See What Our Clients Think
Craig has been working for me since 2008 and has made safety simple and easy to understand. He has a common sense approach, is well liked by my logging crew and we look forward to seeing him on site once a month.
Craig was instrumental in helping us achieve our “SAFE CERTIFIED” company. I was overwhelmed with the whole thing. Craig has a way of making it interesting and has a personality that engages the workers on our site. He has helped us to instill a positive attitude about safety. The workers and I look forward to him showing up on site. They always have something to contribute to the meetings.
When I was required to be SAFE CERTIFIED” by the Licensee I was working for at the time, I wasn’t sure how to proceed. I took the two day safety course through the BC Forest Safety Council, was given a binder and was suppossed to build a safety program from it. I called Craig Kennedy, Kennedy Forest & Safety Consultants, and he set me up with a great safety program, easy to use and he helped me to implement it effectively.
I still don’t like doing the annual audits, so every year, I hand Craig my box of Safety meetings, site inspections etc, and have him put the audit together and send it down to the council. Why would I do it when Craig offers that service. He also sends me updates for new forms or any documents that will simplify my daily safety requirements. Kennedy Forest & Safety Consultants are genuinely interested in seeing my company succeed. I would recommend Craig Kennedy to any new or existing company in the Safe Companies program.
We recently hired Craig to act as a road marshal on a contentious section of the road involving both industrial and public traffic. Through Craig’s presence on the road and the interactions he had with drivers we were able to identify the issues and effectively change driver behavior, making it safer for all.
I always found it hard to start a safety meeting with my crew. I was never sure how to start or what to say. Craig sends me a safety meeting each month with a topic to discuss and incidents and close call specific to my business. I print the safety meeting, take it to the bush and it spurs more conversation among my crew. It’s a great way to ensure the monthly requirement for a safety meeting gets done.
Our new Health and Safety Program works for us because it is a much simpler program and a lot less paper work than our previous Safety Program. Every employee in our office likes the smaller and more simple program.
Craig made my companies “SAFE CERTIFICATION” easy to understand and implement. My guys and I worked with Craig when he showed up on site to ensure we had a good solid functioning safety program. He has the ability to get everyone on board with the safety program and promotes a genuinely positive attitude towards safety.
