News Spotlight How long is a piece of string? Competence in the workplace

‘Competence’ is a hazy concept. Many engineering firms now require that all contractors – on top of providing training and qualification records – evaluate the competency of all their staff. That’s a big ask, when competency seems like such a subjective asset. But, if done well, identifying required competencies for every role your people do can give employees a clear road-map of what’s expected of them, and an understanding of which of their talents are most valued.

Document Control

Document Control

At the heart of every project is the Document Control hub. An essential cog in the project Machine. One which must be established at the seedling stage of any venture. And it must work efficiently to allow other departments to function effectively.

QEM Solutions understand these requirements and provide specialist Document Controllers (and if necessary, processes), who have worked in a range of organisations. This means that they understand systems and processes, particularly the requirements of the organisations' Quality Management System.

Here are a few responsibilities QEM Solutions can provide;

  • Establishment and implementation of Document Control system best suited to the contract and the Client. This can range form simple office based systems to automatic online document collaboration software.
  • Collation of all documentation required for handover & commissioning packages. 
  • Document distribution, retention and collection where appropriate. 
  • Ensuring all superseded documents are retrieved or destroyed.
  • Correlation, indexing, preparation and review of the project Quality Records. 
  • Liaising with the Client on the status of document approval. 
  • Control of all Quality, Health & Safety and Environmental Management documentation.
  • Liaising with other project personnel to ensure all required documentation is submitted on time, is legible, properly identified and status is indicated.  
  • Liaising with the Sub-Contractors to ensure the efficient and timely submission of Quality documentation for review and approval. 
  • Liaising with the Construction Team to ensure access to all necessary documents at latest revision.

Benefits include;

  • Safer working practices by ensuring important information is channelled to who needs it when and where necessary. 
  • Contractual control of information transmittal and transfer.
  • Easier compilation of Databooks and H&S file in accordance with contract and CDM 2007 requirements.
