These WSPS Consulting services are designed to help move customers closer to meeting compliance with the legal expectations of the OHSA related to the specific hazards within their workplaces. Our consultants work closely with our customers to develop tailored and sustainable hazard specific programs for unique hazards experienced at the workplace.
Our work helps the customer deal proactively with these hazards in a structured and consistent manner following recognised industry practice. This ensures the hazards identified are managed relative to risk and that workers can subsequently receive the training necessary to ensure workplace safety. This service ensures the customer is working from a comprehensive and consistent program that addresses their needs.
The following outline just some of the hazard specific program development solutions we assist our customers with.
Confined Space Program Development
In tandem with key customer stakeholders WSPS consulting professionals will review existing program documentation, the workplace and confined spaces in question in order to develop a "model" confined space entry program and supporting procedures that can enable safe confined space management protocols.
Safe Work Practices Development (SWP)
Safe Work Practices (SWP) assist employers to operationalize their health and safety program by documenting the areas or tasks that are at high risk listing out safe work practices to prevent injury.
Violence and Harassment Prevention Program Development
This solution provides Ontario Provincially regulated customers with a documented Workplace Harassment and Violence prevention program in alignment to the requirements of the OHSA, Ontario Ministry of Labour and Prevention System Partner Guidelines.
Tech Shop & Science Class Inspection - Student Injury Prevention Initiative
WSPS provides inspections of Tech Shops such as Construction, Manufacturing, Transportation, Hospitality, Cosmetology, Communications and Green Industries, identifying a broad range of hazards including machine, chemical and fall hazards. WSPS also inspects science classrooms, labs and storage/prep areas. WSPS has developed an inspection checklist for various types of classrooms, general conditions, as well as interview questions for administrators and staff. Contracts for these services are often won through and open RFP process, so the objectives, scope and pricing may vary depending on the specific needs of the school board.
