A regional and personal consultancy with a comprehensive range of services

Our consultants get to know their clients, understand their culture and provide a personal consultancy service, supported by a comprehensive range of services that you would expect from a national company. That’s what sets us apart and makes us different from the rest.
Quality – guarantees a competitive edge
ISO9001:2008 is the international benchmark for quality. Recognised throughout the world as defining the culture and values of a company, it sends a clear message to your suppliers that your company has a structured approach to process management. When tendering for large contracts in both the public and private sector, ISO9001:2008 certification ensures that you won’t be thrown on the reject pile at the first sift. It guarantees a competitive edge.
Employee safety is paramount
Managing a business means managing safety and it’s not just about legal compliance. Yes, there are safety regulations and occupational safety standards that need to be complied with, but when it comes to people, their welfare should always come first. Some one pays the price when safety isn’t managed well; it may be the employer who gets hit with the financial costs of fines, poor productivity or increased insurance claims. However an injured employee often pays the price through long-term ill health, reduced earnings and a poor quality of life. Family life and social life can change forever, and a good employer should ensure that this doesn’t happen.
The expertise to provide a fully integrated management system
At Stepping Stones for Business (SSFB) we specialise in quality and safety management systems, but we also have the necessary in-house skills, expertise and associates to provide you with a fully integrated management system. Should you require environmental processes or HR policies and procedures too, we can design a fully integrated management system tailored to your business.
