IMS ACCREDITIATION

Our Integrated Management System (IMS) has been assessed and certified as meeting the requirements of ISO 9001:2015 Quality Management Systems, ISO 14001:2015 Environmental Management Systems and AS/NZS 4801:2001 Occupational Health and Safety Management Systems, to assure the quality of our work, the safety of our people and protection of the environment.

The IMS Manual comprises policies and procedures that provide our employees and subcontractors with a clear understanding of the requirements to be complied with, to ensure that our products and services meet all client and best practice requirements, and record forms and instructions, which are used to verify activities and provide evidence that the specified requirements have been met. The IMS Manual also defines the company objectives, structure and the responsibilities and authorities of our people.

Congratulations to Peta and Andrea and everyone involved for getting this across the line.
