Evolution 'a process of gradual, peaceful, progressive change or development'

In response to an ever increasing pressure on workplaces to comply with Work Health & Safety Legislation, Adam Taunton founded Evolution QSE in 2010 with the aim of helping Australian organisations understand and meet their compliance requirements across the safety, quality and environmental disciplines.


Teaming with organisations to understand their unique circumstances, Evolution QSE quickly established itself as a premier safety consultation firm through developing tailored  and specialised controls and management systems.

​Since the company's inception, Evolution QSE has grown and developed it's services to cater to the compliance requirements of several key industries including, construction, transport, manufacturing, retail, hospitality and government. In this time, Evolution QSE has expanded to offer it's services at a global level, partnering with multi-national organisations across New Zealand, The United States of America and Europe.
