Hundreds of workplaces across the United States and Canada are safer places to work because of Purcell Enterprises’ passion for prevention. Purcell works with companies across North America and in a wide range of industries, showing managers and employees how to make safety a core corporate value.
Purcell’s principle, Barbara Semeniuk, becomes her clients’ partner in safety, encouraging health and safety through education, research and application. In her more than 20 years as a health and safety consultant Barb has conducted more than 500 health and safety audits of companies of every size and in a wide range of industries, including construction, food processing, oilfield, trucking, retail, security and manufacturing. She has taught auditing skills at Red Deer College, for the Food Processor’s Association, the Manufacturers’ Health and Safety Association and the Alberta Construction Health and Safety Association (ACSA).
Barbara brings together all this expertise into an integrated whole—with prevention always the focus—to help companies ensure the health and safety of their employees, comply with government regulations, save on Workman’s Compensation and health and liability insurance costs and attract and retain the very best talent. She firmly believes that the proper use of health and safety audits, and other initiatives such as the Balance Score Card Measurement System and the Hardiness Factor, reduce the terrible human cost of incidents and gives management an accurate measurement of their Occupational Health and Safety Management system.
Besides being a safety professional and educator, Barbara is an accomplished author. Her newsletter and articles are valuable resources for anyone concerned with safety. And her book, Everything You Ever Wanted to Know About Safety But Felt Too Unsafe to Ask, has become an important handbook for clients and safety professionals alike.
