What We Do

We improve performance through the implementation of management systems, programs and assurance activities.

These programs are fundamental components for proving compliance and improving performance. Our designs and fit-for-purpose methods are guaranteed to successfully implement your programs and achieve your goals.

 

How We Work

We are known as implementation experts because we find the right approach, build momentum and achieve success.

We pride ourselves in being modest, humble and empathetic to your situation. It is never easy for any organization to make change happen, so we start small and work with you to find the best way to achieve success.

Our Core Services

1

MANAGEMENT SYSTEMS

Pipeline Safety Management Systems and Operations Management Systems - In the current business environment, organizations face ever-increasing challenges to meet compliance requirements and manage risks. SPAN designs and implements Management Systems that embed consistent organizational requirements into day-to-day operations and establish a culture of continuous improvement to demonstrate compliance, risk management and performance.

PROGRAM IMPLEMENTATION

Today’s organizations are complex and it is becoming more difficult to design and implement effective programs to manage new requirements, leading to change overload. Our program implementation methods are effective in using the best of our knowledge and experience, matched with your organization's way of operating, to achieve implementation success.

AUDITS & ASSURANCE PROGRAMS

Providing assurance that you are operating safely, meeting compliance requirements and improving operations is a must-have in your organization; otherwise you just don't know. But it must also be cost effective and not overly impact operations, so properly implementing your assurance activities is paramount. Our audits and assurance programs are risk-based, resource-optimized and integrated, helping you achieve a win-win with stakeholders and your organization.

REQUIREMENTS MAPPING

Understanding important requirements that apply to your organization is necessary but almost impossible! You need to know what applies, who in the organization they apply to, which programs address them and how you assure you are meeting them. SPAN has created a unique service where we help you map important requirements to your management system, programs and organization. Using our Octane software Mapping module, we can create mapping reports, develop integrated audit protocols and generate assurance reports for new requirements from existing assurance data.

 

OCTANEIMPLEMENTATION

SPAN HAS COLLABORATED WITH AN EXPERT SOFTWARE DESIGN COMPANY TO CREATE OCTANE. 

Octane is a cloud-based software tool that helps you implement and sustain your management system. You can map all relevant requirements, conduct assessments, track gaps and actions and provide real-time analytics, reports and dashboards, all in one tool.

 

“Our member companies were concerned that their information could be unsecure, and we were concerned we couldn’t scale up our systems as our programs grow; we are solving both by implementing Octane”
