Thomson Carswell Announces Launch of SafetySource - the First Complete Online Workplace Safety Tool in Canada

    TORONTO, April 16 /CNW/ - Thomson Carswell (, Canada's
leading provider of specialized information and electronic research solutions
to the legal, tax, finance, accounting, and human resources markets, announces
the launch of SafetySource.
    Beginning with the ABCs of Health & Safety, SafetySource provides the
tools, policies, and best practices to help any organization create a
workplace safety culture where everyone understands and practices safe work
procedures. Combining searchable legislation, a thorough topical caselaw
collection, and expert commentary, SafetySource is the only online solution
available to help Health & Safety professionals understand the law by seeing
it in action, and then put it in place using tried and tested best practices
    A unique feature of SafetySource is the Safety Audit Toolkit that allows
an organization to measure its performance against best practice standards in
six key areas - the Occupational Health and Safety System, Employee
Involvement, Hazard Identification, Hazard Controls, Monitoring and
Evaluation, and Significant Special Hazards. The audit report includes an
action plan with suggestions for each problem identified in the assessment.
    "SafetySource offers a complete collection of best practices, policies
and procedures that are easily integrated into a wide variety of work
environments," said Bob Freeman, Vice President, Strategic Market Groups,
Thomson Carswell. "Moreover, SafetySource not only presents the legal
requirements for creating and maintaining a safe workplace, but provides easy
to understand explanations and expert commentary that will help any Health &
Safety professional build a safe workplace. SafetySource commentary provides
answers to key questions - 'What is the legislation?', 'Does it apply to my
organization?', and 'What do I have to do?', and gives you the tools you need
to implement best practices in your workplace."
    "We are excited to bring this important new workflow tool to the health
and safety community," said Don Van Meer, President and CEO, Thomson Carswell.
"SafetySource reduces the time spent from identifying a workplace hazard to
implementing a legally compliant best practice solution, filling a need that
no other product in Canada currently addresses."
    SafetySource is an excellent complement to any existing safety management
software and is compatible with government sponsored safety audit programs.
