About us Managing risks

Managing risks

The Inter­na­tion­al Stan­dards that we apply to all our work use is the Plan-Do-Check-Act (PDCA) cycle and risk-based think­ing. Using this approach ensures that we can see oppor­tu­ni­ties for improve­ment as soon as they arise and act on them quick­ly, keep­ing our work con­sis­tent­ly at the high­est stan­dard possible. 

Risk-based think­ing means that we can pin­point fac­tors that could cause our process­es and qual­i­ty man­age­ment sys­tems to dif­fer from the intend­ed results. Using risk-based think­ing to put in place pre­ven­tive con­trols to min­i­mize neg­a­tive effects and to make max­i­mum use of oppor­tu­ni­ties as they arise.

Man­ag­ing risks is a key part of oper­at­ing in the con­struc­tion indus­try. We ensure the design and con­struc­tion process is planned and con­trolled for all projects under­tak­en by the com­pa­ny using tech­ni­cal pro­ce­dures for crit­i­cal tasks.

Tools we use to man­age risks and ensure qual­i­ty include:

  • SWMS
  • Tech­ni­cal Procedures 
  • Work Instruc­tions
  • Job Safe­ty Analy­sis and 
  • Ver­i­fi­ca­tion Checklists

We have a sys­tem­at­ic man­age­ment of projects, from ten­der, design, doc­u­men­ta­tion, con­struc­tion, com­ple­tion through to project close-out and han­dover.
To assist in man­ag­ing the company’s com­pli­ance with the WHS Act, Har­vey Devel­op­ments employs a qual­i­fied Com­pli­ance Manager.
