Randridge Quality Management System
Definition of the QMS
The QMS is defined in two parts – through its objectives, and the main components for achieving these objectives.
- Customer focus – actively reviewing customer needs through dialogue; ensuring we are always aware of our customer's needs
- Continual improvement – of products, services, working environment, staff development, management and production processes
- Reduced waste – a reduction in wasted products, repeated or corrective work and unnecessary processes
- The active and positive commitment of our senior management
- Simple, efficient monitoring systems that enable all levels of management to identify bottlenecks and waste
- Staff development that provides the correct level of competence for each job, and provides staff with opportunities to progress
Aim of the QMS
The aim of the QMS is to ensure that all contractual and client specification requirements are met with minimum wastage, rework or concessions, thereby achieving a reliable, cost effective system of management. The Randridge company-wide continuous improvement effort focuses on problem solving and providing the highest level of quality. Instead of lessening problems, we focus on getting rid of them altogether.
Who is Responsible for Quality?
At Randridge, we believe that quality is the responsibility of each employee and therefore we ensure that the quality policy is communicated to all employees through its inclusion in the induction programme for new employees.

- Ensured the availability of resources and information necessary to support the operation and monitoring of these processes
- Established systems to monitor, measure and analyse these processes
- Established processes to identify and implement actions necessary to achieve planned results and continual improvement of these processes
