Our work, our world

At SAGE Automation, we integrate all of our systems and processes across health, safety, environment and quality with an Integrated Management System (IMS). This helps us to work as a single unit, with unified objectives and a strong, aligned culture. 

The IMS documentation covers all the elements for the 3 standards AS/NZS 4801, ISO 14001 and ISO 9001 as well as legislative requirements for both Workplace Health & Safety and Environment.

SAGE’s HSEQ vision is set out in the following Policy:


Workplace Health and Safety

SAGE Automation works to a zero-harm-to-people objective, and to support this, we are certified to AS/NZS 4801:2001 Occupational Health & Safety Management Systems by DQS Certification. 

Leadership has implemented a proactive, preventative approach to workplace health and safety, where safety is a shared responsibility. 

Here are some of the ways we ensure safety for our teams: 

  • Staff fully understand safety requirements and the HSEQ Policy through comprehensive corporate and site-specific inductions.
  • Contractors are pre-qualified and sign in on arrival.
  • Prior to the start of any job, a Job Safety and Environmental Analysis (JSEA) is completed.

We educate all employees and contractors on the Hazard Reporting System, which is recorded on the Workplace Hazard Register. In addition, we report lessons learned from incidents and hazards through email safety alerts, noticeboards and tool-box meetings. 

Safety consultation and communication happens during scheduled meetings. 

  • Tool-box meetings are held regularly and deal with HSEQ matters at an operational level on a day to day basis.
  • IMS Committee meetings are for dealing with HSEQ matters at a system level.

Importantly, at SAGE we ensure our employees are suitably trained and supervised to ensure the delivery of high-quality work is undertaken safely.



Environmental and Sustainability Management

SAGE is certified to ISO 14001:2004 Environmental Management Systems by DQS Certification and has been since August 2010. SAGE is committed to operating an environmentally sustainable business and we meet our clients’ needs while minimising any adverse environmental impacts.

At SAGE, we actively monitors our carbon emissions. All resource usage is measured, monitored and displayed for all to see using this system.

The primary aim of this data collection is to understand, then reduce resource usage as well as improve the efficiency,  thereby minimising our impact on the environment.  SAGE leads by example and we share learnings with our clients.

SAGE has achieved Zero Waste to landfill at its SA operations by sending all mixed waste to an alternate fuel facility. Improvements can still be made by ensuring our overall waste is minimised and that all waste that is generated is separated into streams that can be reused or recycled. This ensures that SAGE has the minimum possible environmental impact from its operations.


Quality Management

SAGE is certified to ISO 9001:2008 Quality Management Systems by DQS Certification. SAGE has been certified to ISO 9001 since 1997.

Our vision is to be a world leader in industrial control, automation systems, specialist training and consulting services for a diverse range of industries. As a result, we relentlessly pursue innovation, improvement, and excellence in delivery. 

SAGE is also the only certified member of the Control System Integrators Association (CSIA) in Australia. CSIA’s Best Practice and Benchmark certification covers all automation business processes including finance, sales, marketing, project execution, technical execution and quality assurance. 

All our internal business delivery systems are designed to meet benchmarks representing the best practices of international control system integrators.

SAGE has additionally achieved supplier certification, meeting rigorous pre-qualification audits, with these leading supplier management organisations: Achilles, ISNetworld, CM3.
