Safe Working Practice is revolutionising the health and safety industry, and offering excellent opportunities for growth.

With more than 10 years of experience in the health and safety industry, Safe Working Practice SA is a BEE Level 2 contributor with 14 franchises, 3 head office owned branches and an overall staff compliment of approximately 140. Also, with 12,000+ safety audits done per year, they are a market leader in health and safety in South Africa.

While at first operating mainly in the construction industry, Safe Working Practice has embraced growth opportunities and have expanded into the manufacturing, production and agriculture industries, as well as education. In the face of changing legislation, health and safety compliance is a long-term reality and a vital statutory consideration in every type of business, regardless of the industry.

Health and safety for the digital age

To bring health and safety into the electronical age, and to counter the challenges of growth, Director Chris Oosthuizen developed an Electronic Safety Management system that is revolutionising the industry; branded as i-Manage Safety.

I-Manage safety system ensures that clients are always legally compliant, and at the same time enhances operational fluidity and in turn adds to excellent productivity. Results can be tracked on the system dashboard.

The i-Manage Safety management system offers a great income opportunity for franchisees, who automatically qualify to become licenced agents. i-Manage Safety was developed in line with ISO 45001. The system is fully customisable; while it is powerful enough for use in multi-national companies with remote branches, it can just as easily be modified for a single user. The system has been applied with great success in the construction, agricultural, educational, manufacturing and retail industries.
