I have 24 years of experience in the business of SHEQ in both, the private and public sectors. I am a certified ISO Auditor with a robust understanding of the following standards Quality, Environment and Health & Safety. I have worked extensively in the following sectors viz., smelting, refineries, petrochemical, mining, sugar, pulp and paper, heavy metal, power generation, paint manufacture and various other process plants. I have successfully completed the Integrated Management System Lead Auditor Courses for ISO 9001:2015, ISO 14001:2015 and ISO 45001:2018. In 2008, I was awarded a full scholarship by the Government of the United Kingdom to study Global Environmental Best Practices. Upon my return to South Africa, I disseminated this knowledge to all three spheres of Government viz., National, Provincial and Local. I have been a freelance ISO Auditor since July 2016. I am currently associated with Certification Bodies such as DQS; DEKRA and SANAS. I have an in-depth knowledge and experience in Leading Audits for the ISO 9001, ISO 14001, and ISO 45001 standards. It is my duty to ensure that my audit team members understand their roles, responsibilities, and deliverables per audit. I am responsible to plan and implement the audit and to submit the audit report. I am responsible for communicating the audit outcomes with the clients and ensuring compliance to the standard requirements. My role description requires me to liaise extensively with the decision makers of companies viz., Company Directors, CEOs, Production Managers etc. I champion the findings and recommendations made during the audits and ensure compliance to the above-mentioned standards based on industrial Best Practices both Globally and Nationwide. In addition, as a full-time SHE Practitioner, I performed incident investigations and formulated actionable solutions for completion with preventive measures. During this time, I was accountable for expediting overdue corrective actions with the internal clients and to provide advice and guidance in formulating workable solutions going forward. I also provided certification training during full-time employment. I collated and reported SHE statistics against production outputs from various sites for relevant management review meetings. Currently, I am also involved in providing SHEQ Consultancy Services to clients seeking ISO implementation. I am also involved in facilitating training courses at DQS as and when needed. I recently registered my business with the South African Revenue Services. Should you require more information, kindly feel free to contact me using the details below. I pride myself in building strong client partnerships for mutual business sustainability. Thank you for taking the time to consider my application.
