The Health and Safety program within an organization is best achieved through a shared responsibility system known as the Internal Responsibility System (IRS). The Occupational Health and Safety Act (OHSA)is based on the concept of the IRS; it outlines the legal rights, duties, responsibilities and roles of the workplace parties (worker, supervisor, employer).

An effective program includes a corporate safety commitment, builds a framework for Due Diligenceand meets safety compliance and other applicable regulations.

Changes in legislation, environment, technology and human resources will impact the accuracy of existing programs and will require annual review in each subject area. Key elements of a health and safety program include but are not limited to:

  • company policy and commitment
  • worker education, competency and training
  • safety committee meetings
  • medical emergency drills
  • safety manual
  • inspection program
  • reporting procedures
  • emergency response planning
  • accident and incident investigation

We would be happy to assist in the advancement of your health and safety performance by establishing, maintaining and improving your current health and safety management system.
