We make it our business to deliver the best HSE compliance solutions

Achieving compliance can be a difficult task given the complex, ever-changing nature of environmental and health and safety legislation. Knowing, understanding and having access to the most current environmental and OHS/WHS legal obligations is imperative.

What we do

We strive to be Australia and New Zealand’s most trusted partner in HSE compliance information and services

We achieve this by:

  • Publishing plain English summaries of HSE legislation that are easy to understand and updated monthly
  • Comprehensively covering all environmental legal obligations and OHS/WHS legal obligations
  • Providing extensive support from our subject-matter experts via telephone and email
  • Conducting audits to assess environmental and OHS/WHS compliance
  • Providing consulting services to design and implement environmental and safety management systems

Without Environment Essentials’ tailored information on safety and environmental legislation, we wouldn’t be able to maintain our certification – and without our certification, we wouldn’t have a business.
Matthew Vass, Compliance Manager, Pacific Terminals Australia

Case studies

I have subscribed three of Australia’s leading construction and renewable energy companies, Zinfra Group, Pacific Hydro and Siemens Gamesa, to Environment Essentials.
They have provided each business with an easy to use compliance and standards system that links all their obligations into one easy to use piece of software.
All the hard work is done for you in a series of checks for safety, environment and quality with easy to understand instructions. It’s perfect for meeting your companies legal compliance requirements. Environment Essentials products are essential for any organisation who is serious about their people being “on top” of their safety obligations.

John Smith, Group HSEQ Manager, Siemens Gamesa

The support from Environment Essentials is literally the best of any group we use. The Environment Essentials team run “health checks” on the system ensuring our subscription is always up-to-date, and our personnel is supported by training.
Phil Davidson,  Manager – Environment, Health & Safety, API Management Pty Ltd

I am very impressed with the platform and product. From an ease of use perspective, the platform is very user friendly. As a Legal Register, the platform is the most cost effective and accurate way to ensure our compliance and legal documentation is up to date.
Gavin Wright,  Business System & Certification Consultant, Wright Business Development

Easy to use service. Content provided in easily understandable terms. Useful links to related concepts help provide a broader understanding of legislation. Thoroughly recommend.
Talia Schlen,  Environmental Approvals and Compliance Coordinator, Telstra Corporation Ltd

The Environment Essentials product has been very helpful in order to meet our requirements and compliance goals. I would recommend that anyone requiring the most up to date information regarding legislation around specific acts and regulations use enviroessentials.com.au

Mark Beale, Planning & Risk Superintendent, Port Kembla Coal Terminal

I sat through a 45 minute training session with Stephanie via webinar and found Stephanie extremely knowledgeable and provided a very professional presentation. I was surprised to learn what a useful resource it is, and to understand all of its capabilities and its practical applications here on site with compliance.
Sonia Michael, Office Manager/Site Document Controller, AECOM

We cannot function as a business without Environment Essentials. They are an important strategic partner as they solve my safety and environmental legal compliance needs quickly and effectively.
Sami Dagher, General Manager Risk & Environment, Accor Group

This is the best law service I’ve ever used.  It’s very user friendly. 
Jim Rimmer, Group HSE Manager, Sunrice

It only took me 10 seconds to find something that would have taken me several hours.  This will cut my workload in half. 
Keri-Anne Martin, Health and Safety Advisor, ASSA ABLOY NZ

It helps me to monitor changes to legal obligations.  I work at a group level and it helps me to communicate these changes to my colleagues.
HSE Group Manager, industry leading construction company

There’s a lot more in it than I’d thought.  It’s such a powerful tool. 
Justin Van der Zalm, Manager, Sustainability & Environment, Loy Yang Power

I have been a satisfied customer of Environment Essentials for over eight years and have extensive experience of using both SafetyLaw and EnviroLaw products in my national role as Health, Safety and Environment Manager.  The products are an excellent “one-stop” resource that enables HSE Managers, and all employees, to easily identify and understand the occupational health, safety and environmental legislation requirements across State, Territory and Commonwealth. Moreover, it is a great resource for contributing to risk assessments, auditing (compliance), providing training, promoting awareness to employees on their responsibilities, monitoring changes to legislation and ultimately in achieving self-regulation. I recommend EnviroLaw and SafetyLaw products and the excellent customer service from Environment Essentials without hesitation. 
Ian Counsell, HSE Manager, Ertech Holdings

With Environment Essentials, we know that we’re meeting our legal requirements.  You get the human touch, unlike other players. 
Matthew Vass, Compliance Manager, Pacific Terminals Australia

The audit team was very thorough and professional, and gave very clear and concise information on our obligations.  A truly great outcome and I look forward to continuing our partnerships.  Thank you for your assistance with our accreditation enhancement.  You have a great team working for you. 
Compliance Manager, hazardous materials storage company

I have been accessing the information on a daily basis recently and have been impressed by the simpleness and availability of information. 
EHS Manager, national healthcare company

You have shortened a 10-day data entry process into less than 10 minutes!  Your team ROCKS!!!!!  Million thanks to you and your IT dept!
Product Manager, international manufacturing company

We use EnviroLaw all the time to help with our EMS.  I’m very happy with the service.  It’s invaluable really. 
Brett Vurlow, EMS & Sustainability Coordinator, South Gippsland Water

I am constantly amazed and impressed by the quality of your product and the supporting service. 
EHS Advisor, international food manufacturer

Your system is brilliant.  I gave it a real live test last week as I needed to become familiar with the plant regulation type requirements all over Australia.  Our existing service was not able to deliver the goods at all on what I was trying to do.
Corporation OHS Manager, IT company

I have found the service to be of great use in my deliberations about keeping our projects up-to-speed with our legal obligations.  The service helps me to determine areas of interest and to focus upon changes in our document systems across our business.
Environment & Cultural Heritage Manager, national civil construction company
