Critical Country Reviews
Across Africa six Critical Country Reviews were conducted following a number of work fatalities in South Africa, Kenya, Zambia, Mozambique and Democratic Republic of Congo
The reviews were carried out by the regional director for safety and health from G4S North America who travelled to each country to meet with the management teams, review the data from the fatalities and work with the teams to look at steps taken to prevent such incidents recurring. Each CCR in Africa lasted between two and five days and was facilitated by the regional health and safety manager for Africa. At the end of each review an action plan was developed with the management team which is currently being implemented. Feedback from all participants in this process has been exceptionally positive.
“The visit was appreciated by me and the G4S Secure Solutions’ Senior Management Team in South Africa as it not only demonstrates the group’s commitment to health and safety, but has also assisted us in obtaining an independent view of our health and safety performance and compliance. The recommendations from the review are being used to ensure that we implement processes that will lead to an improvement in our health and safety practices”.

“The feedback report was very enlightening. It provided us the rare opportunity of having a completely independent person analyse our current system and make constructive criticisms and recommendations.”
