Cygma SHEQ South Africa (Pty) Ltd is a private company registered in South Africa and a subsidiary of the Cygma Group. As a Specialist Consulting firm in the Safety, Health and Environmental as well as Quality Management field, we differentiate ourselves from the standard SHEQ service providers by offering a disciplined approach to the SHEQ arena. Each of the four fields are managed by a dedicated professional, carefully chosen based on working experience and exposure in the field of compliance.

The Brand

Cygma SHEQ started in 2001 when one of the founders opted to venture into private consulting, utilising his 15 years prior work experience. As a start-up, many challenges were overcome through dedication and persistence and today, almost 20 years later, the company is regarded as one of the top 5 in South Africa.

With its past successes and failures as learning experience, Cygma SHEQ’s future plans includes a strategic roll-out throughout Africa, and an international expansion program which has recently been finalised under the Cygma HSE banner.


Owning a Cygma franchise gives you a head start with a unique income plan. Our business concept is unique in the way we deal with our clients. We offer clients piece of mind in that we are always aware of what is active, where actions are required and where improvement can be achieved. Embracing smarter technology is key to our excellent client experience.

Our target clientele includes multi-national and corporate business, privately held companies, Governmental departments and SMME’s.

With a larger exclusive territory assigned to each franchisee, there is sufficient room for expansion to benefit both the franchisee and capitalising on brand value.


Cygma SHEQ is a professional service provider and corporate member of the South African Institute of Occupational Safety and Health (SAIOSH). Professional development is aligned to the SAIOSH requirements.

Business operational training is offered online, and an initiation phase includes one-on-one set-up assistance.
Our business support services includes national marketing & advertising, invoicing and debt recovery as well as ICT support.

Are You Our Next Franchisee?

The Cygma SHEQ franchise will suite qualified professionals in Safety Engineering, Occupational Hygiene, Ergonomics, Environmental sciences and Management systems auditing.

Professionalism, ethical conduct and honesty are prize possessions, while advanced computer literacy is essential to operate in a paperless business environment.

Relevant business management or consulting practice management in excess of 10 years is ideal to make a success, while the ability to operate in a highly competitive market is essential.
