Australian Tanks have gone through an extremely beneficial and relatively pain free process to achieve accreditation.
The basics of quality management is to ensure your business has procedures in place to not only check the work you do, but find ways that the work you do can be improved.
Australian Tanks bought in a specialist to access our business and to ensure the correct audit control procedures were in place. Australian Tanks have achieved the ISO 9000 (Quality) , ISO 14000 (Environmental) and AS4804 (Safety) Quality Assurance Requirements.
Quality Assurance is a system where there is a structure of monitoring operations at a number of levels to international standards. By benchmarking the company’s activities, through auditing and key performance indicators, a business can operate effectively and reduce its impact of defects or non-conformance to procedures and regulations. This can be used as a risk management tool and also can reduce your insurance premiums by up to 10 per cent.
Businesses with Quality Assurance Systems are identified as preferred suppliers to many major Companies and Government Departments over businesses without systems in place. For Australian Tanks it has allowed us to secure a range of big companies as clients and has also allowed us to supply a range of our products into Local, State and Federal Departments including Defence.
The Quality, Safety and Environmental Manual (System Manual) outlines the principles and objectives which are common to all company activities and describes the system elements which cover the activities of management operation and reference other control documents. The System Manual is the primary key to the overall direction of the management system, and provides secondary (guide) references to operational documentation.
