Navigation Consulting & Training was founded by Martin Franchi and Shelly Meadows in 2018 with a focus on providing training and support for organizations, leadership and employees in the area of workplace health and safety.
Fostering and maintaining a healthy work environment makes sound business sense and can differentiate your organization from your competitors. Reduced absenteeism, lower employee turnover, improved employee engagement and productivity are some of the benefits of a business that is fully supportive of health and safety concerns.
Our core belief is that society, as a whole, benefits from a workforce that is vibrant, healthy and safe. Both avid sailors, Martin and Shelly know successfully navigating a course on the water is the key to winning a sailing race. Likewise, organizations must navigate through evolving regulations regarding workplace health and safety as part of their overall success. With workplace stress on the rise and the advent of the #MeToo movement, these are just two examples of specific workplace health and safety issues that organizations need to be proactive in addressing, including appropriate policies and training, as part of a comprehensive health & safety program.
In a dynamic work environment, we know it can be challenging to keep up with health & safety requirements. Policies and programs, that are the cornerstone of workplace health and safety, need to be updated on a regular basis and are ineffective without proper training. Training needs to be ongoing and responsive as new employees onboard and experienced employees are promoted to supervisory levels. With the Ontario Ministry of Labour requirement for organizations to have Joint Health and Safety Committees (JHSC) in all locations with 20 or more employees, certification of the requisite number of JHSC members will also be ongoing as composition of JHSC can change on a regular basis and recertification is required every three years.
At Navigation Consulting & Training we’d like to help you navigate through your workplace health and safety matters as you drive your business to new heights.
