Consulting Services


Our consulting services fall under four categories :


§   Safety Inspection

§   Writing of Procedures

§   Coaching Services


Safety Inspection

§   all risks are controlled at a specific location

§   the business meets all standards imposed by laws and regulations, including:


§   dangerous goods storage

§   conformance to WHMIS and TDG standards

§   problems related to static electricityndissipation

§   working in confined spaces

§   quality control of aviation fuel…


Risk Analysis

Recognition of actual and potential risks is a major asset in workplace accident prevention.


Our consultants can, by a simple visit of your  workplace,


§   identify risks relating to an existing or planned task or process


§   determine safety measures to control these risks and be in conformity with in force standards


§   identify risks relating to working in confined spaces.


It is strongly recommended that a risk analysis be conducted during planning of a new task or process.


Writing of Procedures

A work procedure is a reference tool used by workers to ensure work quality and efficiency as well as personal safety.


Work procedures are an effective tool for informing on and teaching safety.  Our experts write simple, easy-to-understand procedures to answer three essential questions: What to do, when and how?


By developing work procedures, corporate management shows its willingness to protect their employees, react to modifications introduced through legislation and respond to external pressures on the business from the community or stakeholders.


Coaching Services


What to do to prevent an accident? 

How to react in case of an accident?

What to do after an accident?


Health and safety managers and specialists often ask themselves those questions but do not always find the answers.  Our experts provide assistance to clients seeking counsel or advice on how to solve a problem, establish procedures, and so on.


We provide assistance to clients in implementing  effective working groups for health and safety related activities (health and safety committee, emergency response team, etc.).


Finally, we assist our clients in finding solutions for specific health and safety-related problems.
