A Note about Our Travel Policy

Canadian passport

We believe trav­el gives us a broad per­spec­tive both per­son­al­ly and pro­fes­sion­al­ly. Our focus is glob­al. Our eth­i­cal posi­tion is clear; we believe in the health and safe­ty of ALL peo­ple. We believe in the pow­er of sci­en­tif­ic data, and in the pow­er of con­nect­ing with oth­ers glob­al­ly, so we might learn from one anoth­er.

Com­pli­ance inSight Con­sult­ing Inc. began 17 years ago; we spend our time work­ing to help ensure the safe­ty of peo­ple who work with machin­ery. We have clients whose busi­ness­es span the globe, but most are in North Amer­i­ca. And as many of our read­ers know, Doug has always been active with­in the glob­al reg­u­la­to­ry com­mu­ni­ty, rep­re­sent­ing both our indus­try and Cana­da. (Doug has occa­sion­al­ly found him­self on more air­craft in a month than many air crews!)

New Travel Policy

The cur­rent US admin­is­tra­tion has made trav­el to the US prob­lem­at­ic or even impos­si­ble for many. Our com­pa­ny and many of our col­leagues are among those affect­ed by these deci­sions, as the glob­al com­mu­ni­ty scram­bles to deal with what has become a dai­ly onslaught of shift­ing US pol­i­cy deci­sions. As a result, we have decid­ed to stop trav­el­ling to the US, effec­tive imme­di­ate­ly, and for the fore­see­able future.

Our Solution

Our clients from the US are our friends and neigh­bours, and we are still here to help.

We will con­tin­ue to offer a vari­ety of web-based solu­tions to our clients, pro­vid­ing train­ing and con­sult­ing ser­vices via web meet­ing soft­ware, phone and email. We are cur­rent­ly inves­ti­gat­ing cloud-based edu­ca­tion solu­tions so we can offer a com­pre­hen­sive online train­ing por­tal. We will con­tin­ue to serve our US clients as we have in the past, we just won’t be stop­ping by for a vis­it for a while. We hope you under­stand.

Fall 2012 Seminars!

Training eventI promised in an ear­li­er post this sum­mer that we would be launch­ing open enrol­ment cours­es this fall, and we’ve done it! We have all of our cur­rent sem­i­nars list­ed on the Com­pli­ance InSight Train­ing pages.

We are offer­ing two cours­es this fall in three loca­tions. They are:

Novem­ber, Port­land, Ore­gon — Intro­duc­tion to Risk Assess­ment

2013 Seminars

In the new year we are con­sid­er­ing a num­ber of top­ics for 1, 2 and 3-day sem­i­nars, includ­ing;

  • Intro to CE Mark­ing for Machin­ery prod­ucts
  • Appli­ca­tion of CSA Z432 Safe­guard­ing of Machin­ery

We are very inter­est­ed in your inter­ests and con­cerns. Leave a com­ment or email me about the top­ics you are most inter­est­ed in for 2013!

Get the Basics Right!

For more than 15 years I’ve been teach­ing peo­ple about risk assess­ment, machin­ery safe­ty and CE Mark­ing of machin­ery in pri­vate, onsite class­es and through pre­sen­ta­tions at safe­ty con­fer­ences. Things are about to change!

This fall, Com­pli­ance InSight Con­sult­ing will begin offer­ing open-enrol­ment work­shops in CE Mark­ing, Risk Assess­ment Func­tion­al Safe­ty, and Machin­ery Safe­ty, all with a focus on indus­tri­al machin­ery. These cours­es will be hands-on events, with stu­dents engaged in work­shop activ­i­ties through­out eachTraining event event.

In the win­ter, these work­shops will also migrate to our on-line edu­ca­tion plat­form, so stu­dents in any loca­tion around the world can access our train­ing pro­grams.

This is an excit­ing step for CIC, and the work­shops we have planned are engag­ing, dynam­ic and infor­ma­tion packed.

Watch the blog, and sub­scribe to our mail­ing list to be the first to know when reg­is­tra­tion opens. Work­shops will be lim­it­ed size, first-come, first-served. We’ll announce dates and loca­tions in ear­ly August!
