Our four step process

Our 4-Step Process will give you peace of mind that you’re doing the right things – and highlight opportunities for improvement.

Step 1: Needs Analysis

Every workplace is different, and to give you the best advice we start by properly understanding your unique situation and any issues or opportunities that exist.

Our experts will find out about your situation through a detailed phone interview or questionnaire. We’ll talk to you about what you really need, and leave out the things you don’t.

We can provide a full floor-to-ceiling service, or we can provide specific, one-off services – it all depends on your needs.

Step 3: Solution

You’ll get a comprehensive report of our findings. But we won’t just tell you what’s wrong. We will partner with you to implement systems, procedures and equipment, as appropriate, to manage, reduce and eliminate risk in the workplace. We will also partner with you long term to monitor and assess the workplace on an ongoing basis, identifying and eliminating risks and providing quality, reliable expertise.

Step 4: Training
