We have a strong quality, integrity and social responsibility ethos, which is reflected in our published policies and standards.
We see following our policies and procedures as a consistent and systematic method of achieving our goals. Our policies guide us in how to go about our business, and they tell you, how we will work with you. We value working with organisations and people who have similar beliefs and attitudes toward quality, safety and business ethics.
Quality is one of our main values. We genuinely care about delivering work to the highest possible standards, with-in our ability at all times. If we don’t, we understand we won’t survive in business, but more than that we take pride in our work. If we take on a job, we believe it’s worth doing and worth doing to the best of our ability.
We manage our business using a Quality Management System (QMS). It’s accredited under ISO 9001:2008 (Certificate Number QEC27803) for the provision of advisory and training services to the aviation industry, and independently audited each year by the good folks at SAI Global. Our quality processes include:
The safety and health of our employees at ASSET is very important to me, the chief executive. I don’t want anyone to get hurt at work, or anywhere for that matter. We do difficult and at times risky work as ASSET, so I ensure that the company provides adequate resources and training to comply with workplace safety and health requirements and maintain occupational safety and health standards which conform to AS/NZS 4801.
Our safety policy is to:
ASSET recognises that directors, supervisors, and all other employees share responsibility for a safe workplace. Ultimately, management is accountable for providing a workplace which prevents injuries and illnesses, as best as we can. I consider all employee suggestions for achieving a safer, healthier workplace and keep abreast of workplace safety and health hazards. I review the company safety policy regularly, and ask my SMS students to do the same!
All employees have responsibility for their own safety as well as for the safety of their fellow workers. They are expected to participate in the safety and health program, which includes immediately reporting accidents, hazards, and unsafe work practices to a manager, wearing required personal protective equipment when in the field, and participating in and supporting safety committee activities. Together, we keep our people as safe as we can, so we can continue to work and live.
Mat Petrenko, CEO.
To us, sustainability means we protect the environment as best we can, we contribute to the local community and we develop our people so they are healthy, educated and productive.
This is how we work towards a sustainable business at ASSET Aviation:
PAST ENVIRONMENTAL GOALS
PAST COMMUNITY GOALS
PAST PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENTAL GOALS
Reporting, analysing and correcting incidents, accidents and error is an essential element of ASSET Aviation’s internal safety culture. All our staff must feel confident that they can disclose any such information without fear of retribution.
We endorse a “No Blame” incident, accident and error reporting culture at ASSET Aviation. Our vision is to develop and maintain a culture of mutual trust where we can confidently learn and understand the workings of the company, of our people and adopt a team approach to problem resolution when difficulties come our way.
While personal responsibility is an important part of the culture, so is a feeling of involvement and empowerment for employees so that they can contribute to safety and quality improvements consistently and continuously.
This is the approach we also take to our client work, to ensure the clients always receive the best advice possible and are able to improve their business in the most productive and positive way.
At ASSET Aviation, we support the United Nation’s Global Compact – because their values and ours are one in the same. We all live in one world and aviation makes that world smaller, so we need to protect it, this world, and to do that means to help ensure that human rights, global markets, commerce, health, technology and finance advance in ways that benefit economies and societies and communities everywhere.
We believe in the ten principles of the Global Compact, and the governments we deal with, businesses we work with, and clients we serve, no matter how big and powerful or how small, must also – or we won’t work with you. This is how we do our little bit to help.
