Who are we?

  

Pro-Safety Consultants (PSC) is an independent consulting group with a focus on adding value to our clients by fostering integration of security with other business processes, systems and technology. We assist clients to develop realistic, appropriate and cost-effective strategies for protection of infrastructure, people and other assets. 

PSC is dedicated to supporting clients’ physical security and ICT infrastructure and system needs. Whether designing security systems or working with project teams to implement the most efficient architecture, or configuring your computer network to protect your information, we're here to give you the best advice.

Our consultant-owned company has been operating for 18 years. Our unique value to our clients arises from more than 75 years of collective experience in physical and ICT security strategies, information systems technology and technical project management, coupled with a rigorous risk management framework.

This combined skill and experience base is unique, but most importantly, we take particular care to understand our clients’ needs and, to ensure that the solutions we offer are value adding and targeted at their business.

  • Terry Mack, PSC Director.  ICT and Security Business Leader with 18 years of experience delivering innovative, complex design solutions to clients globally.

Our Key Strengths

We strive to be the best

We offer a variety of services and strive to be the best in customer service, knowledge, teamwork, and communication. 

We offer

  •  The latest proven technology
  •  A balanced, common sense approach to security as a risk management investment
  •  Technical expertise and project delivery capability second-to-none
  •  Commonwealth Government (SCEC) endorsed consultants, current licences in most state jurisdictions (details can be provided on request)
  •  Extensive consulting experience with national and multi-national organisations as well as government agencies
  •  Well networked in government security and law enforcement
  •  Excellent corporate and government management experience based on extensive public and private sector employment.

Security is about protection of the community, its infrastructure, its people, and their property. Effective security outcomes are achieved when protection is cost effective, aligned with risks and when infrastructure is seamlessly integrated with other systems.


Security is an integral part of corporate governance, OHSE, asset protection, brand protection, human resource functions, supply chain assurance and information security management and it increasingly presents a major challenge to businesses and governments alike.


PSC Consultants has almost 20 years experience in helping its clients develop  relevant and innovative business solutions.

We can help.
