What’s your first step?

A GAP Analysis is a no-charge on-site assessment of your OHS system performed by one of our professional safety advisors. The GAP Analysis identifies areas where your OHS management system may be improved to meet the Occupational Safety Standard of Excellence (OSSE) standard.

Benefits of a GAP Analysis

Following your GAP Analysis, a safety advisor will present you with a report highlighting the areas where your OHS management system could be improved.

We will work with you on an action plan to determine the priorities to consider in continuing to build on your OHS management system. If you choose, our expert safety advisors are available to guide you in a step-by-step approach to implementing that action plan.

Call 1.604.795.9595 today to schedule a confidential GAP Analysis of your OHS management system.

Training is an important component in supporting the skills and education required for your workers. We can assist your business in developing an effective OHS management system through training both in the classroom and online.
