ASC has a world-class quality assurance capability that supports its commitment to consistently fulfill or exceed customer expectations. A focus on quality is embedded throughout ASC’s workforce and supply chain.
ASC is the first Australian defence company to be accredited to international standard ISO 55001, which recognises best practice in the management of complex assets. ASC’s internationally recognised certifications ensure it manages risks effectively and maintains quality outcomes.
Work Health AND Safety
ASC is committed to preserving its workers’ health and safety. Ensuring every employee returns home safely each day is ASC’s highest priority, and is a responsibility shared by each member of its workforce.
ASC’s strong safety culture is a pillar of the organisation, which it works hard to maintain and develop. ASC embeds health and safety in the awareness and actions of all employees. It invests in its workforce’s health and wellbeing through initiatives such as onsite skin cancer screening, onsite mental health first aiders and an Employee Assistance Program.
ASC has an excellent record of managing environmental risks and ensures environmental sustainability is integrated throughout its business. ASC maintains very high levels of waste diversion. Regular environmental risk assessments of its major activities confirm excellent adherence to process.
ASC’s operations are regulated under both state and federal environmental legislation, and its Environmental Management System is certified to ISO14001:2015. All employees have access to ‘Environment Essentials’, an online directory for environment and safety legislation that provides clear, comprehensive summaries of ASC’s legal obligations.
Digital Transformation Program
ASC’s Digital Transformation Program is laying the foundation for its digital shipyard transition.
The program was launched in May 2021 and will facilitate more streamlined processes, enhance integration between systems and expand the use of real-time data to support decision-making. It is critical to ensure ASC embraces cutting-edge technologies that meet the needs of the Royal Australian Navy into the future, as the company continues to deliver outstanding availability and performance of the Collins Class submarine fleet.
