Why Safety Insights is Different

Proven capability and real industry experience.

There are many safety consultants out there, but look closely, you find most lack higher qualifications and relevant industry experience, many come from an unrelated field, low-risk industry or are selling a product. This lack of capability, can create problems you didn’t have; process you don’t need or can’t use and sometimes evidence a regulator can use against you, all costing you big, but doing little about tangible risks. The wrong advice can increase the risk in high risk industrial workplaces.

Now compare Credentials & Experience (see left of screen and LinkedIn). You need this proven and trusted capability to solve complex problems, manage critical risks and to deal with the working end of safety laws.

Personal service, supported by expert partners when needed   

No junior consultants, no receptionist, you are always dealing directly, a phone call away anytime with free advice for clients. For large / multi-disciplined work; Wayne can partner with the best from an extensive network; all experienced engineers, scientists, medical professionals, lawyers or certifying bodies.

Lower costs

Safety Insights does not employ consultants, sell products, or have overheads e.g. offices, staff etc. keeping fees lower than less experienced consultants in bigger firms. Also big discounts to help other small Australian businesses.

Can hit the ground running

Extensive industry experience means, no learning on your job, you don’t have to hold the consultants hand, explain every detail, teach how things work etc. It means getting in, working with your people and getting the job done quickly and effectively.
