ALFA. The performance rating app for short-term asbestos removal operatives.

ALFA has been developed by ARCA to support members in the selection of short-term operatives from Labour Supply members.

Using ALFA, ARCA member contractors rate the performance of operatives to support future selection and identify any training needs.

Key Benefits

Reassurance of labour competence

Being able to view previous ratings of agency labour enables ARCA member contractors to demonstrate the capability and attitude of short-term operatives.

Performance feedback

Agency operatives are assessed by ARCA member contractors while working on-site, these performance ratings will support all ARCA members using ALFA with their future selections.

Helps identify training and development needs

Feedback from ARCA member contractors can identify areas where an operative could improve, therefore supporting the operative’s development and future selection.

Automated system

ALFA provides contractors and labour supply agencies with an online system for the selection of short-term operatives for asbestos removal jobs, with all training and certificate information immediately available.

How does it work?

After receiving a request for short-term labour for a specific job, a registered Labour Agency uses ALFA to find and select suitable operatives to send to the contractor.

  • Within ALFA an operative has an overall performance rating, and their safety and training records are available. This information assists the selection of operatives for an asbestos removal job.
  • When an operative is working for an ARCA member contractor, the contractor’s site supervisor will rate the operative’s performance through ALFA.
  • This rating information is immediately used to update the operative’s overall performance rating.
