We provide you with an extensive Quality Assurance, Health & Safety and Environment (QHSE) analysis (sometimes referred to as SHEQ, HESQ or EHSQ, according to which disciplines are considered most material to your business). We help you monitor, record and analyse the risks your company faces, while putting procedures in place to reduce the risk of harm, non-conformance and environmental impact.

What we provide:

  • Create monthly report templates & accident/incident reports

  • Establish QHSE Direction

  • Implementation, monitoring & revising of Integrated Business Management systems

  • Incident investigations

  • Introduce departmental integration

  • Management system audit preparation & audits

  • Policy and procedural compliance

Case Study.

We carried out consultancy work for a Subsea pipeline, inspection and intervention services firm, with bases in the UK, Malaysia and Egypt. The firm was looking for an experienced company capable of providing it with high-quality support on a call-off basis, as it grows its global operations.


We provided support in the areas of QHSE and project management. We allowed the client to roll the contract and release individuals immediately if required, giving the company optimum access and flexibility, with minimum exposure. We have developed a strong, sustainable relationship with the leadership team and the firm has also been able to benefit from our market intelligence services.
