British Gypsum

The Company British Gypsum is a major authority in the UK construction industry and the country’s leading manufacturer and supplier of gypsum-based plastering and drylining solutions. The company currently has 5 major manufacturing plants in the UK.
The Challenge BG came to Rapid Global looking for a solution to recording contractor inductions and tracking these once completed for the 2000 strong contractor workforce.
The Solution Upon seeing the extent of options that Rapid Induct made available to them British Gypsum decided to replace their entire computer based training induction process with Rapid Induct for all Contractors. They also installed Rapid Access, a fully cohesive compliance document-upload and ID card printing process. The results have been a very strong audit trail with all training and documents for contractors now fully compliant.

"Whilst we continue to roll Rapid Induct out to all sites, the solution has solved 5 critical areas for us. The system is simple to use, flexible and scalable, comprehensive in its ability and the implementation team continue to provide us with brilliant service"

Tom French – Engineering Manager, British Gypsum

The Solution Solvay initially tested the waters with Rapid Induct by rolling it out to a small pilot test group of 200. The results were immediate and within months Solvay rolled the system out to the entire workforce.

Mrs Mac’s

The Company Mrs Mac’s Pies is a manufacturer and distributer of savoury pie and pastry products with a reputation for high quality, service, and innovation in the pie industry.
The Challenge Managers and supervisors were required to induct contractors on site when they arrived. There was little control over the quality of these inductions and it required the resource of valuable management-level time. Also, because Mrs Mac’s operates in local, national and international locations, there was no consistency.
The Solution Rapid Induct now enables Mrs Mac’s to oversee all inductions across the organisation, including Asia, Britain and Holland, from their Perth based headquarters.

"It did exactly what I needed it to do to replace our manual induction process. It’s great that the contractors can complete their induction before they arrive and that they can print a certificate."

Risk Services Manager, Mrs Mac’s Pies, Carrol Zis

Incitec Pivot

The Company Incitec Pivot Limited is a leading global chemicals company specialising in nitrogen-based manufacturing. They are the leading supplier of explosives products and services in North America and the leading supplier of fertilisers in Australia.
The Challenge Incitec Pivot had a very inconsistent approach to their induction process across their 19 major sites and up to 15 smaller sites. There was significant variation in the content delivery. Courses were conducted fortnightly and up to 2 hours of administration time was required for each course.
The Solution Incitec Pivot have created over 25 easy-to use induction courses. For all 30+ sites, one administrator manages all of the content changes and 4 second-level administrators are responsible for the data management side of the system. When the system was implemented, every employee and semipermanent contractor was re-inducted in just two weeks!

"Our health and safety induction is so much easier, has one consistent approach and is easy to audit using the reporting functionality."
