Wakefield’s services help employers create and maintain work environments, so their employees make it home safely to the people who are most important to them.

Assessing the risk and exposure to hazards is the foundation to any good EHS Program. Without this understanding, occupational health and safety management decisions may be poorly made—and certainly, improvements can’t be measured. The consulting team at Wakefield looks at all physical, biological and chemical hazards that may be present during a procedure, process or operation to determine what controls and employee training will be needed to meet compliance standards and keep workers safe. 

Using our comprehensive understanding of the unique hazards that automation, robotics, and complex chemical formulations can present in the workplace, we observe, report and recommend—helping our clients better understand the issues jeopardizing worker safety and how they can be abated.

We are frequently asked to perform:

  • Risk Assessments
  • EHS Gap Assessments & Audits
  • ISO 14001 Audits
  • Equipment Control Reliability Assessments
  • Personal Protective Equipment Assessments
  • Hazard Assessments and Job Hazard Analysis
  • Radiation & Laser
