Package Overview

Every company needs the same essential elements present in their Health and Safety Manual. We take the guess-work out of budgeting for these essentials and make it easy to be compliant with the act and regulations, and make it easy to keep your workers safe with this Safety Manual package.

The first step we take in these projects is a 30 minute discovery meeting to better understand your needs and context. This also will give you an opportunity to ask any questions you might have about developing a program or just what is required of you by the act and legislation, and how you should be applying it in your organization.

To book a discovery meeting or just ask some questions, call our consulting team directly at (866) 756-5554.

Discounts are available for updating an existing manual, or for businesses with 10 or fewer employees.

Package Includes:

Review of Existing Program & Policies
Site Visit & Process Audit
Program & Policy Development
Digital & Hard Copy Provided
Recommendations Report

Next Steps

  1. Prior to any work beginning, we will meet with you do discuss your needs and craft a proposal for work to be completed ensuring our plan and your requirements are aligned.
  2. We will review all existing health and safety policies and programs to identify gaps in existing programs related to The Occupational Health and Safety Act and associated regulations.
  3. We will then visit workplace(s) and identify key elements related to business operations.
  4. We will prepare a health and safety program that meets the standards related to your workplace (depending on workplace, programs will include hazard analysis, training, inspections, incident investigation, JHSC, safe work procedures and violence and harassment).
  5. When the program is ready, we will prepare a report and review with key personnel and management.

Why is a Safety Manual Required?

The Occupational Health and Safety Act requires employers that regularly employ more than five employees to prepare and review at least annually a written occupational health and safety policy, and to develop and maintain a program to implement that policy.

Employer’s Responsibilities

  • Take every precaution reasonable in the circumstances for the protection of a worker
  • Prepare and review at least annually a written occupational health and safety policy and develop and maintain a program to implement that policy
