In August 2021, two Canadian-based businesses came together for a common cause. The safety & compliance-based solutions supplier, Strategic HSE, joined forces with fleet management system provider, Titan GPS, to ensure that companies in the transportation sector have complete visibility into daily activity while maintaining health & safety standards. Titan GPS grants customers the location-tracking hardware, and data-collecting software, to oversee field operations (Dash cams, HOS Tracking, GPS data). Strategic HSE injects their wealth of knowledge in transportation and occupational health and safety compliance, maintenance, and training by understanding government policies and regulations.
Strategic HSE’s CEO and Founder, Samuel Elkins, is also a Registered Professional Forest Technologist in Alberta, and through his experience, he’s garnered a deep knowledge of the legal aspects and safety codes within the transportation and forestry industries. So much so, that Strategic HSE has attracted the business of companies like Pineridge Transport, STAT Energy Services, Peace River Transport, Peace River Logging LP, and many more satisfied customers. Let’s take a look at the benefits that Strategic HSE clients enjoy when conducting business throughout Canada.
How Does Strategic HSE Help Carriers Maintain Compliance?
Possessing the “vision to empower [our] clients to operate with confidence in a healthy, safe, productive, and compliant manner,” Strategic HSE has developed a platform for evaluating and maintaining industry standards for carriers in the transportation, delivery, and logging sectors. By evaluating issues with safety analysis, negotiating with government entities, and providing auditing expertise, Samuel and his team yield rave reviews from happy customers industry-wide.
After realizing the potential Strategic HSE had to provide health, safety, and compliance solutions for fleet businesses, Titan GPS knew that customers would see the same benefit from this partnership. With a strong understanding of transportation regulations in Canada, Strategic HSE keeps carriers and drivers compliant with:
NSC Carrier Safety and Maintenance Program Development
NSC Driver Training Programs
Incident Investigations & Post-Incident Drug and Alcohol Testing
Data Management Including:
Truck/Trailer and Driver File Management
Monitoring Hours of Service – under both Provincial and Federal legislation.
One of Strategic HSE’s biggest strengths is the ability to create a Safety Management System (SMS) that caters to specific industry standards. They’ve worked with Digital Action Tracking System (DATS) to create economical, user-friendly software that maintains functionality in and out of cellular/satellite service areas. These features alone simplify life for businesses of all sizes, but there are even more advantageous attributes for companies in the transportation industry.
