Keiran Frost. General Manager. Brandstand NZ Limited
Helping us build our health and safety best practice from the ground up we continue to value his input and guidance now and into the future.
I have had the pleasure of working with Sean McBride since 2012 across my previous business Orange Productions and more latterly at Brandstand NZ.
Sean has been and continues to be an invaluable resource in keeping our businesses up to date, compliant and above all safe through his support and guidance on all things health and safety.
He brings a great depth of experience, knowledge and real-world practicality to the day to day requirement of managing a dynamic and multi-faceted business.
A first-rate communicator confident in coaching at Director level, on the shop floor working with production or dealing with the public.
Richard Binns. Managing Director. RWB Communications Ltd.
As a small business owner, the obligations and regulations surrounding H&S can be a daunting subject to tackle. Sean has been great at helping me focus on the important stuff, making it user-friendly and easy to understand. I'd highly recommend anyone looking at workplace safety to have a chat with Sean at Salus.
Paul Fitzpatrick. Chief Executive. Auckland Heart Group
I feel confident that our organisation has the right tools, a sound understanding to manage our safety and health, and we have a virtual safety expert to assist throughout the year, who we can call on whenever necessary.
The new health and safety legislation signalled significant change. We needed to review our existing health and safety policy and procedures to ensure the business was meeting the new legal requirements. The Board of Directors and the executive team needed to be made aware of any new obligations.
Salus provided a comprehensive audit report which was an independent assessment of our current position and included recommendations to meet the new legal requirements and improvements to our practices. Salus updated our health and safety management system, provided legal and practical training for all our staff to ensure the new legal provisions and new procedures were understood.
We have retained Salus to provide ongoing support to ensure we maintain the gains already achieved and continue to improve.
Salus will also provide an annual audit report to the Board.
The service was personalised and pitched at the right level. The training was engaging and practical. Salus were great.
Vanessa MacDonald. G.M. Virbac NZ Ltd
We have retained Salus to provide ongoing support to ensure we maintain the gains already achieved and continue to improve. Salus will also provide an annual audit report to the Board.
As a multi-national Virbac is conscious of meeting its legal and social responsibilities. The new health and safety legislation signalled significant change in New Zealand and as a matter of course we used Salus to review our existing health and safety policy and procedures and ensure the business was meeting the new legal requirements. I was mindful that as officers, the directors I am part of, could now be held personally liable.
Salus reviewed our documentation, inspected the site for physical hazards and interviewed key staff. Salus provided a comprehensive audit report which was an independent assessment of our current position and included recommendations to meet the new legal requirements and improvements to our practices. It was important for the directors and senior executive to understand the practical implications of the legislation.
Salus updated our health and safety management system, provided legal and practical training for all our staff to ensure the new legal provisions and new procedures were understood.
Salus has now been working with us four years. The service is always personalised and responsive to our needs. We will continue to use Salus as our health and safety specialist.
As the G.M, and part of the Board of Directors of Virbac NZ Ltd, I am comfortable that our business is meeting our legal requirements and our staff have a sound understanding of the company’s legal obligations, and their individual duties under the same legislation.
