What Companies are Saying:

Charlie impressed us with how they audited and conducted a full risk assessment on all our machinery and tools and providing us with the inherent risk calculation, recommended controls and residual controls, they generated finding reports followed by a completed and well-presented safety system. 

Charlie was easy to work with, has good knowledge of requirements for machinery and is very approachable for clarification of terms and processes. With one of our machines he offered several options and worked with us and Work Safe NZ for a practical and safe outcome.

Charlie came to my workshop and audited all practices and machinery and produced a clear, user friendly and comprehensive risk assessment report along with a 
set of Health and Safety manuals and policies relevant to my workplace.

Charlie’s support provided is excellent, the risk assessments and action plans are detailed and specific to the nature of our organization. The policies produced on our behalf have been localized for us along with detailed risk assessment on all our machinery and noise assessments
