1. Customise System to your Company

The HSEQ Management System allows you to customise it to your business, ensuring your details, personnel and specifications are applied to create your individualised system. NECA will work with your business from the beginning to assist in correctly setting up the system, ensuring it reflects your structure and how you conduct your business.

2. Provided in your Manual

The HSEQ Management Manual allows you to customise it to your business to reflect your structure, scope of works and major risks.

The Mandatory Forms (MF) are directly related to maintaining conformance to the Health, Safety, Environment and Quality (HSEQ) Management System.

The Supportive Forms (SF) assist in the management of the Health, Safety, Environment and Quality (HSEQ) Management Manual, but are not mandatory to the conformance of the System.

Mandatory Policies are directly related to maintaining conformance to the Health, Safety, Environment and Quality (HSEQ) Management System.

Supportive Policies are subordinate policies that sit under one of the main three principle policies of, Work Health & Safety, Environmental or Quality.

Safe Work Method Statements (SWMS) are a formal document that requires the work or task or job to be undertaken to be presented in a logical and safe sequence, through the process of identifying, assessing and controlling hazards and risks.

The Emergency Response Plan is a plan that identifies and controls the possible threats to people, the environment and the integrity of the structure or building or place of work.

The Site Safety Instructions is a set of rules which have been designed to assist people to plan safety and work safely.

The Work Instructions provide instructions on how to safely undertake particular types of work.

A Project WHS Management Plan sets out the arrangements to manage work health and safety on a construction project. The intention of a Project WHS Management Plan is to ensure the risks associated with a construction project are well managed and communicated.

NECA Safety Guide Handbook for Employees (Red Book) is a handy pocket size booklet of industry standards and rules in easy to read layman’s terms, which lays out clearly to employees your expected health and safety requirements of them as they go about their job.
