What we do

From compliance and risk management through to employee recruitment and training, we're experienced in providing businesses with the tools they need to operate efficiently. Without assistance from trusted professionals, managing compliance and other responsibilities can get in the way of your core business objectives.

Not only do we provide a variety of online training and short courses for staff, we also have our own online compliance management software - Smartek - that's designed to take the stress out of the regulation process. Our services broadly fall into eight overarching and complementary categories:

Our training offerings are designed to work across all industries with businesses of any shape and size. Not only are our training solutions comprehensive and built on years of experience in various industries, they're convenient too. Some are offered online and we also conduct workplace training sessions that are tailored to meet the unique aspects of each business we work with.

We've been operating as a registered training organisation (RTO) since 2001, and our registration with the Australian Skills Quality Authority means you can be confident in our ability to provide nationally recognised training services.

To ensure organisations across Australia can take an accurate and controlled approach to their compliance concerns - yet hands-off and stress-free - we created Smartek. The cost-effective software solution focuses on business compliance with regulatory and operational standards in relation to people, plant, places, and processes.

We understand that for many industries compliance is an ever-changing concern, and work to stay up-to-date with the needs of each industry.

Background checks are critical for all candidates, especially in government positions or upper management roles. Vetting involves more than just a reference check - the process requires businesses to delve a bit deeper into an applicant's background.

Personnel security assessments are an essential yet difficult and time-consuming aspect of the recruitment process. To ensure these checks are completed to the highest standard, it's worth consulting an external expert that can take the stress out of the process.

By enlisting Barringtons' help, you can access experts that process applications in accordance with the Australian Government Personnel Security Protocol, Version 2.0, 1 September 2014. Since 2007, Barringtons has been providing security clearance assessments to the Australian government. Many of our senior assessing officers have worked in the industry for more than 10 years, amassing significant experience during that time.
