Health & Safety



Everite Building Products represents a range of business units (BU’s) in the manufacturing plant situated at Kliprivier, Gauteng,  who are responsible for the day to day running of their individual business and Safety, Health, Environmental and Quality (SHEQ) affairs.


Everite Building Products’ Vision, namely to be an exceptional provider of building, infrastructure and engineering solutions, is entrenched in its reputation to produce exceptional quality product to the satisfaction of its clients.


Everite Building Products has developed and implemented a Safety, Health, Environmental, Quality (SHEQ) and Railway Safety, Integrated Management System (IMS), which uses ISO 9001:2015, ISO 14001:2015, ISO 45001:2018 and the RSR SANS 3000 series as a framework that allows the business units to document and improve our environmental, health & safety and quality, and railway operation practices in order to better satisfy the needs and expectations of our customers, stakeholders and interested parties


To ensure a common approach to managing environmental, health and safety, quality performance, and railway operations and to achieve ongoing improvement throughout Everite Building Products, we focus on the systematic identification, management and improvement of the areas of our business that present risk. 

Implementing one system, rather than having a number of individual systems to manage each ISO standard, brings together all requirements for quality, occupational health and safety, the environment and Railway Safety Regulator requirements.

ISO 9001:2015 – Quality Management
