Forest Coach Lines Pty Ltd is an Australian bus and coach operator in the northern suburbs of Sydney, New South Wales. Originally founded in 1930 as Royle Brothers, Forest Coach Lines Pty Ltd has serviced the northern suburbs community for over 85 years, making it one of Australia’s longest running transport companies.
Boasting a fleet of 101 buses and coaches, this family owned business has developed one of Australia’s most innovative and presentable fleets; and with the development of the new Northern Beaches Hospital, the growth potential of Forest Coach Lines Pty Ltd is staggering with plans to boost its fleet by thirty per cent to cope with the greater demand for buses in the region.
Compliance Council recommended our trademark eight-week process. As part of the process, Compliance Council conducted implementation activities to increase the awareness of Management Systems and their processes to key stakeholders which included Forest Coach Lines Pty Ltd’s managers, supervisors, and employees. Though there were drafted WHS procedures previous to Compliance Council’s engagement with the Forest Coaches team, none of these procedures were actively applied throughout the company. Compliance Council handled this situation as if the client did not have anything at all.
Forest Coach Lines Pty Ltd commenced the project in late April, 2016. The development and implementation of an Integrated Management System took no longer than two months, with certification at the end of June, 2016.
The WHS and Environmental Risk Register allowed them to identify safety hazards and environmental aspects associated with Forest operations. Subsequently, this allows them to continuously evaluate their tasks and implement controls to minimise these risks.
