platform, Avetta Connect™, helps companies worldwide manage risk and build resilience in their supply chains—from increasing visibility within the network to ensuring safety and sustainability.
