Contact us now for advice from top health and safety consultants. We will answer your questions and give the correct advice for you to move forward in health and safety.

If you are concerned about the health and safety of your employees and sub-contractors, and would like to feel confident during a visit by the Department of Labour or ACC, then a Health and Safety management system is your best solution.

We can assist with the development of safety manuals, procedures, plans and forms to exceed legislative requirements and help the business avail of discounts of up to 20% in their ACC levies. Please discuss these discounts and the conditions to achieve with one of our consultants.

ACC Workplace Safety Management Practices (WSMP)
Aimed at medium and large employers, the ACC Workplace Safety Management Practices programme rewards employers who build safer workplaces. In exchange for putting in place systems and processes that promote injury prevention, the programme gives employers discounts on their standard ACC WorkPlace Cover levies of between 10 & 20%.
