A note from Chris Pienaar, Executive Director of iSTEC Safety
It is indeed a pleasure to introduce our company to you.
During the past decade, existing safety systems world-wide have undergone many changes - most of these changes occurred in the field of Occupational Health and Safety. Although it has been claimed in the past that these Occupational Health and Safety systems were strongly risk-based they focused mostly on injuries, and not processes and organizational safety, in reality, it has always been confined to the client company doing his or her own hazard identification and risk assessments.

- Comprehensive Business Continuity programmes
- Incorporating Risk Management Techniques for Hazard Identification and Risk Assessments
