The management of the project (including cost control, resource management and program control) is handled by the Project Manager allocated to the job.
1. Project Management Plans (PMP)
Prior to the commencement of construction, a project specific Project Management Plan is prepared to address all site specific issues with close attention to both the Contract and Client requirements.
The PMP then details the Quality, OH&S and Enviromental procedures which are to be followed for the life of the Contract; these are further clarified in Integrated Management Systems (IMS). This enables the Project Manager to effectively achieve a high level of control over all essential project matters.
2. Integrated Management Systems (IMS)
Australasian Construction values the importance of Quality Assurance, Environment Management and Occupational Health & Safety systems in the workplace. We actively demonstrate a commitment to these workplace management systems through accreditation to the CCF Civil Contractors Management Code Integrated Management System (IMS) as recognised on the
16th August 2000.
Continual business improvement is vital in maintaining any high quality service. Australasian Construction has qualified employees in house who conduct regular internal audits with reporting and monitoring systems in place to ensure adequate awareness and correct implementation of the IMS.
3. Quality Assurance (QA)
The IMS substantially satisfies the requirements of AS/NZS ISO 9001:2000. Our Company Policy, Systems Manual and Operational Procedures have all been developed and implemented with Australasian Constructions varied work scope in mind.
The implementation of our quality system at all levels facilitates the rapid identification of system problems and unsures an optimal working system - resulting in greater productivity, reduced operating costs, reduced exposure to liabilities and ultimately increased customer satisfaction.
Quality issues are addressed in the PMP, this may include listing of responsible personnel, document and data control and internal auditing schedules.
4. Occupational Health and Safety (OH&S)
All Australasian Construction employees are aware of the IMS and the comprehensive Occupational Health & Safety system implemented and monitored to ensure a safe working environment is achieved and maintained in all levels of the company.
This system which closely corresponds to the requirements of Safety AS 4801:2001 consists of Australasian Construction's Company Policy, OH&S Handbook, Work Instructions along with associated documentsd such as the PMP.
As outlined in the PMP, a project specific OH&S risk assessment is performed in order to identify safety hazards, personal protective equipment (PPE) and other OH&S factors to consider. Information derived from these and other assessments form the basis of site specific personnel inductions.
Monitoring and reporting procedures such as Accident/Incident Reporting are also documented.
5. Environmental Management
In order to achieve and maintain a high standard with regard to environmental performance, Australasian Construction has developed and implements an environmental management system which has been developed in line with AS/NZS ISO 14001:2004.
Australasian Construction is committed to minimising the potential impacts on the environment, which may arise as a result of our operation. In order to achieve this Australasian Construction ensures that the operations of the company comply with the Environment Protection Act 1993 and any other relevant Legislation, Standards and Codes of Practice.
As previously indicated, prior to commencing work on a new project, a PMP is developed which ensures that an on site enviromental risk assessment is conducted, when necessary, to identify any site specific enviromental issues and to be included in any site specific induction.
