Health and Safety Consulting for Your Business
Many business owners are under the impression that their business standards regarding aspects such as health and safety are up to par with the rest of the world. Quality control over manufactured products in South Africa are standardised by the SABS (South African Bureau of Standards). When a product has their seal of approval on it, a customer has the peace of mind to buy that product. A similar concept applies to businesses that are ISO-compliant regarding health and safety. The SABS is the South African representative of ISO – the International Organisation of Standardisation. We offer ISO consulting, training, and implementation for your business to standardise operations for a more efficient outcome.
