SUDBURY – Nov. 9, 2021: NORCAT, a global leader in the development of skilled labour training and occupational health and safety (OHS) management, and AuditSoft, a software company specializing in the development and delivery of technology-based OHS program development, management and audit solutions, are excited to announce their newly developed partnership. The immediate focus of this partnership will be to assist Ontario-based organizations in achieving and maintaining health and safety accreditation standards.
At NORCAT, Advisory Services works with clients worldwide on a variety of strategic and tactical projects. We are global leaders in health and safety management, compliance and risk management, as well as talent and human capital planning. Our diverse and experienced team delivers innovative customized solutions and expertise to create a positive and lasting impact.
"Advisory Services provides organizations customized health and safety management programs to support risk management and achieve alignment with accreditation standards," states Trina Hayden, director, advisory services. "We are pleased to collaborate with AuditSoft. Their software enhances our client services in performing gap analyses and health and safety management program consulting and will provide our clients with a full solution to optimize their entire audit workflow. Together, we are helping to keep people safe and healthy at work."
The successful implementation of industry-recognized health and safety management programs such as the WSIB Excellence Program, Supporting Ontario’s Safe Employers (SOSE), and COR have proven to significantly reduce workplace incidents. For example, with COR holders having up to 35 per cent less incidents than non-COR holders, the statistics show that proper systems promote workers’ health, safety, and well-being. In addition, it is also proven that organizations whose leadership is actively committed to OHS experience higher worker morale and productivity.
At AuditSoft, we build Infrastructure Health and Safety Association (IHSA) recognized software that facilitates and automates internal and external COR audits. As a result, we create significant efficiencies by streamlining the process using technology-driven standardization, digitization, and automation, saving auditors 50 per cent to 70 per cent of the time spent on an audit.
"Our primary focus with this partnership is to increase adoption of COR through a blended approach of best-in-class consulting services delivered by NORCAT and our innovative AuditSoft technology. In addition, this partnership works to remove barriers to accreditation through increased efficiencies and support services by making the preparation, audit, and certification process less daunting and more achievable," says Ben Snyman, CEO of AuditSoft. "When using our software, SMEs have access to high-quality resources and tech that helps them achieve and manage compliance in their supply chain for a price they can afford, and it gets better every day!"
Together, NORCAT’s Advisory Services and AuditSoft’s software development and implementation teams will combine health and safety management expertise with technology to deliver high-quality and efficient audit and compliance solutions.
