On hand for business recommencement
Testing, inspection and certification services provider Bureau Veritas has developed a suite of solutions to support companies of all sizes as they get the economy going again.
“Restart Your Business with BV” has been developed in collaboration with a range of experts and stakeholders to help companies and government to recommence operations with the legislated health protocols and sanitary conditions in place.
“Increasingly, we are here to support our valued customers as they resume their business operations in a safe manner, with the health and safety protection of their employees and clients being our top priority,” says Sal Govender, vice-president for Bureau Veritas Southern Africa.
“Restart Your Business with BV” is a digital platform offering a suite of solutions enhanced by a digital ecosystem, designed to address the risks specific to all places where people live and work, from construction sites and factories to offices, hospitality venues, restaurants, shops and public facilities.
“Using industry-leading local and global expertise, we will conduct independent risk assessments and audits, putting the requisite health, safety and hygiene steps in place to ensure business is compliant with local and international regulations,” notes Govender.
The ecosystem includes operational assistance tools for companies who want to reassure stakeholders of their compliance with regulations to ensure their health and safety are safeguarded.
A Certificate of Compliance and a Site Label Sticker, complete with QR code and validity date, both valid for a six-month period, will be issued, acknowledging regulatory compliance.
“We remain committed to the sectors of construction, mining and commodities, manufacturing, healthcare (pharmaceutical), buildings and infrastructure, agriculture, food, oil and gas, marine, power and utilities,” Govender says.
The head office for Bureau Veritas Southern Africa is located in Johannesburg, with branches in Cape Town, Centurion, Durban and Pretoria; and laboratories in Cape Town, Centurion, Durban, Johannesburg and Richards Bay.
