Our judicial system and social
culture has completely changed views on the responsibilities
and liabilities in light of worker accidents and management
responsibility. The Globe and Mail reports that 85 percent
of Canadians would like to see corporate executives held accountable
for workplace accidents. Supervisors are now sentenced to
weeks in jail for violations of the Occupational Health and
Safety Act. The governing legislation is based on the Internal
Responsibility System (IRS). This leaves the responsibility
for maintaining a healthy and safe workplace on the person
having "direct responsibility". Workers, Supervisors
and Management have responsibilities that must be adhered
to at all times. We can help you limit your liability and
ensure the protection of your workers by identifying, evaluating
and controlling your hazards in a pro-active manner.
can assist you by conducting legislative compliance audits,
developing action plans for improvement and assisting you
in the development and monitoring of specific control programs.
This will ensure you stay in compliance with your legislative
and corporate health and safety responsibilities.
OCCUPATIONAL HEALTH & SAFETY
TRAINING & PROGRAM DEVELOPMENT
We will work with you to develop safety programs that are effective, practical and most importantly maintainable for your specific workplace. Initially, Raising the Standard Consulting Inc. will provide you with a true assessment of your workplace hazards and required systems to control these hazards. Through our assessment we will determine where you stand in health and safety and develop the systems that will compliment your organization's daily activities. Secondly, we will provide you with an on-going health and safety maintenance program to help you stay on track.
Creating awareness that workplace injuries are preventable will help to change attitudes about workplace safety and health. Workers and employers are becoming more knowledgeable about the importance of workplace health and safety, and the importance of providing workers with proper safety training and resources.
We also provide web-based training
programs for the convenience of your organization. As well,
our training modules are available in a pictorial format to
