Integral and continuous management (ICM) is an approach that has grown in popularity in recent years. It is suitable for a wide variety of companies when their health and safety needs have grown and are no longer limited to a few targeted themes. At that point, various problems can arise:

  • Health and safety is overloading an internal employee, but is not substantial enough to warrant a full-time hire;
  • Various areas of health and safety expertise is required, which involves coordinating the efforts of different OHS partners, who must first be found one by one;
  • OHS managers have difficulty keeping up with the company’s growth or fluctuating needs
  • Etc.

In all cases, ICM is an effective, flexible and, above all, cost-efficient solution. You can choose to add our resources to your internal health and safety team, or assign us to manage this entire aspect of your business.

The ICM will give you immediate access to a host of resources:

  • The presence of one of our experts in your workplace on a regular basis, at a frequency that suits your needs (ex: 1, 3, 5 days a week, etc.)
  • By extension, the knowledge and know-how of a team of 40 OHS advisors and trainers
  • An experienced manager, who will coordinate the efforts of everyone involved and get to know your business inside and out

As we do every time we provide a service, we will develop an action plan once we have taken the pulse of your health and safety situation and discussed your goals and expectations with you.

  • Access to expertise in all areas of health and safety from the same place
  • The involvement of an experienced manager in all phases of the action plan (planning, execution, follow-up, etc.)
  • Access to more than 150 health and safety training courses
  • The implementation of key performance indicators (KPIs)
  • A participatory management approach with your employees
  • A coaching service to help you manage the changes in your business
  • Ongoing telephone support
  • A customized service precisely adapted to your needs and limitations
  • The peace of mind that your company is compliant with current health and safety standards

Good to Know

Integral and continuous management (ICM) can be a solution of choice in many situations.

Hiring a health and safety specialist is always a good idea. It allows a company to ensure the implementation and management of a prevention program that will benefit employees and subcontractors.

However, hiring a single person has some drawbacks.

Health and safety is a very broad field, so it’s rare that a company can boast founding an OHS specialist with the in-depth knowledge of all the topics impacting the company (e.g., industrial hygiene, machine safety, ergonomics, emergency measures, etc.). Besides, if the person is absent (vacation, illness) or they leave the company, the health and safety expertise will suddenly disappear.

For companies whose small size cannot justify hiring an entire health and safety team, the advantages of outsourcing health and safety to Santinel are obvious: continuous service throughout the year, and access to the knowledge of a vast team of OHS trainers and advisors, including engineers, firefighters, ergonomists, industrial hygienists, adult education specialists, etc.

Instead of hiring one employee, you hire a whole crew of experts…at a much lower cost.

We will be with you for as long as you want. Some of our clients love the peace of mind this service provides them and renew it year after year; others use it until their situation stabilizes, after which they use our coaching services to prepare for a return to complete autonomy.

The beauty of ICM is its flexibility: it is suitable for companies of all sizes and across all industries. If your needs increase, our services will increase at the same rate. If they decrease, we’ll space out our presence, but we’ll be with you until you feel ready to stand on your own two feet.
