What’s your first step?

A safety needs assessment or gap analysis is a no-charge on-site assessment of your OHS system performed by one of our professional safety advisors. The initial safety assessment helps your advisor understand how best to help you. A more in-depth 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. We offer a variety of courses that range from how to develop your own Joint Health & Safety Committee to Principles of OHS Management, Incident Investigation and Hazard Identification.

New training programs are developed and added on a regular basis to respond to the needs of the manufacturing and food processing industries.

Manufacturing Safety Alliance of BC’s training is discounted for members and is available face-to-face in a classroom setting or online, whatever best suits your organization’s needs.
