We take all OHS factors into consideration, using qualitative and quantitative methods and threshold levels that are easy for your entire team to understand and action.
Once you're comfortable with the Hazard & Risk Assessments, its time to talk Safe Work Practices and Procedures. We compare your company's specific Hazard & Risk Assessments with regulatory requirements, standards, and industry best practices to develop Safe Work Practices and Procedures that are easy to understand and keep your people safe.
We have the process engineering expertise to help you optimize your Health & Safety policies, processes and procedures, including the development of industry standard BPMN Process Map Flowcharts.

When you are looking for safety training, whether it is for highly targeted topics or part of a comprehensive program, our guess is that you don't want to be sitting in a classroom listening to endless theory and wasting time on exercises that don't reflect your professional reality or address your needs. You do want:
A highly immersive, experiential, challenging session, where you not only learn from highly respected people leaders and educators, but from your peers who are also attending, with the opportunity for you to share your wisdom and experience;
An unrelenting focus on real life application to the leadership challenges you face every single day, in real projects, with real stakeholders, customers, clients and your people;
Models, frameworks, tool kits, and processes that you actually get to practice for value during the session, and ample opportunity for in-session coaching, so that you can return to work ready to apply them the very next day;
Follow up and follow through with your instructor and new network of professionals, with ongoing access to webinars, ask the expert online sessions with industry leading guest speakers, online team spaces for sharing, and the ability to bring your instructor back as coach/mentor to work with you and your team in real situations.
