As an instructor Joanne’s knowledge of Occupational Health and Safety has been invaluable; I’m grateful for the information I’ve garnered attending her courses. Most recently our division benefitted from her services as a safety auditor. She was incredibly accommodating with scheduling and her experienced feedback was a rare pleasure. Joanne goes above and beyond what is required. I would not hesitate to enlist Tally Safety Inc. for my future training and auditing needs, and would encourage my colleagues to do the same.

We just had Joanne do our External Audit. I am impressed with her knowledge, professionalism and willingness to give great recommendations. Also, her honesty for what we are lacking in was priceless. I have only been in the Safety Coordinator position for 5 months with our company and the 3 days spent with Joanne, I have gained so much more understanding and knowledge. Thank you Joanne.
