When performance matters most, Brady Corporation delivers the expertise, quality and reliability companies need to ensure workplace safety.
Since its 1914 beginnings, Brady Corporation (Brady) has been dedicated to developing and providing services that identify and protect products, premises, and people. The corporation was founded by Bill Brady Sr. and is based in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. Now a global company, Brady established a Canadian branch in the mid-60s – recently opening its Toronto manufacturing facility in January of 2017.
Through all of its business endeavours, the company strives to enhance workplace safety. When asked about the company’s vision, Roch Graveline, Territory Manager – Alberta, says, “we intend on being a market leader in all of our businesses, in order to achieve sustainable, long-term shareholder value.” Beyond that, Brady’s products increase its customers’ workplace safety and performance.
Brady believes in a holistic approach to providing services to their clients; from writing to implementing procedures, best-in-class practices are continually adapted to engineer the best possible solution for their clients’ needs. This approach delivers engineered take-off services, which involves an engineer visit to the customer’s facility, where safety sign programs are updated, and lock-out procedure opportunities are identified. From there, appropriate programs are implemented.
Lock-Out Procedures Done Right
Brady’s engineers are masters of lock-out procedures and by utilizing their expertise and personnel, customers are able to maximize their workforce and remain productive in their primary operations. In an industry where safety programs are paramount to operations, Brady delivers what the customer needs for lock-out procedures. The corporation provides a complete solution, including everything from compliance procedures to materials and training, rather than simply providing a component to a workplace safety program. In addition, Brady conducts annual reviews to ensure the efficacy of the implemented solution.
“In this industry, in oil and gas, there’s a lot of custom key and lock requirements that customers want. Our people understand that extremely well,” Graveline explains, “and we do it very quickly. We have an extremely high-performance rate as far as supplying customers with locks that have been keyed correctly.”
BradyConnect Inspection Management Software
Adding to the company’s impressive repertoire of products, the new BradyConnect Inspection Manager assists clients on asset inspection and tracking using barcode data collection software. The product’s intuitive cloud-based software increases productivity, mitigates risk and liability, and ensures data integrity. Developed with the customer in mind, BradyConnect was built to use the devices already available in the workplace and offers continuous improvements to its application. And while this fully integrated software boasts many benefits, it, most importantly, ensures efficient safety and compliance inspections.
Supporting WHMIS2015 Changes
A notable change in the oil and gas industry is that of the transition to WHMIS2015. Come December 2018, all regulated workplaces must completely adopt the new legislation throughout all aspects of operations. As a response to this, Brady provides the support companies need in order to make a smooth transition to comply to WHMIS2015. Through the use of Brady’s software and printers, such as the Brady BBP®35/37 Printer, to update documentation and signage, customers can feel at ease with these mandatory updates, while remaining productive in their day-to-day operations.

Supporting Future Workplaces Today
As part of this dedication to safety, Brady continually seeks insight into the needs of the regions in which it operates. A key method of research Brady conducts are focus groups, where customers collaborate with engineers to update and design products that meet their needs. One such insight is the growing trend towards a visual, cloud-based workplace – a trend that the company has adapted into its services to ensure workplace knowledge is accessible.
Brady remains a leader in its industry. The corporation’s long-standing reputation for high-quality and reliable solutions was earned through consistent investment in R&D, all with the customers’ needs at the forefront of their innovations. From continuous adaptation to industry demands to customer support, the customer is always top-of-mind for Brady. Customers that work with Brady can confidently put their trust in a company that is dedicated to their success, and is compliant to ISO and OHSA manufacturing standards.
