About P-E Handley-Walker:

P-E HANDLEY-WALKER (P-E Handley-Walker & Associates, HAZCOM GHS) is a wholly Australian owned and operated business with shares held by its Directors. We are certified to ISO 9001 and our CEO is a registered Lead Auditor,  certified Trainer-Assessor, and practising consultant.

and have assisted a number of our clients to achieve and maintain certification of their management systems.

We also consult and train in areas related to chemicals safety and compliance such as the

  • Globally Harmonised System  Classification and Labelling of Chemicals (GHS)
  • HSNO classification
  • Safety Data Sheets and Label authoring and training
  • Work Health and Safety
  • Hazardous Chemicals
  • Dangerous Goods

In addition to our work in Australia, our consultants have participated in assignments in South East Asia and Oceania.

P-E Handley-Walker is strongly associated with quality assurance in Australia and a leader in the field of compliance auditing and consulting. Our business includes the provision of quality assurance, occupational health & safety, environmental and chemical safety compliance consulting, training and audit services. Whilst we have advised some of Australia’s larger organisations, we have a strong focus on, and well-developed methodologies for the small business sector. We pride ourselves on our hard-earned reputation and maintain our market position through client referrals and repeat business. Our CEO maintains Lead Auditor registration with Exemplar Global, and our management system consultants include Lead and Senior auditors with substantial experience as second and third party auditors, and AIDGC membership as Dangerous Goods consultants. All of our consultants have substantial experience in auditing and management systems.

We recognise that developing management systems that meet national and international criteria is a major investment for organisations. Our philosophy is based on encouraging our clients to implement integrated systems that are effective, economical and easy to maintain rather than “bolt on” systems for short term gains.

P-E Handley-Walker training programs are well-established, and popular with our wide client base. In Australia, we have now helped hundreds of small, medium and large sized companies to implement management systems and achieve third party certification. We also assist international chemical companies and other organisations with chemicals regulatory compliance and management including GHS Classification, Safety Data Sheets and Labels for Australia and New Zealand (HSNO).
