What’s an SMS review?

A SMS review is an independent desktop audit of your Work Health and Safety documents completed by a qualified WHS professional. It will compare your information against legal and industry requirements to ensure your systems are meeting these obligations. Ausgrid contractors will be contacted when the SMS review is complete and you are compliant in the system. If you do not pass the SMS review, we’ll send you a corrective action report detailing the action we can help you take to become compliant. Contractors completing the high risk SMS need to score a minimum of 80% to pass.

You will only be compliant when both your SMS and registration has been verified and approved.

Please allow up to 1  – 2 hours to upload all of the documents in your review. If you run out of time to complete the SMS review in one session, your work will be saved and the next time you login, you can continue from where you left it. If you are part of a franchisee service, then you may have documents available from your parent company.

The documents you’ll be asked to upload in the system depend on your category and may include, but are not limited to:

  • WHS / OHS Policy
  • Environmental Policy
  • Risk Management Procedures
  • Systems of Work process including incident management
  • Drug and Alcohol management
  • Emergency management
  • Training procedures including induction management
  • Sub-Contractor Management (if applicable)
  • Continual improvement processes
