Synergy understands the importance and complexity of environmental and health and safety issues associated with our projects. Stringent, uncompromising Environmental, Quality, Occupational Health and Safety Management Systems are applied to all of our projects. The documented policies and procedures of our management systems enable us to consistently meet and exceed client expectations ensuring accountability and successful project outcomes.
Environmental Management System
Synergy’s Environmental Management System provides a coordinated approach to avoid, reduce and control the adverse environmental impacts associated with our activities, products and services. Project specific Environmental Management Plans (EMP) are developed and employed for every project, allowing for coordinated system implementation and detailed environmental protection measures to be adhered to.
The EMP documents environmental protection practices, resources and the sequence of activities necessary to comply with relevant legislative requirement, as well as the conditions of any applicable licence, approval or permit. Through the EMP we identify the potential adverse environmental impacts associated with a project, document the appropriate protection measures to keep environmental effects within compliance limits, and list the person/s responsible for their implementation in each case. Prior to commencing works on site, personnel are provided with comprehensive information and training to achieve the level of awareness and competency appropriate to their assigned activities.
Quality Management System
Synergy adopts a process approach to our Quality Management to enhance client satisfaction through meeting or exceeding expectations and industry standards. The process approach emphasizes understanding of client needs and applicable standards through the obtaining of ongoing performance results combined with the continual improvement of processes based on measurable objectives and targets.
Synergy develops project specific Quality Management Plans (QMPs) to: establish project deliverables; identify best-practice measures; and to specify identification procedures for potential non-conformance and implement corrective action. Inspection and Test Plans are implemented to identify the type and frequency of specific activities. This allows us to monitor and verify project deliverables meet defined quality standards, and that the processes used to manage and create the deliverables are followed and are effective. Reporting on the status of project deliverables and key performance indicators are also prescribed in the Quality Management Plan.
Workplace Health and Safety Management System
Synergy’s Workplace Health and Safety (WH&S) Management System provides a framework for the systematic management of health and safety across the organization, incorporating a cyclical process of planning, implementation, review and improvement for continual enhancement. Synergy’s WH&S Management System is third party accredited and establishes measurable objectives and targets for continual improvement, fostering a positive safety culture and eliminating work related incidents. Our consultative risk management approach eliminates workplace hazards across all business activities, or dramatically minimises the associated risks to acceptable levels, where it is not practicable to eliminate them.
Synergy formulates project specific WH&S Management Plans to define responsibilities and accountabilities, drive compliance with legislative requirements and prescribe arrangements for risk management, hazard reporting, consultation, incident management, education and training. The WH&S Management Plan also identifies the requirements for ongoing inspection and monitoring activities to evaluate compliance and identify areas of underperformance, so that corrective actions can to be taken to strengthen safeguards and improve outcomes.
Our operations are compliant with the Work Health and Safety Act 2011 (WH&S Act) integrating health and safety into all aspects of the company’s activities.
