Our commitments to quality, safety and the environment are underpinned by the application of a single
Integrated Management System (“IMS”) that meets the requirements of three international standards, viz:
- ISO 9001 – Quality Management
- ISO 14001 – Environmental Management
- AS NZ 4801 & OHSAS 18001 – Occupational Health and Safety Management.
Through sensible implementation of these standards, our core objective is to be recognised as having
attained the highest levels of excellence across all our activities. In line with this objective our staff must
perform their duties in accordance with our standards, all statutory and regulatory requirements, the requirements of
our customers, and with careful consideration of the environment in which they work and live. Our Integrated
Management Systems incorporate requirements for the prevention of pollution, injury and ill health and frameworks for
setting and reviewing hazards, risks, objectives and targets across the business including those for health, safety,
and the environment.
We are working hard to meet our customers’ needs and exceed their expectations. We must also meet the
expectations of our shareholders and other stakeholders, and we aim to provide the highest standards of assistance and
care for those whom we are privileged to serve.
