Safety Program – Build In-house or Buy

If your company has decided to implement, revise, or update a safety system, you are frequently faced with whether it should be created in-house, or by a third party safety consulting company. With this decision a business owners need to look at its organizational and decide if building an in-house system would be better than what’s available in the market.

Building a complete and effective health and safety program for your company can be a complex process. Some key things your company should evaluate when to build vs. buy are; time, price, long-run support, and trial and error.  We look at these a little more in depth below:

  • Time, Price and Resources – What is the timeline that you need a safety program completed in for your company. Building a health and safety program from scratch is a time-consuming You need to ask yourself if you have the manpower and knowledge within the organization to complete a full health and safety program within the allotted time.
  • Will an in-house program grow with your organization and support you in the long run? When an organization grows, it’s important that the safety system grows with it. Even though the program might work well for you today, will it fit your business after future growth? If your company is moving from a SECOR to a COR or switching certifying partners, does your company understand how to make this transition smoothly.
  • Trial and Error – When creating your health and safety program it may be hard to define what works compared to what works well. This trial and error period could take months of trying different techniques to find what fits your company, which in turn means more money out of your pocket. An in-house system may not adhere to legislative requirements and can quickly become a burdensome task. By analyzing your company’s needs, a third party vendor will be able to provide you with a program that’s built solely around your needs and wants. If you are not confident in performing safety analysis on tasks, hazards and controls it if often best to consult with a third party safety consulting company.
