I am the owner and primary consultant with Transmit Safety. Yes, that's right - I too am a small business owner so I can directly relate to you and your needs.
I am a Canadian Certified Safety Professional (CRSP) who has been working in occupational health and safety for 14 years gaining an in-depth understanding of the factors that influence occupational health and safety through experiences in various sectors of the construction industry. This experience can be applied to your organization, and as an external consultant, it is my goal to be your effective change agent.

Take what you know about health and safety programs and throw it out the window.
Ok, maybe not everything, but generally when I talk to business owners the biggest comment is "safety is too expensive" and I get it. I really do. What I would like is to shift your thinking about health and safety as a loss to value generating. There are too many "safety in box" solutions out there for small business owners; sure it's easy and quick with a "download and go" set-up that mets legislation or industry standards; but in the end these types of programs do not help you or your business and most importantly it does not support cultivating health and safety within your organization. On another side, I've seen far too many programs where someone was tapped on the shoulder to be the "safety person" and only after receiving a few courses, if any at all, were responsible for the management of the program. This is no fault to them, without the proper training, practicable experience, and coaching it's difficult to navigate. That's why it's important to receive the right support at the right time during your program development cycles. Don't worry. I can help you.
Generally, one of the first things that I recommend small business owners do is review your policies and procedures. These documents should be written specifically for your unique business needs - the who, what, when, where, and why. The next thing, I recommend is to see ask yourself "how is my health and safety management system contributing to my business goals?" This is key because your core values are what drives your operational decisions and I will bet that if you don't have health & safety listed as a core value that it's there hidden behind terms like excellence, integrity, or quality.
We will work together to figure what what approach works best for you and your business; set goals and targets; and ultimately move your health and safety management system from a loss to revenue generating.
