QMS & HSE Certifications

OUR QUALITY MANAGEMENT SYSTEM

Sharpe Engineering is systems driven and quality focused.

We are committed to providing first class quality products and services that meet or exceed customer expectations using an effective management system, operational controls, continual improvements and active employee involvement.

Our Quality Management System (QMS) is third party certified to the oil and gas industry’s highest standards that guarantees consistent products and services meeting customer requirements and conforming to API Q1, API 7-1, API 5-CT, API 6A, API 16A and ISO 9001:2015.

At Sharpe™, we believe that an effective QMS is critical to meeting our customer’s needs. It provides a framework to ensure continued success and improvement of Sharpe Engineering and a framework for all operational policies, procedures and operational requirements.

Our quality system also assesses customer satisfaction with a process for continual improvement.

Sharpe’s Quality Management Team constantly plans, implements, evaluates and improves our operations and ensures that all team members take an active role in executing the QMS.

We believe in product and service excellence and ensuring that our clients are never disappointed. Our QMS ensures our products and services:

  • Comply with customer requirements;
  • Meet relevant industry standards (such as API, ASME);
  • Comply with legal requirements.

All workshop manufacture, repair and servicing works are undertaken with an approved documented “traveller” job file. Each job is assigned a serial number detailing full material traceability and inspection.

The end of job reporting is collaborated by our production team. This ‘Certificate of Conformance’ details every aspect of the product or service delivered with all quality documentation fully traceable for future years via our Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) system. Delivery documentation varies job-to-job, typical documentation includes:

  • Mill/material test certificates;
  • Third-party reports, including NDE Reports or any applicable engineering certificates;
  • Inspection and test reports as applicable.

With our quality certificates in place – all projects and staff at Sharpe are systems driven and procedure focused. Sharpe™ has invested heavily in a suitable ERP system and adopted an all-encompassing system in 2008. The ERP manage enquiries, purchasing, call management (internal & external), production, accounts, invoicing, payroll and has a scheduling feature to schedule and track customer jobs in real-time. Recording this data enables us to monitor and improve our ‘delivered in full on time‘ track record. Sharpe’s ERP system is continually monitored as part of our QMS.

All Sharpe and third-party proprietary gauges are stored in a temperature-controlled room. Gauges are managed, calibrated and inspected by our Quality team.

As some gauges are licensed property of patented threads and hold confidential IP (Intellectual Property), the lab is secure at all times. We hold a growing list of premium license connections for drill pipe and casing.

The following equipment is securely stored in the lab:

  • Mic-Trac MT3000 and calibration program used to calibrate measuring equipment;
