& Meet the Team!
KM Compliance Limited came about with the change in the regulations from the HSNO Act to the Health and Safety At Work (Hazardous Substances) Act 2017. It was set up by Director and Compliance Certifier Kirsty McAnally in May 2018.
Although it is a new name and branding from Kirsty’s previous company Envirocom NZ Ltd, the business still operates out of the same location in Dunedin.
