It is important that every employer is regularly conducting audits of their facilities and job sites to ensure that their Health & Safety Program and its policies are being followed. We provide support to employers who do not have available internal resources to conduct these audits, or who want to bring in an outside firm to support culture change or reinforce the importance of compliance.
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 our audit process or about the act and legislation in general.
To book a discovery meeting or just ask some questions, call our consulting team directly at (866) 756-5554.
