Ichor are Quality (QA: ISO 9001:2008), Safety (OHS: AS/NZS 4801:2001) and Environment (EMS: ISO 14001:2004) certified. We are committed to delivering quality projects and maintaining the highest level of safety and consciously managing our environmental impact.
The internal quality procedures at Ichor have been developed and honed over many years and they have been shaped by the delivery and learning opportunities presented by our completed projects. These processes are the foundation of our fully certified Quality Assurance Management System (ISO 9001:2000) which has become an integral part of our fully Integrated Management System.
The safety of our team, clients, consultants, subcontractors and the greater community, on and off site, is always top of mind at Ichor. We have a certified Occupational Health and Safety Management System in place, certified to AS/NZS 4801:2001, as part of our Integrated Management System. Ichor's commitment to safety is genuine and has resulted in no prosecutions or fines relating to safety management.
Ichor are aware that our growing business have an equally growing impact on the environment. The construction and demolition industries generate over one third of all waste going to landfill. Over 75% of this waste is clean excavated material, concrete, bricks and timber. At Ichor, we use our certified Environmental Management System (EMS: ISO 14001:2004) to manage the unique environmental aspects and challenges of every project with the aim to minimise waste through recycling and reuse. Not just within our sites, this practise also extends in our office where we utilise recycled printing paper, bio-renewable printing ink and collate all our waste for recycling. We prefer to work with suppliers and providers who are in line with our environmental approach and beliefs.
In addition to this, we have Green Star Accredited Professionals on staff and we are an active participant of the Green Building Council Australia.
Our accreditations are a big part of who we are at Ichor, the concepts of quality, safety and environmental responsibility are deeply ingrained within our values and in our culture.
