Environment health and safety software for the government sector
Intelex understands that, for municipalities, few responsibilities rank higher in importance than the provision of safe, clean drinking water to all the residents and businesses it serves. That’s why we’ve developed solutions that map to specific drinking water quality management standards (e.g. DWQMS, Clean Water Act, etc.), making complete, up-to-date compliance with all legal and regulatory drinking water quality standards effortless for any municipal organization, regardless of size and scope.
Intelex’s Drinking Water Quality Management System solutions are entirely web-based, and ensure the highest level of drinking water quality by addressing all elements of a comprehensive drinking water QMS, including document control, task assignment, nonconformances and corrective / preventive actions. Our intuitive, user-friendly software provides a real-time, bird’s eye view of quality performance across all water treatment plants and facilities, right up to a municipalities environmental management department and executive management team.
Key Components and Functionality:
Document and Records Control
Maintain a centralized, audit-ready repository of all documents used across your organization that is easily accessed by all employees at all locations. Centralize and access all documents related to drinking water QMS management, including:
- Drinking water system descriptions.

Legal Compliance, ISO 14001 and ISO 9001
Public sector organizations around the world are beholden to the laws and regulations defined by state, regional, provincial and national governments. To ensure sustained compliance with regulations as well as the highest level of environmental, health, safety and quality performance, these organizations also often seek certification with widely adopted management standards. There is no better way to ensure the highest level of sustained compliance with all regulatory and legal requirements, as well as sustained conformance to standards-based frameworks than to implement an Intelex management system. Our solutions were designed to map directly to the world’s leading standards specifications: ISO 9001 for quality management, and ISO 14001 for environmental management.
Drinking Water Quality Management
As governments strive to avoid the devastating and life-threatening effects of drinking water compromised by dangerous bacteria and other contaminants, regulations affecting drinking water quality management have become pervasive across North America and around the world. We have developed solutions that simplify compliance with drinking water quality standards. Though drinking water quality management standards vary from region to region, most are designed to ensure procedures carried out within water treatment facilities and across all city-run locations are deeply rooted in complete, sustained drinking water safety and quality. Intelex’s drinking water quality management systems make it easy to comply with all drinking water requirements (e.g. DWQMS in Ontario, Clean Water Act in U.S., etc.) and provide the highest quality of drinking water.
