Due diligence activity is a legal obligation. It is, therefore, necessary for owners and primary contractors who wish to protect themselves against liability due to an accident involving a contracted party.

This coming winter, most of the construction safety procedures that work in the summer, just won’t cut it. An icy construction site poses unique challenges. For instance, your workers are under completely different types of stress and are always under the risk of developing hypothermia or frostbite. Needless to say, you need a separate safety program for the winter season.
In the last month WSG received a number of requests to conduct detailed, onsite health and safety assessments. When you’ve committed to investing a significant amount of money, you want to be sure that what you get is what you actually need. You want your entire health and safety management system to have all components in place:
It’s no secret that facilities like warehouses, factories, foundries, and construction sites are some of the most dangerous workplaces in the world. Workers in these places are using dangerous tools, handling heavy machinery, and putting themselves through backbreaking work every day!
WSG is available to help companies assess their safety programs to help them avoid stiff fines and penalties for health and safety infractions. When you contact us for an assessment, we take a look at what you are doing well to comply with occupational health and safety law and regulations and, where you may have gaps that need to be addressed.
A health and safety system is not the binder on the shelf or all the right posters on the safety bulletin board. It is the way everyone in the workplace works together on a daily basis to keep each other safe through safety talks, training and actions that demonstrate conscious safety awareness at all levels. In this way safety is not left to chance.
WSG’s mission is to be the resource for safety development, knowledge and information to our clients. We are a group of dedicated individuals working together in the common interest of accident prevention. We have grown from a locally based company in Niagara to become a recognized and established, health and safety resource throughout Ontario.
