Institutional Safety Audits
For over 15 years, METRAC has worked to build safety in neighbourhoods, workplaces, institutions, building sites and campuses. We examine all levels of a space – the physical and social environment, policies and practices, services and resources – and create recommendations to improve safety. Input of space users is integral, and we incorporate perspectives of women and other vulnerable groups. We are pleased to work with partners to tailor services to meet their needs.
Audits processes incorporate background research and fact-finding, a policy and practice review, training, audit “walkabouts” and development of safety recommendations. Our institutional audits incorporate an analysis of current best practices and relevant legislation such as Bill 168 on workplace violence and harassment.
