Corporate Program Development
Grantek’s Safety Experts provide consultative services to create Corporate Machine Safety Programs. Typically, program development begins with an evaluation of a company’s current internal safety specifications and standards. Grantek can quickly determine gaps and inconsistencies in whether these current specifications given to machine builders and service providers are yielding the desired expectations or unintendedly producing an “illusion of safety”. As part of our consultation process, Grantek facilitates Specification Development Workshops designed to help companies either update their existing corporate safety specifications or create a new set of specifications to match unique organizational needs.
Grantek also offers consultative services in corporate safety initiative planning. Developing and implementing a best-in-class, sustainable corporate machine safety program involves more than creating documents; it requires a deep understanding of interconnections between manufacturing, engineering, operations, safety, and ultimately your business. Grantek’s approach toward integrating safety into unique business needs is based on our philosophy of improving safety to achieve operational excellence. Our approach at being an industry leader includes participating in the development of industry consensus standards, collaboration with regulatory entities including OSHA, WorkSafe BC, Ontario’s Ministry of Labour and CSST, and being an active leader in industry associations including ASSP and ISA.
Developing a holistic corporate safety program can reduce the need for safety-related modifications down the road. It also drives consistency in all safeguarding solutions. Without a set of well-defined safety specifications, safeguarding solutions and supplied documentation will vary widely from machine to machine.
