At IPS We Believe In Strong Management, Targeted Programs, And The Best Tools To Do A Great Job

Comprehensive Case Management

In the oilfield industry, safety and the health and well-being of workers is of utmost importance. A challenge which many employers face is the management of injured or ill workers. Prime contractors who are also responsible for injuries and illnesses occurring on their worksite want to be appropriately managing these cases to keep costs and incident scores low.

IPS offers comprehensive and tailor-made third party case management services for employers and prime contractors. IPS’s OHNs are available for 24 hour on-call services for incidents, illnesses and injuries. Our OHNs are skilled in case management, CAPP, OSHA, WCB, WorkSafe BC, and ensuring that confidentiality is maintained at all points during this process.

Through the utilization of this service, employers and prime contractors can expect all injuries and incidents to be medically managed, and reasonable measures implemented to prevent cases from increasing in severity level. This service will also decrease lost time injury and return employees to work sooner. On average, clients will recognize a savings of about 1% of their annual payroll.

Audits & Inspections

IPS has a full time field supervisor’s that audit the on-site operations.

This includes:

  • Equipment and vehicle positioned correctly and ready to respond
  • Paperwork being completed properly
  • Skill Assessment
  • Quarterly inspections are completed by management and reviewed by clinic staff
  • Bi-annual audits are required to be completed by on-site clinic staff and reviewed with management
  • Quarterly safety site visits with IPSs safety lead and management
  • On-site management involvement

Full time QA/QI & Training Manager

IPS is committed to providing quality personnel. 100% of our patient care reports and first aid reports are audited and feedback is provided to each of our medics. In-house training and on-site skills assessment ensures our medics are familiar with processes and protocols and their skills are up to date.

Safety Enhancement Program

For our clients we are dedicated to providing industry leading service and training, so we provide a Safety Enhancement Program, and a Full time QA/QI & Training Manager for each client.

  • IPS offers ongoing statistics for monthly reporting on incidents, KPIs, number of patients seen, type of injuries, off-site referrals, trending of incidents, medical injuries or illnesses.
