HSEQ Certification

HSEQ Certification Program by Master Electricians Australia

The Master Electricians Australia Health, Safety, Environment and Quality (HSEQ) Certification Program is a comprehensive in-house integrated management systems solution for electrical contractors to facilitate third party certification.



This trusted program is consistent with current legislation and Australian and International management systems standards including:

Background

Master Electricians Australia believes every electrical contractor strives for excellence, quality, and integrity in the way they operate and manage their business systems. Master Electricians Australia recognised the need to develop a HSEQ Certification Program.

The integrated HSEQ management system is designed for Master Electricians to implement into their business to obtain certification against the applicable standards through GRS Certification, a JAS-ANZ accredited certifying body.

A major benefit for members in this approach is that the HSEQ system is tailored to the electrical contracting industry and to individual businesses, completely supported by MEA.

The HSEQ Certification Program Team works closely with you to implement the system into your business to ensure it functions as required. The HSEQ Certification Program team centrally manage:

  • Development and issue of all documents
  • Establishing annual goals and objectives
  • Establishing policy statements
  • Records management
  • Internal audits
  • Workplace inspections
  • Legal identification and updates
  • Incident reporting
  • Monitoring corrective and preventive actions
  • Monitoring customer feedback
  • Health surveillance
  • Evaluation of hazard identification process, and
  • Monitoring monthly reports.

MEA will then be audited on these aspects bi-annually, reducing disruption to members and audit durations, and in turn, helping minimize certification costs and interruptions for members.

HSEQ Certification Program provides you with complimentary access to ME Safety with unlimited access for all your staff. Members conduct their own safety and toolbox meetings, with support from MEA who will provide the content as apart of ME Safety Pro. As part of the process, the program will provide up to two-hours’ consultation per month to ensure the system is working effectively within your business. All HSEQ subscribers are Gold Master Electricians.

Third-party certification with GRS Certification

As a leading business assurance organisation, GRS Certification measures conformance against the relevant standards allowing you to demonstrate your commitment to excellence, quality, and integrity in the way you operate and manage your business systems. GRS Certification developed a certification schedule designed to meet the needs of Master Electricians while minimising disruption and inconvenience. Master Electricians will receive their own certificate from GRS Certification.

Master Electricians Australia’s HSEQ Certification Program is unlike any other on the market:

  • Specifically tailored for the electrical industry and managed by a team of industry experts
