Unsafe Work Environments Lead to Injuries 

Many Halifax businesses lack strong occupational health and safety (OHS) programs. Without proper safety consulting, it's difficult to create a positive safety culture or meet Canadian safety standards. This puts your employees at risk of workplace injury from occupational hazards. Fines for safety non-compliance can also impact your bottom line. 

Common safety issues we see in Halifax workplaces: 

  • Inadequate or missing safety policies and procedures 
  • No formal safety training for employees 
  • Lack of proper protective equipment and fit testing 
  • Poor organizational safety culture and low employee engagement 
  • Non-compliance with occupational health and safety regulations 

The impact of an unsafe workplace can be tremendous, from minor employee injuries to permanent disabilities or fatalities.

Keeping workers safe during confined space rescues 

Working in confined spaces such as tanks, vessels, silos, etc. comes with risks like hazardous atmospheres, engulfment hazards, and limited access and egress. This makes rescue efforts very challenging when things go wrong.
