“My team and I have learned a great deal from our time spent with ORCA Health and Safety. Jason and Karren have a way of understanding where the customer wants to go and then helps them get there. You both make CSE fun when it should be, and absolutely serious when it needs to be. I’m looking forward to working with you in the future!”
“Working with ORCA Health & Safety over the years in heavy industry and now public services has provided these organizations a stronger understanding of what is required from a regulatory perspective as well as what can be accomplished using a practicable based mindset.
I am pleased to have the opportunity to promote ORCA Health & Safety with my peers in differing industries and continue to do so. Areas of expertise my teams have worked with ORCA Health & Safety include; heavy metal exposure management, hazardous material abatement, asbestos management, chemical exposure assessment & control, biohazard control programs, confined space entry / lockout refinement, complex indoor air quality investigations and large complex organizational safety committee effectiveness.
Karren and her staff’s professionalism, knowledge and ability to share their courage with others on tackling some of the most complex safety issues we manage today in business, embraces the importance of working together to a common goal. The credibility that ORCA Health & Safety brings to the table not only helps paves the way for success on initiatives but allows others who watch from the sidelines the confidence that health & safety of the organization is paramount.”
“I don’t normally do this, but I am writing to let you guys know how impressed I was with Jason and Ryan’s confined space course for Fortis BC Victoria. I have yet to meet a pair of guys who were more knowledgeable on a particular subject matter. The confined space procedures your group has created for us has the whole organization talking!! Terms like “Rock-Stars” were used regarding Jason and Ryan!! Highly Appreciated!!”
Knowledgeable, professional, dependent, reliable, committed, caring and generous. Wow! All this and more is ORCA Health & Safety. Over many years of time, NYSA (Nanaimo Youth Services Association) has engaged with ORCA for their breadth and depth of respected training services. From Asbestos or Confined Space Awareness to WHIMS and Fall Protection, even a Job Interview Skills & Practice workshop, these trainings and more ORCA has offered to the Nanaimo’s youth through the service-supports of NYSA. ORCA’s President, Karren, has particularly been helpful to NYSA by volunteering time with us to identify enhancements to various of our programs. When sailing the waters of training services, remember to place your sights on ORCA.
Mid Island Safety (MIS) staff are very easy to work with, supportive and knowledgeable on regulations. MIS performed a number of tasks but primarily were hired to work as part of a team to enhance our existing confined space procedures to meet regulations. External audits have since confirmed that our procedures and processes meet or exceed regulations. As the procedures were being updated, MIS had to amend and develop documents with very little notice and were always able to turn things around in a timely manner. I’ve enjoyed working with Karren and her team and recommend them for helping you with your safety compliance needs!
An excellent professional resource in health and safety that we continuously rely on for over five years providing support with our confined space assessments, air-quality analysis and construction safety support.

This little company packs a huge punch. Karren and her team have always delivered on their deadlines and deliverables. ORCA has assisted Columbia Power with Confines Space Management, Permanent / temporary guarding and ladders solutions on green field and brown field projects. “Orca is just a phone call away“!
I would recommend ORCA Health & Safety to anyone needing a great safety consultant that delivers on time.

The 3 days training that ORCA Health and Safety provided us were, quite honestly, the best JOHS training sessions I have ever sat through, period. The information was provided in such an engaging manner that we actually had a staff member exclaim that she wished the district had offered the course years ago.
I think perhaps the easiest way to sum up the overall feedback for the course is to share with you the statement given to me by one of our principals. She said “Bring them back again next year and I will be here for sure!
The City of Campbell River has used ORCA Health and Safety for many years to provide specialized health and safety consulting and training. They serve as the “qualified person” for all our confined space assessments, as well as providing health and safety advice on many other regulatory requirements that affect municipal operations. We look forward to continuing our relationship with them as they transition to Orca Health and Safety, knowing that we will continue to receive the same high standard of client service.
Karren and her team have always been available at a moment’s notice and I truly believe the services they offer are leading the industry standard. They may be a small company in size but huge in knowledge and confidence. I certainly sleep better knowing we have ORCA Health and Safety support when needed.
