Assessing my Program

You have developed a foundational health and safety program, let’s ensure legislative compliance. 

Evaluate Your Program Implementation

The “Start Your Program Development” foundational elements, when combined together and applied to a continuous improvement model, such as Plan-Do-Check-Act, provide the opportunity for you to monitor, evaluate and improve your program. Don’t wait until the program is fully implemented to check progress, rather consider an assessment process that allows you to check your program throughout implementation and/or at key milestones.

The CCSA is committed to helping organizations meet legislation and improve health and safety for all workers.  The CCSA Health and Safety Program review is meant to help you identify areas for improvement in your organization’s overall health and safety program and discover any gaps that may exist that could hinder compliance with OHS legislation; both existing and new legislation.

Note: This review is meant to help you improve your workplace health and safety system and determine gaps and opportunities to better meet OHS legislation; it does not address the entirety of the Occupational Health and Safety Act, Regulations and Code.
