Carbon Safety Solutions, Nanaimo

Carbon Safety Solutions is a small Vancouver Island based consultancy focused on helping clients to assess and improve the health, wellness and safety of their employees and the environment they work in and influence.

Our focus is on working with a team within the organization to collaboratively identify and assess hazards and the degree of risk they pose.

Much like the carbon molecule is the foundation of most known life, hazards and their management are the foundation of most safety.

Safety is the relative absence of hazards and risk.

Assessing and Adapting

Carbon Safety Solutions will work with your team to assess your current practices, standards and procedures and identify benchmarks, and areas of improvement, to help adapt your existing system, and components to meet a variety of identified needs.

The intent is to get our clients tracking in the right direction, establishing and continually improving hazard and risk management practices that are recognized throughout their workplace, industries, regions and in some cases internationally. The following are some of the aspects of the assessment and improvement process:

  • We will collaborate with your team to assess your organization's needs, whether it’s an entire framework, a process, procedure, or tools to manage hazards and risks in the work place in whole or part.
  • Discuss which mechanisms can best help meet those needs considering; ISO 14001 & 45001, COR, CSA & ANSI standards and Industry best practices.

The Carbon Safety Model

We have developed a safety model to help organizations to identify and manage hazards and risks.

Carbon Safety Model

The model is based on William Haddon's simple model of identify the energy (or harm), identify the target that may be exposed to the energy/harm, and apply interventions, barriers, and controls of space, time, and physical separation between the target and energy or harm.  The model focuses on:

  • Current hazard practices (those that work well,  those that need improvement, and those that may be missing)
  • Collaborative approaches to identifying interventions and controls to separate energy and harm from people, environment, equipment etc. through the use of working groups, workshops, and team engagement, and collaboration
  • Focus on identify sources of harm, targets, and means to manage them considering safety related risk, interventions, barriers, and controls, and defining safety expectations, and safety knowledge
  • Ongoing monitoring and adaptation to aspects of the organization, and environment that may influence organizational safety
  • Sustaining a healthy culture of hazard and risk management

The Carbon Safety Model can be used to manage a range of workplace harm, from all known and foreseeable hazards in the workplace, to individual hazards such as mental health, Covid-19 and other pathogens, to energy harm such as electricity, or physical harm such as vehicles, falls, or other traditional workplace hazards.

If you’re interested in a brief overview of  how the model can support your organization please email us at info@carbonsafety.ca or call us on 250 734 1373.
