Needs Assessments

When an organization contacts us to assist them with their health and safety System, one of the first questions we ask is where they are at in terms of meeting their health, safety, or quality goals. Quite often the client will state that they are not sure, but know they need to meet legislation and provide a safe working environment for their employees. They know that they have to meet certain requirements, but do not necessarily have a plan of action currently in place.

The SDI Group believes very strongly in ensuring our clients have the tools necessary to meet their health and safety goals. This is done through a needs assessment.

A gap (needs) analysis is a complete review of a company’s organization. Similar to an audit, the SDI Group will review all available documentation, conduct interviews with staff and conduct a thorough observation tour. However, it does not stop there. SDI reviews each area using various media techniques such as pictures, video and 3-D drawings to illustrate to the client where the company’s strengths lie and where recommendations for improvement are needed. After completion, a full review is discussed with the client, with a “go forward” action plan in place.

The success of this approach has led the SDI Team to become one of Western Canada’s leading providers of health, safety and quality solutions.
