The FIOSA - MIOSA Safety Alliance of BC is committed to help employers in the food processing (manufacturing) industry improve their health and safety performance and aims to achieve this by offering Gap Analysis and other support to its clients.

The first step is an assessment of the gaps in your program when compared to the criteria for a comprehensive safety management system. This is called “Gap Analysis”. You need to understand what your program’s strengths and weaknesses are, so that you can plug the gaps and take what is successful to a higher level.
