On-site Plant Audits
Home / Services /
Working in a facility around industrial equipment and machinery requires skill and prudent safety practices. However, what practices are in place after products have left the machinery?
In order to ensure companies are compliant with hazardous material regulations, OSHA or Health Canada, and the US Department of Transportation or Transport Canada randomly inspect plants and warehouses for health and safety violations.
We provide a full Occupational Health and Safety Advisory service.As an employer you are required to manage and control the numerous risks and hazards associated with your industry, and must also be aware of the ramifications of the Acts, Codes and Regulations that govern your workplace. Penalties, fines and punitive litigation for breaches of Occupational Health & Safety and Transportation and the resulting injuries are substantial. Can you afford not to be compliant?
Let us help before the inspector visits!Our comprehensive safety audits and inspections are competitively priced and are an optimum way of increasing safety awareness in your workplace; ensuring peace of mind that you and your organization are complying with all Occupational Health and Safety requirements.

Our comprehensive transportation audits review your process from beginning to end, looking at all 7 steps to compliance with the transportation regulations such as 49 CFR, TDG, IATA or IMDG. Clients receive a report specific to each area of the business, itemized with photos, and pertinent regulations. The report is prioritized so all issues may be addressed as per their importance (high, medium, low). This allows employers to create a safety action plan and to budget effectively in order to address any occupational health and safety concerns.

Once the inspection is complete, the regulatory specialist will draft an extensive report including specific recommendations including any exemptions to ensure full compliance. These also include any exemptions from which you may benefit. Your account manager will then review the report in detail with you, help you understand our findings, and select the appropriate services to solve any problems. If necessary, the regulatory specialist can assist the account manager in delivering the report to a group, so the information is properly understood by all involved.
