Thank you for visiting our website. Every day we are approached by people who are frustrated and overwhelmed with their paper or spreadsheet based safety tracking systems. They describe the horrendous amount of stress associated to reporting to senior management, identifying trends, training due and the hours upon hours of work required to produce their LTI/TRI. Audits are painful and very time consuming. They long to have a much more simplified system which is built to their unique circumstance. Of course budgets are also of concern, so on top of needing a system which is comprehensive and flexible, you need to be cost effective.
Often times there are just a few people making inconsistent entries and that is the root of the issue. They tell us they need one point of reference with several points of access all on a consistent and easy to use platform. They need a world where many are participating in making their safety program effective and identifying areas of improvement. If asked what they would do with the time they save, they all answer the same way – take on a more proactive role and spend their time promoting continuous improvement.
We were once in your shoes and we are happy to tell you that over the course of decades with the help and feedback from many clients and thousands of users, we have developed solutions which are tried, proven and true. We take great pleasure in providing clients with a viable solution and watching their success.
Our clients have told us many reasons for needing a safety system, here are the top 5:
If we examine the Wikipedia definition, in essence it is described as an organization’s comprehensive process which identifies hazards and mitigates the risk, while maintaining that the controls put in place are effective. The process involves goal setting, planning and measuring of performance. Seems simple enough, but the myriad of components for each step of the process, makes it extremely complex. Establishing policy, organizing, planning and implementation, evaluation and action for improvement are all involved. Now let’s introduce the safety stack or the framework for a successful safety management system. There is another level of complexity – Administration, Procedures, Manual, Handbook, Orientations and Training, Inspections, Meetings, Standards and Regulation.
Our clients have told us that we provide the “framework” which makes the organizing, planning and implementation that much easier. S2 Products provide an organized platform where each component is tracked by a module. The modules work together which eases the measuring of performance within each category. Reports and charts, or as we call it “the proof” are always just a few clicks away.
The SMS should at a minimum, meet or exceed legal obligations and ensure you are looking at all the risks associated to your organization. A properly implemented Safety Management System will be the single point of reference with several points of access which makes your standards transparent and consistently measures performance following your guidelines. Your SMS should assist in promoting the safety culture within your organization.
Every organization, large or small, all industry sectors, for profit and not for profit, need a safety management system. The ever increasing and changing regulations (law) must be followed by all sized businesses. Our S2 product clients vary in size from 10 employees to 35,000 employees and are in a number of industries such as oil & gas; construction; manufacturing; transportation; government; aviation; distribution; mining; and forestry.

Most of our clients choose the web-based option, on a secure dedicated server hosted in the country of their origin as opposed to in the Cloud (physical location unknown). Our SaaS solution S2Web Corporate™ is accessed daily by thousands of users via laptop, tablet, iPad, desktops, and cellular devices.
Some of our clients have their safety management system on their local area networks, and some just on their laptops or stand-alone pc’s. These clients typically use S2ConsoleTM.
Our clients come to us when they can no longer manage their programs with a silo of spreadsheets, pieces of paper, and ever changing regulation/standards and client requirements. Implementation tends to be just prior to or just following re-structuring, growth, and/or in slower periods.
