TERMS AND CONDITIONS OF BUSINESS

 

Disclaimer:

Soteria Salus makes all reasonable endeavours to safeguard the confidentiality of clients. Site Audits and Inspections are performed on the specified premise and therefore only highlight the deviations that are observed on that premise. This neglects the fact that same or similar or other deviations would be found at other premises that the company operates. Thus the Corrective Actions would need to be implemented where applicable or lacking on the other premises.


Findings and deviations issued on reports are based on the OHSA (Occupational Health and Safety Act and Regulations) and on a SHEQ management system according to Soteria Salus’s working knowledge of Management Systems implemented in South Africa. This does not guarantee that all deviations to other standards and legislation (i.e. COID Act, BCE Act, NBR Act, NEMA Act, etc.) have been identified and Soteria Salus accepts no liability in this regard. The deviations and findings are specific to your company and can not be used for other companies to implement elsewhere.


The reports are compiled based upon information collected by Soteria Salus. Although every effort has been made to ensure the accuracy of data reported, Soteria Salus accepts no liability for any damage suffered by any person including patrimonial damages, consequential loss or any other damage of any nature arising out of any information contained in the reports.
