A Message From the President


Loss prevention. That's what it's all about. Preventing loss of revenue from your hard-earned dollar. Preventing injuries to valuable employees. Preventing damage to your company assets.


Let's look at the following analogy: You, the client, do everything in your power to earn revenue for your firm. The money earned is placed in a large wooden bucket. As the days and months go by, you notice that the pail never fills up or overflows. Why? There are holes in the bottom of pail. (equipment damage, WCB increases due to worker injuries, etc).


Ballast Safety is focused on ensuring that your firm has developed and implemented the correct management tools to minimize the risk of loss to you, our customer. Having an unplanned major incident within your company could cripple your firm with fines, prosecutions, and potential jail terms. With the enactment of Bill C45 and the increasing fines for Occupational Health & Safety infractions across Canada, it is vitally important for clients to ensure that they have taken every possible step to perform "due diligence" regarding their company operations.


Ballast Safety will provide each of our clients with professional assistance to determine where the "gaps" in their health and safety program may be, thus enabling a cost-savings in uninsurable loss. If your firm does not currently have a health and safety management program, we are able to design, develop and deliver a HSE program that meets the legislated provincial or federal requirements that you must adhere to.


If you have any questions regarding our services or how we can assist you in managing a loss prevention program, feel free to contact me directly for a free consultation.
