What We Offer:


Internal Responsibility System (IRS)

The Internal Responsibility System also known as the IRS, is a system in which every individual is responsible for health and safety in the workplace. It can be thought of as your organizational chart in relation to health and safety. A clear set of expectations, guideline and responsibilities should be identified, outlined and implemented at all levels of a company’s organizational structure for the promotion of health and safety in every workplace. Accountability and responsibilities are built right into the organizational structure. The people in this hierarchical structure interact with each other to identify and solve health and safety problems and seek opportunities to improve the processes they are involved specific to their workplace. Everyone at all levels of the hierarchy structure must take an initiative in relation to fostering and promoting health and safety in their workplace. As well, everyone is obligated to report unresolved concerns upward and to respond properly to the unresolved concerns of others in relation to health and safety concerns. Identifying and resolving health and safety concerns of any worker is an integral part of a proper functioning Internal Responsibility System.

The Internal Responsibility System states that every individual in a workplace is essentially responsible for health and safety. Every worker, supervisor, manager, constructor, employer and director of an organization or workplace shall have specific responsibilities within their roles to maintain and ensure a safe workplace. All workplace parties must believe that safety is a number one priority for the IRS to be successful.

It sounds simple and is simple as long as all parties believe and work together to achieve “SAFETY”.
A properly functioning Internal Responsibility System holds “EVERYONE” accountable for workplace safety. While many organizations state that “Safety is everyone’s job”, very few organizations have a proper well-functioning IRS. Those that do, however, tend to be the best performers in health and safety. The Internal Responsibility System must become an integral part of the way an organization and or workplace does business daily. Safety must always be a priority and in the forefront for everyone.

Safety Solutions and Recruitment Services takes great pride working with our clients and workers in establishing, promoting and educating all workplace parties in the importance of achieving a properly functioning Internal Responsibility System. Providing proper safety training and education to all workplace parties is only one key element in ensuring the IRS is truly functioning.

Under the Occupational Health and Safety Act it is a requirement that a safety workplace inspection be conducted on a monthly basis. Understanding and identifying potential workplace hazards is a key element in performing a thorough and diligent workplace safety audit or inspection. Properly performed workplace safety audits or inspections conducted by a competent worker on a routine basis have proven to help identify workplace hazards and prevent workplace injuries, illnesses and fatalities. Through critical examination by workplace parties whether it being members of the Joint Health Safety Committee, Health and Safety Representative and or a competent worker, workplace inspections identify and record hazards information in turn providing a corrective action plan to protect the health and safety of all workers. Routine workplace inspections and or audits are an important and integral part of the overall occupational health and safety program and functioning Internal Responsibility System.

Safety Solutions and Recruitment Services recognizes that most workplace injuries occur as a result due to unsafe behaviours or lack of training rather than unsafe workplace conditions. Our safety inspection audits focus both on workplace safety training programs and workers behaviours when performing job specific tasks. Our audits help analyze employee behaviours and recognize preventative measures that may be implemented to promote health and safety of workers. Our auditors walk through the workplace focusing and identifying possible safety risk factors associated with specific jobs and tasks being performed by workers. Our audit system will review safety programs, policies and procedures to ensure that workers health and safety is protected. If safety programs, policies and procedures are not adequate Safety Solutions and Recruitment Services will work with the client in establishing, developing and implementing a new revised health and safety program adequate to our clients’ needs but at the same time ensuring that the health and safety of workers is protected.

Case Study

How many times have we all heard these words?

“…I know what I’m doing, I’ve been doing this for years”; or “I’ve always done it this way”;and the worst of all – “I’ll just…”

But in the time it can take to click away from this page you can have a LIFE CHANGING event at work.

But, I hear you say, “I can’t afford/haven’t got time to do health and safety, I’ve got a business to run…” Many people still see ‘health and safety’ as nothing more than an obstacle to work or play, to slow things down and to get in the way…

This is simply not true.

Health and Safety is NOT about stopping you or your people from working. It IS about making sure your employees are working safely – which is NOT NECESSARILY the way they have always done it.

In other words, 
fewer accidents means less downtime
= more productivity
= more profits

With our help and expertise you can ensure the continued Health, Safety and general well-being of your all your employees, while you carry on with the important thing – running your business and making a profit.
