“In 2012, the way HSE was run in Aluref South Africa started to change because of a new system which was implemented. This system is called HSEC Online® which translates to health, safety, environment community online, which is just that. HSEC Online® is not just a system which assists with keeping your procedures updated and your trainings valid, it is a growing and improving community where ideas are taken into consideration and implemented into the system, HSEC Online® is not just a stagnant program where you say I wish the system could do this or that, because if you speak to the professional team at Saryx Engineering Group, they will make it happen with everything within their power.”
– Ivan Hartman, Senior HSE Officer, STAREF Qatar

“We as Plant Maintenance Engineering Services work at South32 mines in the Manganese sector.
We have many employees working on these different mines, and we needed to have well maintained safety files to manage all the safety aspects as per the requirements of each mine.
We registered with Saryx and our files are maintained online using HSEC Online®. The support we get from their officials makes it easy for us to maintain a good safety file that meets all requirements, and we recommend HSEC Online® to any contractor who works at any mine.”

“The Saryx team have the highest level of competence with many industrial and IT technologies from power and drive solutions, PLC and control and application, and complex business IT applications.
They can execute the entire engineering scope from detailed design, software applications, commissioning, and after sales lifecycle support that includes application and system training.
As a partner of the Siemens Digital Factory and Process Control and Drive divisions, I can vouch for their ability to execute any application that involves the Siemens product portfolio.”

“We have been using Saryx’s HSEC Online® solution and it has made a noticeable improvement on the outdated paper system we were accustomed to. Not only is it a platform to share all relevant legal compliance documentation, but it is also a data basis that can be used to assist with any information that needs to be kept on record.
We use this to share required information with our clients and sub-contractors. We also created additional sites to keep track of employees and documentation as well to ensure our employees and equipment remain legally compliant.
The reminder function assists us in ensuring that we do not miss any crucial expiry dates.
I recommend this solution to any institution currently using a paper-based contractor’s pack system.”
– Johan Nieuwenhuizen, Safety Manager, DIG Mining
“Saryx did an upgrade of an existing system at Transnet Freight Rail in Saldanha. The new system was installed professionally, on time and without any impact on the service.
The system that was upgraded at Transnet was using an iFIX Server together with the Motorola FEP System. The new system is using WonderWare with the newer HA Motorola FEP. The replacement required the parallel data transfer into the new WonderWare System while still running the iFIX Server. The Parallel solution was used by Saryx to mitigate the risk associated with switching to the new system. Communication from the Motorola FEP to the field is done via RS232. There are 147 outside stations at Transnet that are connected to the system. The interface from the iFIX was redesigned for the WonderWare system with minimal changes done to the overall interface (i.e., everything still looks the same). The new system interfaces perfectly with the old system and no problems were detected during installation and handover.”
– Philip Nell, Electronic Engineer, Transnet Freight Rail

“Zululand Refridgeration takes health and safety matters seriously and we battled to have our documents up to date in some of the corporate blue chips companies or projects we work on.
The introduction of Saryx’s HSEC Online® came to the rescue when keeping documents up to date, especially at South32. The system shows which documents are due to be updated and which will expire. A notification via email is received once they have checked the uploaded documents. The system is easy to use and their support is very helpful on any occasions.”
– Shaun Cooper, Director, Zululand Refrigeration
