Certified Management System

HEQ has three certified and registered management systems to international and national standards. HEQ is committed to complying with these chosen standards by being regularly audited by an independent JAS-ANZ approved external third party.

Our three certified management systems are integrated and are collectively know as our QSE (Quality Safety and Environment) Management System.


Cert-Logo-9001   Certified AS/NZS ISO 9001 Quality Management System

HEQ’s 9001 Certificate

The main purpose of 9001 is to help organizations meet their customer’s needs and expectations and to comply with all relevant regulatory and statutory requirements. An organization can achieve these important objectives if it continually tries to improve the suitability, adequacy,  and effectiveness of the system.

A quality management system (QMS) is a set of interrelated or interacting elements that organizations use to formulate quality policies and quality objectives and to establish the processes that are needed to ensure that these policies are followed and these objectives are achieved.


Cert-Logo-4801  Certified AS/NZS 4801 Safety Management System

HEQ’s 4801 Certificate

This standard specifies the requirements for a recognised and compliant Safety Management System that enables an organisation to formulate a policy and objectives taking into account legislative requirements and information about hazards or risks over which the organisation may exert control and over which it can be expected to have influence.

Moreover it is a systematic approach to managing safety, including the necessary organizational structures, accountabilities, policies and procedures.


Cert-Logo-14001  Certified AS/NZS ISO 14001 Environmental Management System

HEQ’s 14000 Certificate

ISO 14001 sets out the criteria for a compliant Environmental Management System (EMS). It maps out a framework that a company or organization can follow to set up an effective EMS. It is used to improve resource efficiency, reduce waste, and drive down costs.

Its main aim is to assist companies in continually improving their environmental performance, while complying with any applicable legislation. Organizations are responsible for setting their own targets and performance measures, with the standard serving to assist them in meeting objectives and goals and in the subsequent monitoring and measurement of these.
