Facts & Statistics
More than 90% of all incidents are caused by unsafe acts, and by unsafe conditions.
(Oilfield Safety by Anton Susilo; www.scribd.com)
Reported Injuries have decreased by 40,961 claims from 2006 to 2009 Canada wide).

“Safety Consultant” is a broad term. Generally speaking, our Safety advisors are available for hire on a per hour basis to help you through whatever challenge you’re facing with respect to Health and Safety. Their vast experience and knowledge can be a valuable resource to you, without having to hire someone full time. However, should you require someone full time, we can accommodate that as well.
Custom HSE Program & Manual Consulting & Development
Do you require a Health and Safety Manual? Perhaps you have one that needs improvement. Our safety advisors will sit down with you, determine the exact scope of your business and can build a manual for you that exceeds the requirements of your industry.
Certificate of Recognition (COR) & Small Employer Certificate of Recognition (SECOR)
What is COR? A Certificate of Recognition (COR) is awarded to employers who develop health and safety programs that meet established standards. Certificates are issued by Alberta Jobs, Skills, Training and Labour and are co-signed by Certifying Partners.
Achieving and maintaining a valid COR is required for earning a financial incentive through the WCB Partnerships in Injury Reduction program.
Precede can guide you to achieving your COR through regular meetings and/or consultations and assist you on the road to success through Client Compliance.
Online Safety Prequalification Databases (ISNetWorld, PICS, ComplyWorks, etc.)
Staying compliant with your Clients requirements is a fundamental tool in developing a Safety Program that exceeds your competitors. Your Clients may request that you subscribe to an online prequalification database, where they can view your entire safety program and statistics to determine if you are eligible to bid on a job for them.
At Precede, we can monitor your online databases and advise you of new Client requirements to ensure you stay 100% compliant.
In our everyday business, unfortunately we are exposed to a wide variety of hazards that can drastically impact your Company if they aren’t managed properly.
If one of those hazards were to cause an incident, if improperly managed, that incident can cost thousands if not tens of thousands of dollars, depending on the circumstances.
At Precede, we can teach you how to effectively manage incidents to reduce the cost associated and prevent another incident of similar nature from occurring. Should you experience an incident and are in need of assistance, our Safety Advisors can help guide you in the right direction. We’re just a phone call away.
On-Site Inspections – (Offices, shops, warehouses, storage yards, worksites)
As part of your regular health and safety program, regular site inspections may be required to maintain program compliance. Our advisors can assist you with this and teach you what to do with the paperwork.
Certifying Partnerships Internal / External Audits
Are you due for an audit? We can help. COR/SECOR audits are the whole reason you have a safety program to begin with, in addition to reducing incidents in the workplace. With regular auditing you can maintain or earn your COR Status, reduce the level of incidents in your company and earn WCB rebates for maintaining an injury free jobsite.
