We have a strong work ethic and commitment to clients as well as their budgets, deadlines and teams. Over the past 3 years our focus has been as a consultants; assisting companies to adhere to the OHS Act and MHS Act within the South African legal framework and compliance with their clients requirements. This has also allowed us to cross over between SHEQ and HACCP, ISO 9000, ISO 1801 and a WHO (World Health Organization audit) we feel that this experience has been invaluable to our working knowledge within our industry.
