We hired RTS Consulting Inc. to conduct Certification Training Levels 1 & 2, in February 2006. We were very pleased with the service and professionalism of their consultant. We would recommend RTS Consulting Inc. to other companies for this type of training.

Eastern Operations Manager

I contracted Stanford Brown the Founder and President of Raising the Standard Consulting Inc to manage our Corporate Safety Program which included conducting, training, generating and completing all required Provincial Construction certificates and permits. He also conducted and supervised five on site safety specialists during the project. They conducted site surveys for safety control, developed and instituted providence and site safety programs, and conducted industrial hygiene measurements for various hazardous materials. To initiate the project Stanford converted our US OSHA based health and safety manual and training requirements to the Canadian Legislation for Ontario and ensured we met all related regulations during the project.

The project value was $300 000.00 US .

I would not hesitate to recommend Stanford Brown to anyone who requires his level of expertise and leadership.
