ISO 9001:2008- World's leading Management System Standard

The ISO9001: 2008 is a comprehensive process- focused framework upon which WGE has built business processes that lead to the successful achievements of objectives. The WGE business management system has created confidence among our stakeholders in the capability of our processes and the reliability of our products and services; while at the same time providing improved risk management, and a basis for continual improvement leading to increased customer satisfaction and ultimately to the success of WGE.

ISO14001

ISO 14001 is an international standard developed by the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) through dedicated technical committees representing approximately 150 countries around the world. Its purpose is to enable an organization of any type or size to develop and implement a policy committing it to prevention of pollution, compliance with legal and other requirements, and continual improvement.

The realization of this commitment will be a management system that recognizes and manages the primary environmental issues through awareness and assessment of applicable legal requirements, objectives for improvement, assignment of responsibilities, competent personnel, communications, procedures, controls and monitoring, emergency response capability, self correction and assessment, and internal reviews. These processes are to be based on the plan-Do-Check-Act cycle.

AS4801:2001

The protection of the health and safety of all employees is vital to the success of WGE.

AS/NZS 4801:2001 is used as the benchmark to assess Occupational Health & Safety Management system for WGE. Whilst this is an Australian/New Zeal and Standard, Organizations in other countries have adopted the requirements.

In our continually changing workplace environment, the effective assessment and management of OHS issues is paramount.
