Safety Culture
Culture is “the way we do things around here.” Weaving safety into your corporate culture means that health and safety best practices become second nature to your workers, supervisors, and managers. An organization that shares common health and safety values prioritizes its workers’ well-being because an unsafe work environment affects employee morale and productivity. By anticipating unsafe acts and conditions and correcting them before harm is done, your organization can build a strong safety culture that will permeate your day-to-day activities. Our safety advisors can share best practices, techniques and hands-on training to teach you how to enhance the overall safety culture for your workers at all levels.
Hazard Recognition, Evaluation, & Control
One of the “root causes” of workplace injuries, illnesses, and incidents is the failure to identify, recognize, and anticipate hazards in the workplace. A critical element of any effective health and safety program is proactively identifying and assessing hazards. Every worker has a role in hazard prevention by being vigilant in evaluating their work environment daily. Made Safe NL’s safety advisors can help your organization adopt best practices in hazard recognition, evaluation and control processes through training, mentoring, and coaching by incorporating hazard safety and awareness into your corporate culture.
Incident Reporting & Investigation

By understanding the cause of an accident or incident, organizations can take steps to prevent the same from happening again. This investigative process helps create a safer work environment for everyone. Reporting workplace incidents is mandatory in certain situations. Our expert safety advisors can guide you through the guidelines associated with incident reporting and best practices for investigating workplace health and safety incidents to ensure your organization follows guidelines and implements safety measures to mitigate reoccurrence.

Occupational Health & Safety (OHS) Committee

An OHS committee is an important way to improve conditions in the workplace (and a requirement for organizations with ten employees or more). The committee provides a forum for employees and management to work together to solve health and safety issues or concerns. An effective committee can help prevent injury and illness on the job and increase awareness of health and safety issues among workers, supervisors, and managers. Made Safe NL’s safety advisors can help you create your OHS committee or strengthen your current committee by providing guidance, mentoring, training, and coaching.

Workplace Inspections

Health and safety inspections in the workplace are vital in preventing injuries and illnesses. By thoroughly and regularly inspecting your work environment, you can identify potential hazards and implement appropriate and effective solutions before an injury occurs. Workplace inspections are an invaluable opportunity to get feedback and hear the concerns of workers and supervisors, gain an understanding of jobs and tasks, identify existing and potential hazards, determine underlying causes of hazards and recommend corrective action. Our safety advisors can walk you through these steps, as well as how to monitor actions taken to eliminate hazards and ensure your organization is well-informed about applicable legislation and standards.

Early & Safe Return-to-Work

The early and safe return-to-work program (ESRTW) is designed to ensure employees off work due to injury or illness return to the workplace sooner. Helping workers return to work sooner can be facilitated through various approaches, including giving workers more manageable tasks or reducing work hours until they regain their total capacity. Our safety advisors can teach your organization the best practices for ensuring workers return to work safely.

Education & Training
Workplace safety training and education are vital to ensure a safe and productive workplace. Up-to-date training and education help employees identify safety hazards, understand proper procedures, and educate them on how to correct unsafe practices and situations. Creating a safe workplace ensures a healthy corporate culture, improves staff morale and increases productivity. Your organization can be a safety leader by offering training that encourages growth and skills development. We can help you determine the types of training available and which training is mandatory to ensure adherence to provincial and federal guidelines.
Emergency Preparedness & Response

We all hope we never have to deal with an emergency that risks safety. But being prepared for such an event is vital to weathering the storm. An emergency plan promotes safety awareness and shows an organization’s commitment to workers’ safety while also ensuring the organization’s financial health. Our safety advisors can walk you through emergency preparedness and response steps so your organization can ensure you’re ready if the worst-case scenario becomes a reality.

Safe Work Procedures & Instructions
Safe Work Procedures (SWP) outline step-by-step instructions and best practices for safely performing tasks, including operating tools or equipment. By outlining the hazards and how to mitigate the associated risk, you can reduce the chances of experiencing workplace injury. This module will teach how to identify tasks that benefit from an SWP, create and document an SWP, and communicate those procedures and instructions to workers throughout your organization.
Safety Communication

Effective communication is key to ensuring healthy, safe, and productive workplaces. Topics covered in this training module will include how to:

  • Communicate vital information to workers in a clear and timely manner,
  • Ensure roles and directions are understood,
  • Warn against dangers and avoid unsafe practices,
  • Promote critical emergency response, and
  • Create an environment of trust and open communication that promotes worker input and reporting.
Leadership & Administration

Influential safety leaders are safety champions who focus on learning and continuous improvement by creating a climate of trust for employees to report incidents, improve safety, and positively influence safety practices for themselves and their coworkers. Building a safe and healthy workplace starts at the top with managers and leaders who genuinely care about the safety of their workers—your organization’s greatest assets. This course will provide the training and expertise needed to lead by example and ensure your workers know that you care about their health and safety in the workplace and that it is important that they care too. Workplace safety is everyone’s responsibility.

Personal Protective Equipment
Personal protective equipment (PPE) is worn to minimize exposure to hazards that cause serious workplace injuries and illnesses. These injuries and illnesses may result from contact with chemical, radiological, physical, electrical, mechanical, or other workplace hazards. Our safety advisors can assist your team in identifying the necessary PPE for your work environment and ensure consistent and proper use of PPE to mitigate workplace injuries.
