Quality, Health, Safety & Environment (QHSE)
Van Meer operates according to an established management system for Quality, Health, Safety and the Environment (QHSE). Our complete business process forms the basis of this system with standards such as NEN-EN-ISO 9001:2015, SCC (2008/5.1) and NEN-EN-IEC 60079-19:2011 also incorporated. Attention to Quality, Health, Safety & Environment (QHSE) is an attitude that we as a company integrate in all our services, also in our customer service. All procedures are standardised and implemented according to the awarded certification. This general philosophy is converted by the management and supervisory staff into annual proposals for improvement that are included in an action list during the annual management assessment and followed up by the QHSE Manager.
Quality assurance system
Quality is an absolute policy priority at Van Meer. To us quality means satisfying the requirements and desires of the customer by means of efficient work processes and effective organisation and planning. The starting point for all aspects of the business operations is: “it can always be done better”, including by:
- Technical expertise
- Insightful and transparent organisation
- Quality awareness among all employees
- Compliance with arrangements
- Effective improvement management
We gauge the effectiveness of our management system by means of internal audits, customer satisfaction surveys, quality improvement reports and project evaluation.
Work & the environment
Besides quality we devote much attention to working conditions and the environment, two components that are inextricably bound to the quality of the whole organisation. This means that everyone takes responsibility for occupational health and safety and the environment, and each individual makes the prevention of accidents, incidents and damage to production and the environment a priority. Everyone’s safety must be guaranteed, including that of our suppliers and subcontractors. We achieve this by fully informing them about our company activities and work methods.
Van Meer attaches importance to all employees having sufficient and clear information, facilities and resources to result in a higher level of safety, health, welfare and less absence due to illness. The ultimate aim is to ensure continuous improvement.
