Assessing your safety program needs

Where do you start to build or improve your health and safety management program? We can help guide you through the process by assessing your current program and identifying opportunities for improvement.

Easing the journey – Needs Assessment

The first step is an assessment of your business and health and safety program, comparing it against the criteria for a comprehensive safety management system. We can start with a simple needs assessment, or with a more formal GAP analysis. 

The first step in improving health in safety is to understand what your program’s strengths and weaknesses are—so you can fill the gaps and build on your successes.

What is a GAP Analysis?

A GAP analysis is designed to identify holes in your health and safety management system and provide recommendations for improvement. It’s free for Alliance members and the first step in your comprehensive advisory service. Your GAP analysis includes:

  • A full day onsite assessment
  • A professional, user friendly report
  • A report presentation to highlight priorities
  • Consultation in creating your health and safety action plan
  • Follow up on your plan and ongoing program implementation
  • Ongoing advisory services
