DISCUSSING SHE&Q ISSUES

This limited edition book by Christel Fouche titled “Discussing SHE&Q Issues” was compiled due to various requests from industry SHEQ professionals to assist them with day-to-day problems that they encounter.

Over the past two years the content was designed and developed and then published in various SHEQ-related magazines in South Africa. The whole idea is to keep SHEQ professionals informed about related SHEQ matters.

This book is not an A-Z SHEQ implementation guide, but designed to touch on various SHEQ topics.

“I trust you will benefit from the content of this book and make a positive change towards saving employees’ lives, improving employee health, adopting a sustainable environmental management approach and realizing the importance of quality in not only workplace systems, but also as a part of your everyday life.” said Christel
