Many of our clients ask us to complete risk assessments of their operations, their physical site and even future projects. As complicated as some risk assessments can be we thought we’d take the time to break them down to their basic components. Recognize – more commonly stated as Identify the hazards or risks. Before you […]

As many of you know, I entered the commercial UAV/UAS world (better known as drones) several months ago. The unfortunate thing is, the only media coverage that really is predominant are those incidents that shine some negative light on what can be and is a valuable tool in a variety of disciplines. This recent incident […]

    So where do I put it?  What do I do with it? Will it last me long enough?  Do I need to get more of it?  When do I need to use it?  Does it go well with other things?   I’m not talking about maple syrup and whether or not you pour […]

So another year has passed.  So what do we know?  Actually, who do we know? One thing I think we know for certain is that the title of “Newsmaker”, especially newsmaker of the year may not be the title you might be striving for or want bestowed upon you, at least not anymore. So for […]

Let it be resolved that some of you will look back at this past year and know that you’ll be reviewing what worked, what didn’t work, what needs to be re-written or added and some of you won’t.  That some of  you will have a new risk assessment completed to confirm already identified risks and […]

Now there’s a question I get asked a lot.  Reasonable question.  Honestly asked.  Pure curiosity.  Not always the easiest to answer. So how have I answered that question in the past?  I’ve tried the formal route: “I’m a consultant that specializes in Security Management, Risk Management and Emergency Management”  Usually followed by the next question […]

Well that just happened.

I really can’t believe this happens. Here’s some context.  I’ve had the fortunate opportunity to interact with, read the material of, and visit several post secondary institutions lately and I can’t understand how this happens. My concerns revolves around spelling mistakes, sending people into possible danger, spending the money and not using it, not sharing […]

I had the opportunity lately to have conversations with colleagues, friends and various business leaders on the topic of bonuses.  Are they effective, how big can they be, who’s getting them (and by who I’m more speaking to the position with an organization and not a specific individual) and the reasons for being rewarded a […]
