Getting the most from your safety program—part 1

Welcome to the first in a three-part series on Getting the Most out of Your Safety Program! Let’s start with a pretty basic question that has […]
  • Boreal's been great. They accommodate whatever it is we're after. It was an interesting process, because they came, they sat, they listened. Once they’d gathered the information and came back to us, we realized how different their approach is. They're designing a program that is specifically for Mid-City. They're not taking a generic quality management program and just altering it to fit; they got the specific vibe of our company and then created something just for us.

    They're just such pleasant people, too. So pleasant to work with. There was never any tension in a meeting. How many clients or people do you work with that you can honestly say you've never felt any sort of tension in any meetings?

  • CFP was interested in procuring an engineering firm to help support the design and structural confirmation of the various fall protection projects we oversee. Boreal has been a great addition to our team and adds value to our business through timely deliverables and by making themselves always available for questions. Additionally, we were happy to find an extremely valuable resource in their safety program development. Deidra has helped us roll out our new safety manual and continues to support our safety program. Excellent service, excellent people.

  • Very professional group who care about your employees and our business. However, it didn't take long to see our concerns were their concerns and all timelines were met or exceeded... getting a regimented safety program in place for our company, employees and clients that met our and the workplace expectations. We feel all our needs are met or exceeded by working with Boreal Services. We would recommend Boreal Services to anyone in the industry who wish to grow or complement their business with regards to safety expectations.

  • I’m having fantastic results with Deidra and Boreal Services. The services provided to me for the last several years now have always been timely, professional and accurate. Operating a small business and all the challenges that come with the territory I know the value in surrounding myself with a team of professionals who can be counted on to deliver. Deidra does just that every time, and that allows me to focus on my business and area of expertise.

  • When Santech Vibration Ltd. was looking for a Safety Consultant, Boreal Safety Consulting was highly recommended. In a very short period of time, Deidra helped develop Santech’s Safety Program, obtain SECOR certification, and overcome ISNetworld issues. And continues to provide prompt assistance as issues arise.
