The purpose of this portal is to provide general Health, Safety and Environment (HSE) information to current and future contractors who will be supplying general services to AGL. Additional site specific HSE information and requirements will be made available upon request from relevant AGL personnel during the contractor selection and engagement process, as well as during site premobilisation.

HSE Standards, Procedures, Processes & Resources
HSE Standards & procedures specify the minimum requirements for HSE management whilst working on AGL sites.
Prior to commencing work on an AGL site, HSE Management Processes need to be verified. This is done through an external provider, CM3.
Prior to arriving on site, assurance is required that the correct safe systems of work are identified and in place, and that personnel are appropriately licenced and trained to conduct work safely.
These policies provide information about AGL's Environment and Health and Safety Policies.
The AGL Lifesaving rules are the Safety non-negotiables for personnel working on AGL sites.
Critical Control Checks are in-field observations conducted by AGL leaders to provide assurance that critical safety and environmental aspects of high risk tasks are in place.
The following HSE Standards and Procedures specify the minimum standard for contractor HSE Management on all AGL operational sites and locations.
They are not an exhaustive list, however, they provide a baseline for the development of procedures, SWMS and JSEAs. Please contact your AGL representative for further information if required.

All suppliers entering into a contract with AGL to provides services on AGL sites or customer locations are required to complete HSE Prequalification through the CM3 Prequalification system. Other suppliers may also be requested to complete prequalification, based upon the scope or risk of the required services or supply. The CM3 prequalification process takes approximately 10 working days and is a prerequisite for access to AGL sites.
The CM3 website can be accessed by clicking on the following link.

The Authority to Mobilise (ATM) is a pre-mobilisation check that must be completed by suppliers that provide services on AGL sites, or customer locations. Suppliers are required to complete an ATM form and submit it, along with all requested information, to their nominated AGL Contract Representative, for review and approval, prior to attending AGL sites, or customer locations.
Section 2 of the ATM is an authority to commence work and will be completed with the AGL Representative on site prior to commencing work.
Please note - some service providers, such as delivery drivers/couriers are not required to complete an ATM (excluding the transfer of bulk chemicals and some large plant). Please contact your AGL Contract Representative for clarification.
