Safety Consultant or Safety Consultancy in Singapore

Safety consultants or Safety Consultancy (Safety Consultancy's) are Safety Professionals or Companies that have Safety Professionals who offer services to other companies. These Safety Consultants or Safety Consultancy are normally experts who are brought in from outside a company to provide advice and expertise about safety matters.

They provide valuable safety services for companies even if companies have their own Safety teams or Safety Professionals.

Services could range from providing Training (Training Needs Analysis, Developing Training, Delivering Training, Evaluating Training Effectiveness etc), providing Safety Management Services (Gab Analysis, designing and rolling out management systems, providing auditing or inspections)
