Features & Benefits of the Verbena Systems

Main Menu


The VERBENA Workplace Health & Safety Management Programs provide a practical, no nonsense approach to managing you company's Safety Obligations.

The Systems are formally structured, auditable and specifically referenced and linked to the Legislation. This makes them relevant to literally any organisation regardless of size, type of industry or activity.  

Their formal structure means that they can be used as a stand alone Safety Management System or easily merged into or annexed to any Quality Assurance System that you may have.

Explanatory and reference information, from the relevant sections of Legislation or Codes of Practice etc, is hyper-linked to each element of the systems so as to explain the reasons for the element and enable you to decide whether or not a particular element is relevant to your business & needs to be addressed.
