We make your working environment as safe as possible by carefully performing risk assessments and executing preventative measures. Through a range of international standards, we ensure that organizations have effective occupational health and safety systems in place to protect employees, generate customer confidence and enhance your business reputation.

Quality, health, safety and environment: SGS can help you care.

Occupational health and safety is a major consideration for successful businesses – the welfare and safety of your staff must be of paramount importance because, as the adage states, people are your most important asset. Plus, apart from looking after your own personnel directly, a good set of QHSE policies will also have a secondary effect: you may also protect co-workers, family members, employers, customers, suppliers, nearby communities, and other members of the public who are impacted by your workplace environment.

You will undoubtedly already have health and safety policies and procedures in place. But can you be sure that you are adhering to best practice? Are you complying with local, national and even international regulations? And if you think you are, can you prove it?

At SGS, we have solutions and answers. We can advise and train on a comprehensive range of quality, health, safety and environment issues. As the world’s leading inspection, certification, testing and verification company, we are fully familiar with local legislation – and international standards. Standards such as ISO 31000 and REACH. We can help you with occupational or industrial hygiene, your working environment with regard to air quality, dust, noise and vibration, technical due diligence and hazardous substances. And we are experts at environmental audits and economic and social sustainability.

Together, we can make a world of difference to your working world. Contact us now to find out what we could do for you.
