TOTAL QUALITY MANAGEMENT SYSTEM OUTLINE
We are committed to managing all our operations in a manner that is efficient in terms of cost effectiveness, is completed in a manner that minimises the risk of injury to staff and the general public, and in an environmentally friendly manner. We recognise that all three of these components are closely inter linked and dependent upon each other. Therefore, we have integrated the three separate set of requirements. The system is designed to comply with the requirements of:
• ISO 9001: 2008 Quality Management Systems - requirements
• AS4801: 2001 OHS Management Systems
• ISO14001:2004 Environmental Management Systems - Requirements
Although we have integrated the three separate requirements we have developed a separate Policy Statement for quality, safety and environmental issues to ensure that the specific aims and objectives for each are clearly documented and understood. We review and amend our policies in this regard on a yearly basis. We have measurable goals for these fields that we use to determine our level of compliance and give focus for future improvements.
The system is fully integrated, as the three separate standards have similar requirements. In this case we generally address the requirements in a single procedure as part of the QA documents. The OHS and ENV sections, therefore address requirements that are not a part of ISO9001, and / or to demonstrate compliance to legislative requirements.
No portion of the Quality System documents may be copied without the formal approval of TCDE management.
