Depending on the standard employers strive to adhere to, our consultants are well versed to assist in identifying deficiencies in your program while validating your hard work in systematic way. These audits are vital for employers who are required to have a validated program in place when securing contracts with companies that have requirements to prove they have a health and safety system in place.

Joint Health & Safety Committees (JHSC) Assessment

Health and Safety Committee Representatives play an important role in keeping customer workplaces healthy and safe. This service is designed to ensure the committee is both effective and in conformance to the requirements of the Occupational Health and Safety Act. It is ideal when a committee may feel it is not functioning effectively or able to resolve issues that have been provided to it. The WSPS consultant providing this service will also teach the JHSC how to conduct a key group facilitation technique deigned to help committees explore strengths and weaknesses and achieve collaborative decision making outcomes.

Safety Culture Integration Needs Assessment (INA)

The Safety Culture Integration Needs Assessment (INA) provides customers with information on the degree to which their health and safety system is aligned with their existing business processes. The INA identifies areas of strength and areas where health and safety is not fully integrated into the company’s business operations. These areas become opportunities for the company to further strengthen their HS system, by bringing these aspects more closely into alignment.

Mock Workwell Audit

A health and safety audit is a proactive process used by customers to determine baseline Occupational Health and Safety (OHS) program adequacy and as a tool to continuously monitor the effectiveness of program prevention efforts.

The Workwell Audit sets out a structured framework specifically aligned to reflect compliance with the Workplace Safety and Insurance Act and Occupational Health and Safety Act.

The Workwell audit service will help customers monitor the implementation and effectiveness of the efforts taken in their Health and Safety prevention program.

This service is designed to help move Ontario provincially regulated customers closer to meeting compliance with this legal expectation. This service reinforces good industry practice which applies a system audit as a tool to manage safety in an objective way.
