With an Initial inspection and audit to determine gaps, we’ll review the following:
A compliant Health & Safety program requires documentation.
For many managers, developing policies and procedures, creating programs and schedules, reviewing and updating manuals, writing reports, and generally keeping up with the documentation to maintain compliance can be burdensome, if not overwhelming.
We can help to alleviate that burden for your team.
Some of the documentation we assist your team in preparing and managing:
- Health & Safety Policy
- Health & Safety Manual (for Employees)
- Safety Protocol Signage
- Orientation Training Program
- Violence & Harassment Policy and Program
- JHSC Training Manual
- JHSC Inspection and Audit Reports
- JHSC Meeting Minutes
- Worker Incident and Accident Reports
- WSIB Claim Management with Modified Work procedures
- Training Schedules
- Safe Operating Procedures
Safe Operating Procedures (SOPs) – or Safe Working Procedures (SWP) – are operational documents that describe the safest and most efficient way to perform a task. SOPs provide the necessary information needed to ensure worker safety and reliability, including in hazardous processes or activities. They also assist in the training, orientation and assessment of new employees.
SOPs are an essential part of an occupational health and safety program and an overall safe work environment. They are required for any routine activity or process associated with a medium to high-risk outcome, meaning an injury may occur if performed incorrectly.
Before hazardous work can be performed:
- a Risk Assessment is carried out
- a relevant Safe Operating Procedure is prepared
- users are trained on the SOP
SOPs are prioritized according to their level of risk, including hazard exposure, frequency of exposure, and worker knowledge and experience.
SOPs are reviewed:
- Whenever a task or activity changes
- When a new hazard is identified, e.g., new information in a Safety Data Sheet (SDS)
- When equipment or processes are not used for over 6 months and worker knowledge and experience may have declined
- After an associated injury, near miss or illness
- Every three years
