QHSE

Pumps United is committed to delivering the highest standards of Quality, Health, Safety and Environmental Management both within our business and for our customers. 

Our objective is to ensure our activities go beyond the minimum statutory regulations.

At Pumps United we know that this will only be achieved by adopting an industry leading approach, consistently reviewing our working practices and ensuring our people and sub-contractors are committed to promoting best practice procedures.

Fostering a robust and responsive QHSE culture is a critical part of our obligation to our employees, our customers, and the communities in which we operate. From our executive team through to our employees on site, we are committed to driving continuous improvement in our QHSE management system. It’s an intuitive part of our culture and our network of specialists ensures we can respond quickly to project demands and partner with our customers to provide industry leading QHSE management.

Quality

Service, Equipment, Systems and People are the core of Pumps United’s management system, which has now been in operation for the past five years.

At Pumps United we understand that quality management is key to achieving increased productivity, customer satisfaction, increased effectiveness, maximum output and quality control. Ensuring that our products and service delivery is ahead of our competition requires continual improvements and adopting an ‘outside of the box’ approach to challenges and industry changes as they arise.

Pumps United safety systems are in full compliance with Federal, National, State and Local Workplace Health and Safety legislation requirements.

All direct employees and sub-contractors engaged on a Pumps United project are fully engaged in our quality systems and are made aware of their responsibilities through company and project inductions, toolbox meetings, Safe Work Method Statements (SWMS’s) and Job Safety Assessments (JSA’s).

Quality, Safety and Environmental audits are conducted at Pumps United workplaces and several third-party audits have produced positive results.

Our continuous improvement strategy is aimed at identifying and employing water management practices that will add to the quality, safety and environmental longevity of our projects. 

Health and Safety

Health and safety is Pumps United’s foremost priority. 

We strive to ensure that every person who enters a Pumps United work site returns home safely to their families at the end of each day.

In recognition that workplace safety is more than rules and regulations, Pumps United has worked hard to instil a positive behavioural safety culture in its work place.

Our safety procedures and policies promote a culture where safety is the first thought before undertaking any task.

Our commitment to ongoing training provides our team with the best tool possible for safety management - knowledge. This approach is designed to ensure everyone at Pumps United assumes personal accountability for safe practices.
