Sell & Parker

The Client

Trading since 1966 Sell & Parker Metal Recycling Services is an Australian owned and operated private company. They are buyers and sellers of all grades and all quantities of Ferrous and Non-Ferrous metals. With over 200 hundred employees, they have yards at Blacktown, Banksmeadow, Ingleburn, Coffs Harbour, Nowra and Newcastle, stretching all the way to Port Hedland in WA and Darwin in the NT.


All sites were running their own independent contractor compliance processes using different tools and systems, in some cases managing information in spreadsheets etc. This approach, although not by design, significantly increased the risk around engaging potentially non-compliant contractors. Without a tool to provide the appropriate oversight across the organisations operations, meant that remediating this issue at any given time posed a challenge.

Sell and Parker realised they needed:

  • An efficient, easily accessible (all sites across the country) platform for contractor compliance.
  • A process that not only pre-qualifies contractors to strict standards (validation criteria) but also ensures ongoing currency of all contactor compliance requirements
  • A process that complies with the appropriate due diligence provisions for Company Directors in the current WHS legislation.

Our Solution

Sell and Parker first implemented Conserve in April of 2014. An extensive review of the solutions on the market showed that Conserve was the most affordable, efficient, and user-friendly platform available. It provides a structured and consistent approach for the management of contractor compliance information across all sites in Australia.  The Conserve App allows staff to access contractor information, allowing them to check compliance prior to engagement and monitor compliance whilst the contractors are providing services. The Conserve specialist support team assists Sell and Parker’s new contractors achieve compliance with their criteria.

The Outcome


75% Contractor Compliance across the organisation and progressively heading towards 100% compliance


Average time for a new contractor to achieve compliance has been drastically reduced


A consistent approach to contractor compliance management across the entire business


Better visibility and stronger reporting on contractor performance


Assurance that we meet our legislative obligations in relation to our contractors.
