SCOPE The purpose of this manual is to outline the principles of the Quality Assurance and Quality Control System to be implemented during GALVANIZING and Civil. The components essential for quality assurance are shown schematically below: QUALITY SYSTEM A set of established manufacturing procedures and rules. This implies that all personnel involved. the aim of which is to assure that a product.g. inspection and testing during the construction process. contribute to this objective. process or service (including meet the requirement and quality SUPPLIERS ASSESSMENT Assessment by the supplier using his own quality system based on acceptable standards. objectives management) QUALITY CONTROL The operational techniques and activities necessary to maintain the quality required for the end product. and also to summarize the activities involved.0. The philosophy of quality assurance and control is directed towards continous assurance of quality achieved by constant control. e. BS2004.
Fitzau implements a documented procedure system to ensure that: Execution and Quality Control procedures are suitably drawn up in order to meet the Construction / Galvanizing Quality requirements. 2. Therefore. Specified activities are verified according to relevant Quality Control procedures. Civil & Maintenace It is the primary aim of FITZAU that all equipment used for projects (galvanizing) will be properly checked and certified by a reputable inspection service company. in compliance with the Contract Documents.0. Latest issues of applicable drawings and documents are used at all stages of the construction / galvanizing and obsolete drawings and documents are withdrawn. meeting agreed client quality requirements. Activities are performed according to relevant execution procedures. GENERAL QUALITY ASSURANCE AND QUALITY CONTROL POLICY It is the policy of Fitzau to execute its operations at all times to international standards. Execution and Quality Control procedures are made available to the relevant recipients.FITZAU LIMITED Turnkey site builders. Responsibility for each control task is clearly identified. 4 .
Verification are recorded in the specified manner. Issues which are considered for a project include: Control of engineering documents. - Control of the quality identification of incoming materials. - Control and interfere between disciplines and between Contractor and Subcontractors (if any). QUALITY ASSURANCE AND CONTROL RESPONSIBILITIES In general.0. including review. - Review and submission of proposed changes to the design. accessibility and update. - Control of non-conforming materials. with project activities being monitored by the Project Manager who ensures that all works are executed according to Contract Specifications and requirements. - Preparation and distribution of construction plan and work procedures. distribution. in such a way that no stage can be started without the previous one having been verified. 3. storage. 5 . - Surveillance and control of work processes. Quality Assurance and Quality Control (QA/QC) is under the responsibility of the Design and Contracts Department under the Department Head. Civil & Maintenace Defined verification are made at stages of the construction / galvanizing .FITZAU LIMITED Turnkey site builders.
- Control of reports (e. - Reviewing. inspection and tests). 6 . - Planning and performing quality audits.g. compiling and Quality Control records into a suitable construction Quality Control file. headed by Fitzau QA/QC Manager. - Verifying its application - Verifying that the specified requirements are met. who in addition to ensuring that the provisions described in Section 2. QA will function as an independent unit. including inspection and communication between personnel involved in quality and those involved in material control and construction / galvanizing. - Ensure the site work is carried out under safe conditions.0 above are implemented and will be responsible for: - Establishing and maintaining the construction / galvanizing Quality System. It is therefore important that QA/QC is implemented with a thorough training and upkeeping of the qualifications of personnel. - Implementing or monitoring the implementation of the actions and controls necessary to ensure the efficiency of the Quality system.FITZAU LIMITED Turnkey site builders. Civil & Maintenace - Control of quality. - Reporting regularly to responsible Management on the effectiveness of the Quality system.

QUALITY CONTROL -------. Time: Our system of operation is such that we work under or the time frame stipulated / agreed between us and the client. Cost: This is also considered to control and guide the cost of the project to achieve the best result for the galvanized items. 3. Quality Control and Assurance procedures adopted for Galvanizing are: 1.GALVANIZING Three important factors are put into consideration during the process of galvanizing and as well as management of sub-contractors. Most times we advance payment to subcontractors so that issues of delay due to lack of funds can be eliminated.FITZAU LIMITED Turnkey site builders.
