What our clients say

Our partnership with SafeAssure began about two and a half years ago off the back of a very strong recommendation from another construction company. SafeAssure worked with us to completely re develop our WH&S Manual. Not only is it now more user friendly and specific to our needs, but it was completed in a timely and cost-effective manner. The team at SafeAssure are always prompt, polite and extremely professional. Jon, your knowledge and willingness to assist is second to none!!

We engaged SafeAssure to conduct a comprehensive review of our safety management system, complete a gap analysis to transition to ISO45001, review our level of safety personnel resourcing, and to identify strategies to further embed a safety culture.  SafeAssure provided expert, practical and solutions focused recommendations for improvement.  SafeAssure’s recommendations have greatly assisted us in turning our safety culture around and improving our safety management system.

It is with much enthusiasm that I recommend the services of SafeAssure Pty Ltd. We initially appointed Gareth Davies of SafeAssure to update our Work Health and Safety Management Plan (WHSMP) to be compliant with national regulations and to provide training to our staff. Such was our satisfaction in dealing with Gareth, we further contracted SafeAssure to conduct site audits to ensure our sites were compliant with our WHSMP. Both Gareth and his consultants have carried out audits and all have added value to our business integrating Health and Safety with our operational requirements. We continue to utilise SafeAssure’s services and I am happy to recommend them as a competent and competitive WHS consulting firm.

MWH Constructions has utilised the ResiSafe program provided by SafeAssure for almost five years. It has seen our site compliance and the compliance of our contractor trades increase significantly. Having an easy to follow, simple, yet thorough safety plan for our sites is exactly what we needed. SafeAssure have also continued to support us with inspections, phone advice, toolbox meetings and overall safety mentoring. The value of SafeAssure's ResiSafe program was reiterated to me when we received a clean bill of health from Workplace Health and Safety Inspectors for our site and documentation when multiple builders in the area received Improvement Notices and on the spot fines. I would recommend SafeAssure and their services to any residential builders as Gareth and the team have practical experience and understand what it takes to be in the construction industry at all levels.

Thomas Foods International Australia recently used SafeAssure to assist our Coffs Harbour, NSW facility in preparing to achieve self-insurance. SafeAssure were able to find a suitable candidate quickly who was well qualified to assist us, having recently completed the project we have been very happy with the outcome both in terms of meeting deadlines and in a cost effective manner. I would recommend Safe Assure as a business partner in assisting on such projects.

We engaged SafeAssure to help us overhaul and develop our safety procedures into a stronger, simpler system to achieve a safer working environment for everyone working here at Parker Carpentry. The whole process from start to finish has been very professional, detailed and prompt. I wouldn’t hesitate recommending SafeAssure to any other construction company looking for the same services

SafeAssure has been providing WHS services to us on a consultancy basis. Our partnership began as a fixed appointment to review our WHS compliance against internal and external criteria and legislation. Following this review, we further appointed SafeAssure to develop a WHS Management System to ensure our future compliance applicable to our commercial construction business. We found the work produced by SafeAssure to be of a high level and felt confident and comfortable with the efforts made to consult and include stakeholders in the process through workshops with senior management and site management. It is a testament to the professionalism and dedication of the team at SafeAssure that we entered into a continuing arrangement of ongoing support which includes consulting, training and auditing. SafeAssure was able to ensure that our needs were met, our compliance goals were achieved and our projects were able to simply implement the systems presented. Therefore, it is without reservation that I offer my recommendation to you for the services conducted by SafeAssure.

Gareth Davies headed up ‘Safety’ at Hutchinson Builders for a period of 3 years to September, 2014. He is a highly qualified and capable health and safety professional with experience and knowledge that covers almost every facet of the building and construction industry. His expertise extends from an in depth thorough knowledge of relevant statute and regulations in each State and Territory, relevant Standards, Codes of Practice and systems auditing to specific on-site project auditing, incident investigations and workforce rehabilitation, which extends into workers’ compensation and insurance. Since leaving Hutchinson Builders, Gareth has established SafeAssure, which is now a well-respected Safety Consultancy business in the building and construction industry. Hutchinson engages SafeAssure regularly to provide advice and independent consultancy services across all segments of our operations. I would recommend Gareth Davies and SafeAssure to Developers, Builders and Subcontractors in both the construction and civil sectors, as well as Health and Safety and Workers’ Compensation Regulators across Australia.
