ODZ en bref

Growth strategy




Safety has become such a key issue in modern life, given its complexity and the continuous tightening of regulations, that companies now see it as a top management priority. The specialist teams at ODZ Consultants have been providing professional engineering advice since 1989, helping industry and engineering companies to prevent and reduce the risks of human and technical accident. 
Starting out originally as a team of experts in  safety engineering, ODZ Consultants has gradually expanded its skills base over the years to spread across the whole industry sector. And this strong ability to break down barriers between professions and to pool skills across the entire industry spectrum, developing a cross-link vision of safety matters, is what makes Group ODZ Consultants stand out from the rest.   
Founded in 1989, ODZ Consultants is one of the few independent research bodies offering comprehensive know-how in Occupational Safety and Health (OSH). Taking a needs-based approach to the client to keep ahead of the game, the company has developed a constant growth strategy since its very beginnings, and continues to expand its field of expertise to secure a wider range of services. At the same time, the company is committed to maintaining a human dimension, so as to ensure our clients the most efficient and flexible response to their needs.
