Our Value Proposition 

ADDING VALUE TO YOUR BUSINESS

Because our Managing Member, Marius Engelbrecht, has more than 20 years of Corporate experience, he brings more than just SHEQ and ISO knowledge to the table.  Yes, consulting in the fields of SHEQ and ISO is our first and main focal point, but due to Marius's wide range of experience, we can assist our clients with SHEQ and ISO implementation against the backdrop of various other areas of Corporate business (see bullets below).  Understanding exactly where SHEQ & ISO should fit into your business, is a critical decision to make.  We believe that because of our experience in areas such as:

  • Customer service/care (basic solutions)
  • Call/contact centres (advanced solutions)
  • Feasibility studies (all types)
  • Business acquisition and sales (face-to-face, direct and indirect)
  • Training and development (all levels)
  • Project management (all sizes and types of projects)
  • Document management (basic and advanced solutions)
  • Employee relations management (disciplinaries, incapacity enquiries, CCMA cases)
  • Management Information Systems (MIS)
  • Sales Administration and support (empowering the sales team to sell)

we can guide you better in the implementation and ongoing management of SHEQ/ISO.  Our other fields of expertise (see bullets above) as well as Marius's ability to effectively communicate with staff on all levels, definitely makes the process of establishing SHEQ/ISO in your company much easier.  It, of course, also assist companies who already have such disciplines, to take it up to the next level.

A.  TRAINING SERVICES

AccuSpeed firmly believes that SHEQ as a discipline and ISO certification cannot be implemented without the necessary training.  Because not all companies want to go for ISO certifications right away, we have split our training courses into SHEQ courses and ISO courses.  We also offer other types of training courses, as is evident from the information below.  Training can be provided for a small group of people to a group as big as the company wants it to be.  It can be provided on-site (at the companies offices/premises) or a training venue - that is conducive for the group of delegates and type of training - can be sourced.  Although the table below provides as much as possible information, it is best to contact us so we can develop a tailor-made training solution for your company.

We have plenty more courses already designed, which are not listed above. Depending on the company's spesific needs, tailor-made courses can also be developed.

A3.  CUSTOMIZED COURSES

The above courses were designed for companies who either wants to implement SHEQ or ISO for one of the disciplines, let's say ISO9001.  If a company wants to implement a combined SHE system and go for both ISO14001 and OHSAS18001 at the same time, tailor-made courses can be developed in order to save both time and money for the company.

Please e-mail Marius.Engelbrecht@accuspeed.co.za if you need more information on the above courses, or if you need a tailor-made training solution or if you want to discuss the cost of training.  Again, AccuSpeed is different than other Consultancies in that we do not charge a flat fee per hour or day.  We meet with the client, discuss the requirements and then present the client with a proposal and accompanying quote - a pricing structure that best suits the client.  No company is exactly the same as the other one; why should they be billed in the same manner ...?

B.  CONSULTING SERVICES

It remains a fact that a director, head of division, manager or employee cannot know everything there is to know about business.  For this reasons, our world is full of subject matter experts that can assist companies in their fields of expertise.  AccuSpeed is a subject matter expert in SHEQ and ISO and being labelled by businesses as a Consulting Firm, we believe that we can help companies with SHEQ implementation or ISO accreditation in a more cost-effective way than (for example) employing skilled staff to (especially) start with the SHEQ/ISO initiatives.  Further, as our name suggests, we can do this Accurately and Speedily.  This, together with our 100% service quarantine, give our clients the peace of mind that they need as they venture into this new area of business.

Now, unfortunately the principle of "being judge and jury at the same time" appliesAccuSpeed can either (a) train and help with implementation or (b) it can audit your company for ISO certification.  We cannot (and for ethical reasons WILL NOT) do both,  There are some SHEQ consultants that do this, but we have made a business decision not to consult in this manner.  That is like printing your ISO certificate off a website for a few hundred dollars (which, by the way, is possible).

AccuSpeed consults in everything related to SHEQ/ISO.  For example, any of the training subjects mentioned above, AccuSpeed can consult on.  We can also start your system from scratch, we can revitalize your system if it just needs a "re-start" or we can do audits or gap-analysis to identify what needs to be done to be ready for a first assessment by an ISO certification body, i.e. The South African Bureau of Standards.

It remains best if you contact our Managing Member at Marius.Engelbrecht@accuspeed.co.za or phone him on 082-4400033 to set up a "Needs Assessment" meeting at your offices/premises to determine exactly how we can be of assistance to you.  We do not believe in over-promising and under-delivering and thus deem this initial meeting as vital to the success of the intervention.  If a meeting is not necessary and your requirements can be finalised over the phone or by e-mail, we can submit a proposal as soon as possible.

Contact us, you have nothing to lose!
