Following an incident on Mount Kilimanjaro, we wanted to get an independent assessment of our ground agent safety management systems and get an expert to look at all of our systems and procedures. With limited time, Pharos sent a Consultant to Tanzania to audit our systems and I am pleased to say that apart from general improvements, there were no significant problems identified. It is great to have such expertise that can deploy at short notice and the professional detailed written report provides additional evidence of the importance we place on customer safety“.
