At every step of the way we have created systems and processes to ensure nothing falls between the cracks – safety equipment is tracked with no exceptions, reports go in on time with no exceptions and reminders are sent out with no exceptions. That is what it takes to maintain a perfect track record in this industry – and this is why clients stay with us for decades.

Ultimately it is the high standards that keep us coming back

“I am writing to you today to express my sincere gratitude to you and your team at Zokal Safety Services for the work you have done for Incitec Pivot Limited, BigN business unit during the past five years.

Right from the onset of negotiations in mid 2002 both you and your team members have been nothing but courteous and professional regarding the tasks required by our company.

Zokal Safety Services carry out numerous safety checks for us twice a year at over forty different sites in two states. Checks on items, such as self contained breathing apparatus, fire extinguishers, fire hose reels, first aid kits, fall arrest equipment and personal protective equipment are all done within a very short time frame for us. Registers for over 1500 pieces of equipment are updated and sent to us electronically for posting on our local intranet. This enables us to meet strict state legislation laws that govern the safe storage of our product.

Not withstanding the above tasks Zokal Training Services also provide for our safety training needs and relevant refresher training. These courses are conducted at the highest of standards and always receive positive feedback from employees that attend.

Ultimately it is the high standards kept by yourself and your team members that keep Incitec Pivot Limited coming back for your services. I would be only too happy to recommend Zokal Safety Services to any prospective firm or individual.“

Reliability and the quality of their work over thirty three years is faultless

Zokal Safety Services have been a permanent service provider with Tomago Aluminium since 1983. Zokal have been on site every week for the past 33 years providing a reliable and quality service in maintaining our life support equipment. Our company requirements have included the following:

  • Weekly inspection and monitoring of all high pressure cylinders.
  • Monthly function testing on all breathing apparatus, trolley systems and air lines.
  • Six monthly service and repair of all life support systems.
  • 12 monthly, 3 and 6 yearly servicing of breathing apparatus including reducers.
  • Hydrostatic testing and recharging of all high pressure cylinders.
  • Integrity testing of breathing lines.

I have found this company to be highly professional in their approach and attitude to the safety of plant personnel through their diligence and thoroughness with the equipment under their care. Zokal have always been at call and has always met our company’s needs when required. Documentation, reporting, and recommendations have always been forthcoming at the appropriate times.”

“Zokal has repeatedly won tenders with our company for the service and maintaining of our life support equipment not only because they are competitive in the marketplace but also because they are reliable and the quality of their work is faultless. The assurance that this area of my safety management portfolio is being looked after by a competent service provider has made my function a lot more productive.”

Paul Philips, Safety Services Officer, Tomago Aluminium

Having this level of service made my job easier

“We have used Zokal Safety services to complete all the major services on our CABA suits used underground as part of our Escape system. This has included:

  • Function testing on all breathing apparatus
  • Twelve monthly, five and six yearly servicing including reducers
  • Hydrostatic testing and recharging of all high pressure cylinders
  • Integrity testing of breathing airlines
  • Vacuum sealing of CABA suits

During this time Zokal provided a thoroughly professional service that maintained our compliance of this delicate equipment.

They also assisted and maintained all the records required to a high standard.

Zokal were available on call and always met our company’s needs and requests when required. Having this level of service made my job easier knowing our equipment was maintained and recorded to a high level.

I would have no hesitation in recommending Zokal to provide professional work in a professional manner”

Greg Dobbins, Emergency Services Officer, Dendrobium Coal Pty Ltd, A member of the BHP Billiton Group

Their presentation and delivery was the best that I have seen

“I would like to pass on some feedback on Zokal’s SCBA course that I sat in on yesterday. I’ve been here a long time and this is probably the second or third time I have done one of these. James presentation and delivery was the best that I have seen, he did not rush it, it took 4 hours to do and was very thorough.

I am sure everyone learnt from the session.”

Eddie Paliokas, Ammonia Training Group Manager, Orica Mining Services, Kooragang Island

They are professional and of the highest integrity

“ZOKAL SAFETY SERVICES have been providing training programs to our mine site for the past few years, they include senior first aid, enter confined space and working at heights.

I have found this provider, all it’s training and service staff to be professional and of the highest integrity in the execution of their duties, their standard in the end product they provide is better than any other.”

Michael Prior, Emergency Services Officer, Xstrata Coal

They are competent and reliable and service most equipment on site

“In 2014 I moved to Zokal as the service provider for the supply, re-calibration and servicing of Confined Space safety equipment and height safety systems and hardware. They have proven to be competent and reliable and one of their major advantages has been that they service most equipment on site. This largely eliminates sending it away and the added expense of couriers and potential hire of loan equipment. I have been particularly impressed with the knowledge, expertise and helpfulness of James Prout. He has been able to provide creative solutions to issues that we had been unable to solve prior to him being involved with our workplace. Zokal stands out as a quality service provider.”

Rob Kalinowski, OH&S Co-ordinator, Sanitarium Australia

15 years of excellent service at a competitive price

“Zokal Safety Services have been providing an equipment inspection and maintenance service to Glen Innes Severn Council for ten years and for at least five years prior to amalgamation, so for at least fifteen years Zokal has been providing an excellent service to the Council.

In that time period Zokal attended our various sites on the routine twice yearly equipment inspections, these have been completed by their technicians in a professional and cautious manner. If any equipment is taken off site for service it is always returned promptly. Documentation provided from the inspections is good and easily understood.

Zokal also assisted in upgrading our safety equipment particularly harnesses and lanyards. The advice given on new equipment requirements was invaluable. They assisted Council to correctly identify our confined spaces and they prepared a detailed report on the outcome.

Zokal Safety Services has provided our training requirements for confined space, working at heights, fire fighting, sharps and hazardous chemicals for at least fifteen years.

The courses are conducted on our site by trainers who have a wealth of knowledge and experience. The trainers are able to use our facilities to gain the maximum benefit for our staff.

Some of our staff have been attending the courses for some years now and Zokal have been able to keep them engaged and interested, our practical scenarios have evolved over the years, this has been due to the enthusiasm of the Zokal training staff. Feedback is positive from our staff on the training courses they have attended.

Zokal Safety Services provide a competitive price for both equipment and training provision.

Zokal have provided Glen Innes Severn Council with excellent service and advice and we look forward to continuing the association into the future. “
