Quality, Health, Safety & Environment
We conduct our operations to ensure our people work together and take responsibility for the health and safety of ourselves and others, to minimize our impact on the environment and ensure the best quality in products and services.
DSTI's outstanding safety record is an outcome of wide-ranging and proactive safety procedures managed by a team of quality and safety professionals.
Safe operating procedures and strict safety rules have been established from a thorough knowledge of company operations and the hazards these may pose. New hazards are identified through task risk assessments, job hazard analysis, inspections, consultation with safety experts, and employee reporting.
Our international ISO 9001:2015 management system demonstrates strictly applied standards with an innovative approach to continuous improvement.
A variety of audits of our quality management system are undertaken, including internal audits and external audits by customers or certified third parties. These audits determine the effectiveness of the quality management system, its fitness for purpose, the level of compliance with the quality management system and any opportunities for improvement.
