The Oxford dictionary defines Nirvana as – “a state of perfect happiness”

The design of our services is to introduce to our clients the means to achieve Nirvana by offering our clients a fast, efficient and proficient service.

This corporate portfolio intention is to acquaint you with the various services available from Nirvana Business solutions.

The Emergency Medical Services in South Africa are always consistently criticised by the media about the ever- rising incidents of delayed response to emergencies. The very nature of our society is responsible for this dilemma, but there is a solution for this. By ensuring that we have people trained in the working/home environment in basic first aid and basic firefighting skills, we can make the difference between life and death. A further consideration should be the training of employees in Health and Safety issues to prevent problems before they arise.
