Quality Assurance

SFG is committed to ongoing Quality Assurance work practices.

Our quality assurance system conforms to the standard ISO9001 and establishes processes and procedures to ensure managed, ordered, and documented control of the design and delivery of every project.

SFG has a complete self-accredited quality assurance system. It includes operational and procedural manuals, checklists and responsibilities matrices. This allows process control procedures/work instructions to be documented and actioned.

As part of the SFG Quality System we also systematically audit our quality system annually.

Workplace Health & Safety Policy (WHS)

Workplace Health and Safety (WHS) is an integral part of the people management of any business.

We strive to conduct activities in a work environment that achieves the following:

  • protects the health, safety and welfare of all people affected by our workplace activities
  • actively encourages minimising risk in working practices, both at work and off the job
  • protect the community and the environment
  • provides quality products and services, which meet the needs of our customers.

It is a legal right for all employees to enjoy a safe workplace that complies with WHS legislation.
Effective WHS management will reduce workplace accidents, incidents and injuries.

Reconciliation Action Plan (RAP)

Our organisation’s Reconciliation Action Plan articulates how our staff, board and stakeholders will engage in reconciliation action and contribute to greater unity in the community we serve.

We seek to further strengthen our commitment to closing the gap between Indigenous and non-Indigenous Australians. We seek to affirm our commitment to reconciliation with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples, the oldest living culture in the world. We recognise Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples as the first inhabitants of Australia and respects their enduring connection to lands, skies, waters, plants and animals.

SFG commits to enabling Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples to contribute to and benefit from education, science, innovation and research. Wherever possible SFG looks to employ people from the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander community.

Domestic Violence

SFG recognises that domestic and family violence is serious and prevalent in the Australian community.

While anyone may experience domestic and family violence, research shows that the majority of victims are women and the majority of perpetrators are men.

SFG recognises that employees may be affected by domestic and family violence and this can have a significant impact on those experiencing it. Domestic and family violence may affect attendance or performance at work.

SFG recognises that domestic and family violence is fostered by a culture in which there is inequality between men and women and we are committed to addressing this including supporting employees affected by it.

Freedom of Association

SFG’s Freedom of Association Policy gives all employees the right to join or not join a union.
