About Our Work 

At SM Consulting we pride ourselves in being great at taking away the pain of legislative compliance. The truth is you need to get on with your business and doing what it is that you specialise in not wading though hundreds of pages of legislation. Our aim is to relieve you of the worry and burden that developing and implementing workplace plans can bring.

Our clients vary across a wide range of industries and cover every aspect from developing WHS plans required for tendering on construction jobs, through Workplace Audits, Hazard Analysis and Plans, food safety requirements and much more.

One aspect is common amongst all our clients though -  they need the project completed quickly and need to be sure they comply with legislative requirements in the most cost effective and economical way possible, while they get on with running the business.

If that sounds a little like you, then give us a call or fill in the form for a no obligation discussion about your needs. 



SM Consulting works with you to take the pain out of your compliance requirements. With constantly changing legislation and court decisions re interpreting that legislation it has become almost impossible for business owners to set and manage compliance programs without external help. As experts in this area SM Consulting can help you achieve compliance often in a fraction of the time and cost of attempting to do it yourself.
