Regardless of the type of business you are in, you need to comply with relevant legislation, such as the Occupational Health and Safety Act covering your jurisdiction. Depending on the type of facility you operate your performance may be assessed for compliance with various standards such as those for building control organisations or relevant building safety regulations.  EMCS can assist you to ensure you meet your obligations in these complex areas.
