About GSRC Management

GSRC Management began trading in 2004 and was led by Sarel Allers, a SHE Practitioner with more than ten years’ experience in the field of SHE Risk Management, most of it garnered in the South African Airforce.  His belief was that SHE Training was not improving the candidates that went on those courses and after much deliberation, he felt that he could provide a better service that would offer clients positive returns on the training cost as well as ensuring that training was not a generic type of course but rather customized to the clients requirements in order that candidates were trained on what was applicable to them.  Safety, after all, is not generic and needs to be adapted to the requirements of different businesses.

Furthermore, it was found that traditional training methods were not effective in getting the message across to the candidates, who also viewed safety training as a waste of time and boring.  It was from this viewpoint that Sarel made the decision to make our training dynamic and exciting with the facilitator’s people who had experience in various SHE practitioner roles so that they could bring to life the training theory by the use of practical examples.  As a result, our classes are head and shoulders above the competition because we incorporate real life situations into our training.

Using facilitators who have a passion for SHE management as well as a passion for training, our courses are a vibrant and exciting place to be where a desire to learn is fostered and a transference of knowledge is achieved.  As a SETA Accredited institution, we also adhere to all of the necessary quality as well as course material requirements to ensure that we can benchmark with the best and so be better than the best.

By 2006 it was clear that many companies were not implementing and managing their SHE Risk systems correctly or holistically and so we entered the consulting market to assist our clients achieve better results with their SHE performance.  We do this because we believe in PRODUCTION FIRST – SAFETY ALWAYS and to achieve this principle one needs to understand the correct risk management theory, chief among them being that risk is always with us and we can never make a working environment completely safe, that is, an environment without risk prevalent in it.  Therefore, to operate a safety system correctly, we must ensure that we manage the risk accurately and efficiently in order for us to work effectively without putting our business out of business by too much safety management.  Stopping the job for safety transgressions is treating the symptoms and not curing the disease and it is this approach that sets us apart from our competitors.

Excellent infrastructure means better serve to our clients.

Safety Always

Our consultants are energetic and experienced in the field and we have personnel from a diverse range of industries, such as fuel and chemicals through to iron and steel as well as mining and they assist numerous companies in managing their risk so that those companies’ managers can focus on their core business with the peace of mind that they are operating not only in compliance to the law, but to the best standards in industry.

In a time when the SHE field is inundated with SHE “practitioners”, we offer our clients a proven track record of offering a quality service, accredited training and effective solutions that are respected in the field, giving our clients the peace of mind that no matter what happens, we have their backs at all times.

Cost Effectiveness

Question: Should I bother reading any further?
Answer: If you have a limitless safety / risk management budget - NO!

Even though we've entered the era of safe working environments and empowered employees, industry was still hit with a record amount of safety-related fines and penalties. When that cost is added to the thousands of lost work-hours due to on-the-job injuries, and the billions of rands spent annually on Workers Compensation Disability claims, it becomes clear that safety is one of the most important issues facing the workplace today.

• What is the return on investment of your Safety / Risk Program / Provider?
• What is the cost of risk in your company?
