Plant and Asset Management

All plant and assets used on ACCIONA projects and sites must be fit for use and compliant to Work Health and Safety regulations.

To ensure this, plant and assets are to be registered the ACCIONA Workforce Management System. Upon login for your project (visit Find My ACCIONA Project), you will click on the Manage Assets tile and proceed through the steps to register your plant or asset.

Please review the content on this page which explains how the Workforce Management System is used to manage plant and assets, and the types of plant and assets requiring registration.

What is plant?

Plant is any machinery, equipment, appliance, container, implement and tool. It includes any component, or anything fitted or connected to any of those these.

Plant includes items as diverse as lifts, cranes, computers, machinery, conveyors, forklifts, vehicles, power tools and amusement devices, including scaffolding.

Which plant and assets require registration?

Each item below requires registration in the ACCIONA Workforce Management system:

  • All mobile powered plant- earthmoving, tunneling, piling rigs, paving machines, rail
  • Motor vehicles
  • Heavy vehicles
  • Trailers
  • Cranes with SWL over 1 tonne
  • Elevating work platforms all types
  • Concrete pumping plant, fixed, truck and trailer mounted
  • Concrete batching plants
  • Generators greater than 10kva
  • Engine driven water pumps greater than 75mm diameter
  • Engine driven welders greater than 250 amps
  • Engine driven lighting plants
  • Boats and barges

Some plant may fall into multiple types, e.g. a crane truck. In these cases, the primary function will determine the plant type – the crane, in this example. If you require clarification, contact your site representative.

Can’t find your plant or asset listed?

Which plant and assets do NOT require registration?

Any plant that relies exclusively on manual power or propulsion for its operation, and is designed to be primarily supported by hand, does not need to be registered. Such plant includes drills, saws, vibrating plates, flex drive units, and hand tools.

NOTE that while these items do not require registration, an operation manual must be supplied, and each item must be in correct operating condition and maintained as per manufacturer’s maintenance guide. Electrical equipment must have current test and tag fitted.

Vehicles entering site for deliveries also do not require registration. However, if the delivery vehicle performs work on site, for example a crane truck unloading itself, then registration is required.

Plant and asset registration

Registration steps:

  1. Plant supplier provides required documents through the ACCIONA Workforce Management System for verification and approval
  2. When approved, supplier is notified, and a unique ID sticker issued
  3. Authorised ACCIONA representative completes a verification inspection on the project site
  4. Plant is approved to work on site

Registration applies to all applicable plant and assets on an ACCIONA project or site, including:

  • Hired
  • Subcontractor
  • Company-owned

The contractor bringing the plant or asset to site is responsible for its registration, even if the plant has been hired from a third party.

Where plant is being hired directly by ACCIONA, terms of hire, rates and insurances are not part of this process and are covered in the Plant Hire Agreement.

Project-specific requirements

Some projects may have specific plant requirements in addition to mandatory ACCIONA requirements. These will be advised at the time of contractor engagement or in the Plant Hire Agreement. The Workforce Management System will prompt these to be provided where applicable.

Plant movements on and off site

Once plant has been registered to site, it can leave and return as its verification is recorded in the Workforce Management System at site entry and exit.

Each time plant or an asset attempts to return to site, expired documents, registrations, services or inspections will be flagged, and plant will not be allowed on site. It is the plant supplier’s responsibility to ensure records are maintained in the system.
