A Word from the Managing Director
Safe Working Practice specialises in addressing Health and Safety issues affecting the construction and road work industries in particular, but we also service other sectors including wholesale and retail offices, warehouses, transporters, farmers, franchises, educational institutions, golf courses, restaurants and wine estates. Our staff and franchisees are professional, motivated and qualified to assist with every Health and Safety requirement.
Safe Working Practice is a BEE Level 2 contributor with more than 10 years of experience in the Health and Safety industry. We have 17 branches with an overall staff compliment of approximately 120 employees, doing 12,000+ safety audits per year, making us an industry leader in South Africa.
Our vision is to provide a cost effective and professional Health and Safety advisory service with a strong emphasis on quality and client satisfaction. We believe that we can make a difference in people’s attitude towards health and safety by providing a comprehensive safety management system. We strive to reduce the number of preventable fatalities and disabling injuries in the workplace.
Safe Working Practice enjoys an excellent reputation in the Health and Safety industry through consistent service excellence and quality.
For the 10th anniversary, Safe Working Practice launched our Electronic Safety Management system, making us the only Health and Safety consultancy that can offer an electronic safety solution backed by the knowledge and experience of safety professionals who will guide you throughout the onboarding process. i-Manage Compliance was developed in line with ISO 45001 (Occupational Health & Safety), a complete electronic safety solution to address all needs for Health and Safety. The system allows any company, however big or small, to take full control of all aspects of their Health and Safety system, in real-time, from anywhere in the world. i-Manage Compliance is fully customisable, it is not an “off the shelf” product. The user can decide which modules to use, and the Safety Management System is built within its framework.
Imagine a world where companies can use automated drones to deliver packages, survey traffic, count game on farms, monitor poachers and even identify illnesses in crops. Imagine a world where you almost never have to go in to the bank or post office, because you can do your banking and communications online. For the most part, you don’t have to imagine, because all of this is technically already happening – at least to some extent.
Our experience, however, is that most industries are still very far behind when it comes to technology, as very few technological management systems add any actual value to business processes and Health and Safety legislation to most companies is just an inconvenience and paper exercise.
Real Experts, Real Solutions
Throughout history, there have been four major industrial revolutions. First there was steam, then there was electricity, which led us to the development of computers, and NOW we have cloud computing and the world at our fingertips.
The fourth industrial revolution, the digital revolution, is all about connecting the world and ease of access to information.
Most people have access to the internet, at least one social media account, a mobile number and an email address, if not multiple. Some businesses are even able to run all of their operations on a single smartphone, laptop or tablet. Eventually, more and more businesses will attempt to make the switch to digital management of business processes.
For larger companies to make the same change, they have to be able to manage all aspects of their business electronically, including Health and Safety. It was for this reason that i-Manage Compliance was developed.
