EHSP acquires Winnipeg-based Workplace Engineering Solutions to provide more focused services in the Winnipeg area and across the prairie provinces
CALGARY, Dec. 20, 2019 – EHS Partnerships Ltd. (EHSP), a Canadian occupational health and safety consulting firm, announced today the acquisition of Winnipeg-based engineering consulting company Workplace Engineering Solutions (WES) as a wholly owned subsidiary.
Led by professional engineers Kristin Petaski and Mike Gordon, WES designs custom solutions to address machine safety concerns. They specialize in evaluating worker risk, identifying necessary controls, and assessing the effectiveness of those controls to ensure compliance with standards and regulations. They also developed WESguard, a web application that works as a machine guarding tracker.
WES’s technical expertise and services complement EHSP’s already strong OH&S capabilities, including hazardous materials and designated substances consulting, industrial hygiene consulting, indoor environmental quality assessments, legislative health and safety compliance and Certificate of Recognition (COR) audits, workplace safety, and training.
The Winnipeg location is the latest addition to EHSP’s branches across North America. Since opening its doors in 2005, EHSP has grown from a local operation servicing Calgary and area to establishing offices in Edmonton, Ottawa, and San Jose, California.
“This acquisition not only strengthens EHSP’s national presence, but also gives us a stronger competitive advantage,” said EHSP Partner Glyn Jones. “WES shares EHSP’s values of dedication to the safety profession, providing quality work, and creating lasting client relationships.”
“We are excited to offer our services to Winnipeg and across Manitoba, and to introduce WES’s technical expertise to our already established Canadian markets in Alberta and Ontario.”
