It is generally agreed that EFFECTIVE risk management is pivotal to success in modern day business. And yet, businesses continue to lose millions each year through disruption of day-to-day operations caused by ineffective safety and risk management practices.

The ZEAL Group knows that in order to improve the way risk can be controlled one must understand the risks that are unique to the business. They specialise in helping businesses improve their ability to predict, prevent and respond to risk events that will impact their business by developing a range of different risk management solutions tailored to the needs of individual clients. By combining unique culture based interventions and practical safety solutions, ZEAL provides its clients with an integrated approach to ensure sustainable outcomes across their business.

The ZEAL Group was established in 1996 by Carl Luttig who previously had a distinguished career with Rio Tinto as the company’s head of global safety. Mr Luttig believed “working safely” described a company culture which not only realised sustainable safety improvements, but comprehensive results business-wide.

ZEAL underwent rapid growth by attracting and engaging industry leaders and experts, and broadening its portfolio to include strategy, scenario planning, risk, organisational development and business transformation. Its client list now includes leading organisations across mining, telecommunications, retail, industrial and government sectors, such as AngloGold Ashanti, Cliffs Natural Resources, Boral, Telstra, Silcar and BGC.

“Creative on-site conversations that dignify the opinions and local knowledge of workers are key to generating ownership of safety outcomes – and ultimately, the prevention of accidents. ZEAL was instrumental in developing this capability at Silcar,” Silcar chief executive Bernie Cooper said.

ZEAL’s Business Risk consulting service focusses on the delivery of several inter-linking risk based service portfolios including enterprise risk management;  business continuity management; crisis & emergency management; supply chain risk management; operational risk profiling; business scenario planning; and performance risk analysis.

The group’s consultants have sharpened their skills in a range of diverse professional and industry sector backgrounds, and each has substantial experience working with client-based teams to ensure effective design and implementation of risk management programs.

ZEAL’s ultimate aim is to ensure that risk management is integrated into its client’s strategies, goals and management approach, by designing and delivering management strategies and risk solutions that allow them to take advantage of business opportunities, while managing the risks that could potentially disrupt their operations or damage their reputation.
