It’s been a busy year at Pacific Safety

Date: 10th October 2018

We’ve been hard at work and want to share some exciting news with our PacSaf community.

This year marked our first decade in operations. We had our 10-year anniversary on July 19th. For most of us, celebrating a birthday provides a good opportunity for reflection and this was no exception. Pacific Safety is a much different company from when it was just me working away in the YVR basement. We have been incredibly fortunate to work with many great Health and Safety professionals and exceptional, progressive clients who allow us to push leading OHS practices.

Looking forward, we know that the next decade will require us to be more innovative and leading in all aspects of our business. As such we are investing heavily in our people and our processes, including:

Growing our team: Over the past year, several amazing new members have joined the team, bringing with them specialties in Occupational Health and Safety, Occupational Hygiene and Quality Management Systems. Head over to our website to learn more about our growing team, and we’ll introduce them to you here over the coming months. This month we’re excited to profile our new Consulting Services Manager, Mike Pearson. You can read more about Mike in the highlights section below.

ISO Certifications: ISO Certification represents the gold standard for business operations, quality assurance and management systems. We have committed to aligning our business practises with ISO 9001:2015 and ISO 45001:2018. See the highlights below for more information about these two important initiatives.

Expanding our geographical presence: We continue to expand our presence throughout Western Canada as well as taking on new client partners with operations in the USA and Europe.

Increasing our Industrial Hygiene competencies and services: In response to your requests, we have a dedicated Industrial Occupational Hygienist on staff to support you with the development of exposure control plans, confined space assessments, occupational exposure monitoring, asbestos and lead sampling, as well as a host of other hygiene related services.

Here are just a few highlights of our growth
