Work practices are observed through employee interviews and job shadows to compare to CSA Z462-15.

In addition, a review of polices and procedures. This is followed by a full report including detailed recommendations.

Program Development

Lenco offers complete program development for all industries, including manufacturing, health care, educational, institutional, service sector, commercial and construction.

Lenco will work with management and workers to develop a workplace electrical safety program that is not only comprehensive, meets current needs and standard, but also is practical itself that your workers will follow it. Moreover is incorporated into the overall OHS management system.

Lenco recommends following these steps in the development and in maintaining your program.

PLAN: An organization selects an appropriate industry standard with which it wants to comply. The elements of the standard form a framework of requirements around which an OHS program can be built.

DO: The organization then populates the selected standard framework with comments and reference documents to create a "living document" that gives the real-time OHS program status (single location where all current relevant OHS program information is maintained)

CHECK: In order to determine compliance with the standard and/or to do a gap analysis to identify continuous improvement opportunities the standard framework is linked to an audit tool. The outcome of an audit or gap analysis is a list of recommendations (areas for continuous improvement) that are then tied back to the "living document" (content in the framework).

ACT: Based on the audit or gap analysis recommendations the organization then needs to take corrective action to improve program performance and update the "living document". All corrective actions are also logged to provide an audit trail and to record documented proof of due diligence.

IMPROVE: Drive continuous improvement by repeating this process.
