Personal note from Founder and CEO Theo Heineman, CRSP, CHSC, B.Sc.Ag


Starting a company was not the plan; I was content working as a Safety Consultant out of my house with no overhead. In 2008, three numbers changed that:


  • 50% of companies failing their COR safety audits
  • 43 worker fatalities (Manitoba)
  • 1 company bankrupt directly related to their safety record

I witnessed small and medium sized companies struggling with limited internal safety resources.  If they hired external help, sadly, anyone can call themselves a "safety professional" and oftentimes the services were substandard. 

I felt a call to change that and more importantly I wanted to find a way that no business owner would ever have to say, "I can't afford to protect my people and my business" and that their Safety Management System would be high quality and correct. 1Life Workplace Safety Solutions was born.  


Today, 1Life Workplace Safety Solutions has been specializing in proprietary workplace safety management software and related consulting services for over 10 years.  Our awards and recognitions include: 

  • Four time Canadian Society of Safety Engineering for Excellence  award (software development
  • Canadian Safety Leader of the Year Award Finalist
