The National Electrical and Communications Association (NECA), has developed an industry based Health Safety, Environment and Quality (HSEQ) Management System which is designed to serve the electrical, solar, communications, refrigeration and air conditioning industries. The HSEQ system and supporting documentation has been developed to enable businesses to meet their legal and operational  requirements in relation to health, safety, environment and quality.

The HSEQ system  is a user-friendly management system that businesses can tailor to their company’s individual needs. The HSEQ system has been developed in line with AS/NZS 4801, ISO 9001 and ISO 14001. If businesses choose to gain certification by a third party certification body in future, the HSEQ system has been designed to provide businesses with tools that they can build on.

Businesses who fully implement the NECA HSEQ Management System will be better placed to meet their Health, Safety, Quality and Environmental Legal and Industry obligations.  Should a business choose to follow the path of being third part certified they can go to:

No, certification is only gained by a third party certification body, documentation on its own cannot be certified against, it’s the implementation that is required to be certified against.

Your business can begin the certification journey against AS/NZS 4801, ISO 9001 and ISO 14001.

There is an annual subscription to the HSEQ Management System web portal which contains the library of documentation supporting the management system including, system forms, SWMS and toolbox talks etc. This resource is maintained and kept up to date by NECA so that you can be assured of the most up-to-date and relevant documents. You will be continually notified of any document that has been updated or changed.

The key elements of the HSEQ Management System are:

  1. Business Plan

  2. Manual

  3. Plans

  4. Policies

  5. SOP’s

  6. SWMS

  7. Forms

  8. Registers

  9. Toolboxes

It will depend on how quickly and effectively you can implement your HSEQ Management System.  For example you will need to demonstrate effective onsite implementation and ownership.  NECA expects that in general companies will need a full 12 months to effectively implement key processes and forms etc.  The NECA Health Check would typically occur at (but no later than) the 12 month mark after implementation.
