SSG Standard Solutions Group and HSE Consulting are entering an agreement to enhance work safety in Iceland. The collaboration aims to improve safety performance and safety culture for companies and contractors, through standardised services and web-based safety training.
SSG has developed several successful tools for increasing work safety in industry and other sectors. For a couple of years, SSG has grown their business outside of Sweden with reputable international companies, now the time has come to introduce SSG Safety in Iceland by establishing a local agency. SSG has entered an agreement in which HSE Consulting will represent SSG in the country. The cooperation will also mean further development and refinement of the SSG concept.
– We have been searching for opportunities to grow internationally and are looking forward to cooperating with HSE Consulting. Together we can make a difference to support companies and contractors to fulfil legal requirements regarding work safety. With services and training from SSG, combined with the experience and knowledge of the local market from HSE Consulting, we expect a thriving partnership and improving the safety performance, says Mats Jakobsson, CEO of SSG.

Our main area of focus has always been on health, safety, and environment, so we feel fortunate to have found the perfect business partner offering high-quality expertise and best in class solutions in this field. There is a great need and potential in the Icelandic market for SSGs products and services. We look forward to signing on companies and contractors who can now benefit from SSG’s user-friendly platform, tools, and training, all designed to keep their employees and workplace healthy and safe at all times, says Eyþór Sigfússon, CEO of HSE Consulting.
