Workplace security is an ever-evolving issue. With different legislation being applied in each province, changes to the criminal code, and the inclusion of foreign police and intelligence services into daily workplace operations, the old days of assigning security duties to an untrained employee no longer meets the “duty of care” expected by the courts.
We have provided many firms with a wide range of security consulting services including C-TPAT audits and training, PIP and FAST training, security awareness training, physical security audits, working alone programs and business intelligence programs for foreign ventures.
We have received 3 best practice awards from US Homeland Security and 2 Best Practice Awards from the Caribbean Security Program
Customs-Trade Partnership Against Terrorism (C-TPAT),
Fast & Secure Transport (FAST) and Partners in Protection (PIP)
For companies that are already C-TPAT, FAST or PIP certified, we provide quarterly security inspections and annual reviews as required by the programs, as well as providing assistance in completing the annual updates required to be submitted thru the CTPAT portal.
For those locations wishing to become C-TPAT, FAST or PIP certified at either the Tier 1 or Tier 2 level, we can manage your application, initial employee training, required CPIC checks, audit, on-site audit and corrective actions as indicated by the U.S. Department of Homeland Security or Industry Canada. We then continue to maintain your program for the length of the contract, combining the program audit with your annual safety audit whenever possible.

We will provide basic security awareness training to employees when required or requested.
Additionally, we have developed a special Independent OHS / Security Audit Program to help sector-specific firms of all sizes to meet a high standard of security and maintain a system of ‘due diligence’.
