Company History
The background of the CEO as an inspector at the Department of Labour and the need for a quality service in the occupational health and safety field in the Southern Cape made the establishment of such a company the next logical step. House of Safety (Pty) Ltd was founded in 2004 by Hennie Pretorius and three partners. During 2007, the business has grown to such an extent that offices in Cape Town and Johannesburg had to be established to ensure that the excellent service our clients have become used to, are upheld. By 2008, House of Safety moved into their own premises at 94 Merriman Street in George which consists of offices and training facilities. This serves as the head office for the company. During February 2009, Hennie obtained a Doctor of Science degree with major in Occupational Safety and Health.

We are currently awaiting our final approval from the Health and Welfare Seta for providing accredited training in the occupational safety field. This is a field where our expertise can form the basis to provide the necessary competence to the industry.

Charlie Tellis joined the House of Safety team during 2005. Working for Department of Labour for 5 years as a labour inspector. Charlie is another valuable asset to House of Safety. He is currently the Branch Manager at the Johannesburg branch, covering all areas from Durban to Bloemfontein.

Tamé Fourie, Calvin Fourie & Allan Burger are the young dynamic team full of energy. Their practical experience and the training certificates they have obtained makes them a team to be reckoned with.

Regular courses keep our consultants up to date and informed to provide our client with the knowledge they require. The training includes the Construction Safety Practitioners (COSAPRA) course. Permit to Work, the Hazard and Effects Management Process and Gas testing courses have also been attended. The latter training courses are now also being presented at our training facilities in George. Our client base expands to a Global structure enabling ourselves to broaden our knowledge base to a Global level of competence.

Other fields that we specialize in include labour relations and employment equity.
