One of TQCSI-Yaran’s clients, PSG Holdings has joined forces with Lend Lease Holdings to replace the RAN’s old Oil Wharf at Garden Island in Sydney. 

To be known as the Bayinguwa Critical Wharf Works Project, the $213 million project was announced today and is due for completion in February 2022.

PSG Holdings is certified by TQCS-Yaran to ISO 9001, ISO 14001 & AS 4801 for their integrated management system.

 

ISO 45001 is quickly being adopted by organisations throughout the world and TQCSI is already certifying clients. We expect it to also be adopted as an Australian/New Zealand Standard later this year, hopefully in 2018! However, only ISO certificates will be awarded by most Certification Bodies due to the confusion of Australian/New Zealand Standards often having different years of publication than the ISO Standards.

Following 29 days, 7 countries, 11 flights, 2 trains, 1 bus, 11 hotels (including the best and worst in Japan), 9 regional office visits, 1 week long audit and a 2 day auditor training course, The President and Mrs Bates returned home last week a little exhausted.

Regional Offices in Indonesia, Singapore, Oita Japan, Fukuoka Japan, Seoul Korea, Incheon Korea, Taiwan, China & Vietnam were visited and operational meetings held.

The President was also able to present the 2017 Awards for Regional Office of the Year to TQCSI (Singapore), Auditor of the Year to Hisanori Takayama of TQCSI (OCO) and Employee of the Year to Carol Chang of TQCSI (China).

 
 
ISO has released the final version of the ISO 22000:2018 Food Safety Management System Standard, replacing the 2005 version.

ISO has now published ISO 17021-10, Conformity assessment - Requirements for bodies providing audit and certification of management systems - Part 10: Competence requirements for auditing and certification of occupational health and safety management systems. This document explains the requirement for auditors of ISO 45001 OHS management systems.

 

TQCSI-Yaran is a majority Aboriginal-owned joint venture between TQCS International and Yaran Business Services Pty Ltd.

Today, TQCSI-Yaran has just been successfully certified by Supply Nation. This is a great milestone for TQCSI-Yaran, and will greatly assist in creating opportunities for Indigenous organisations through management system certification.

 

ISO 45001 PUBLISHED

At last! After decades of consultation and frustration, ISO 45001 was published 12 March 2018 as the first international OHS management system standard!

There will be a three year transition period but most companies will want to adopt the international standard sooner than later.

Standards Australia will now decide whether to adopt ISO 45001 and replace AS 4801, but don’t hold your breath! Unlike OHSAS 18001, which will be replaced by the new ISO 45001, Standards Australia is likely to procrastinate as it did with the 2015 versions of ISO 9001 & ISO 14001, with any resultant Australian standard being irrelevant to industry and only the ISO standard being used for certification.

 

NEW ISO 31000 VERSION

ISO 31000:2018, Risk Management, has now been published. ISO 31000:2018 provides more strategic guidance than ISO 31000:2009 and places more emphasis on both the involvement of senior management and the integration of risk management into the organization.
