Go Beyond Safety Inspections - Safety Gap Analysis

The Workplace Learning Systems Safety Gap Analysis is not a traditional safety inspection, it is a three-stage safety culture assessment process. WLS Safety Coaches will compare your current practices, procedures and culture to our SafetySystem. This comprehensive analysis of your facility will allow our safety consultants to make recommendations for improvements and opportunities.

The Safety Gap Analysis requires an on-site review of current safety documents and tools, processes for communication, and time and effort to implement a working safety system. WLS designed the Safety Gap Analysis not only to be an improvement over a compliance driven safety inspection, but also as a safety leadership training and planning workshop event.
