Package Overview

It is important that every employer is regularly conducting audits of their job sites to ensure that their Health & Safety Program and its policies are being followed. We provide support to employers who do not have available internal resources to conduct these audits, or who want to bring in an outside firm to support culture change or reinforce the importance of compliance.

The first step we take in these projects is a 30 minute discovery meeting to better understand your needs and context. This also will give you an opportunity to ask any questions you might have about our audit process or about the act and legislation in general.

To book a discovery meeting or just ask some questions, call our consulting team directly at (866) 756-5554.

Package Includes:

Scheduled 3 Hour Site Inspection
Monthly, Quarterly or Annual
JHSC Meeting Hosting
Managed Compliance Tracking
Digital & Hard Copy Inspection Report

Our Process

  1. We will compete a site inspection and observe all work-in-progress.  Completed reports will identify both compliance and non-compliance issues, and recommendations will be made that resolve all safety infractions.
  2. Complete site orientations, gather and record safety certifications
  3. Schedule and host all Joint Health and Safety Committee Meetings
  4. Complete and review all incident investigations and subsequent root cause corrective actions and assist with Ministry of Labour Inspections and Stop Work Orders.

Why Inspections Are Required?

In addition to the requirements outlined in the Occupational Health and Safety Act, the Ontario Regulation 213/91 Construction Projects (provide link) give additional guidance to constructors, general contractors and site supervisors.

As stated in Part 1 of the Construction Regulation, a supervisor or competent person must inspect a workplace at least once per week and also inspect all machinery and equipment, including fire extinguishing equipment, magazines, electrical installations, communication systems, sanitation and medical facilities, buildings and other structures, temporary supports and means of access and egress at the project to ensure that they do not endanger any worker.

Having a third-party inspection further illustrates a firm’s due diligence in relation their legal obligations to protect workers.
