About Us

The Cairnmead Mission

We simply and easily assist our clients with the relevant, hands-on application of the Occupational Health and Safety Act, Regulations and associated South African National Standards.

Cairnmead Industrial Consultants provide you with a unique consulting service in the Health and Safety discipline. We lead through simplicity and realise that safety doesn’t just come through knowledge, but through understanding. We seek to help our clients understand and we translate our vast knowledge and expertise into simple, useable information.

Every contractor taking on a project has the necessary documentation to ensure that the client is fully covered. We conduct documentation audits on all principal contractors and sub-contractors appointed on any project. We further manage the process with the tenants and their contractors in order to confirm that tenants fulfil their legal responsibilities.

We apply our discipline with the practical understanding of what is required in industry, as well as the theoretical knowledge that is attached to that practice.

We are proud to have been associated with one of the largest single phase shopping malls built in Africa, and we are even more proud to be associated with a prestigious client such as Attacq Waterfall Investment Company (Pty) Ltd. To see other developers please visit our projects page.
