Health & Safety Certification and Awareness Training Courses


Health and Safety Training

Apart from the effective presentation of most typical 'certified' training courses, our professional trainers are capable of developing programs to overcome a series of in-house, company-specific hazards related to an engineered mechanical or assembly process, then training into bottom-up compliance.

Inspections, Health & Safety Supervision, Core Staffing:

We are often employed by clients who rely on us to provide a fresh set of eyes at the workplace. Our job, simply put, is to ensure compliance with regulations governing a given industry. A typical example would be the inspection services we provide to construction companies with crews deployed far from their home base. In all cases, inspections are thorough and the reports produced are supported through appropriate references to legislation, visual documentation where required, and finally, suggested solutions to any perceived shortcomings at the request of our employer. This service can be expanded to provide site-safety supervision as well as core personnel for confined space operations, including attendants and rescue teams.

Safety Consulting

Our personnel also work with companies to help them meet their health and safety goals. This can mean anything from evaluating an existing health and safety program and providing written materials and/or specialized instruction for discovered gaps, to full-scale development and installation of a complete health and safety environment from the ground floor up.

Testing

Our clients often request air quality assessments. Biological or Chemical agents can be found in many workplace environments, along with noise levels that may be harmful. To ensure the safety of those working in environments where control measures may be required, we deliver these services to our clients where needed.
