tailors the critical elements of
a safety process to integrate seamlessly
with a client's business process.
In fact, the unique characteristics
and requirements of a company's
business process determine each
element of the safety process. Our
specialists function within the
client's management team to learn
about company processes and goals.
This information drives creation
of the customized safety process
that enables the business process.
In each case, the goal is safety,
not merely satisfying standards.
Calculus, we liken the business
process to an hourglass. During
initial phases - such as concept
and design - a company's fiscal
commitment is limited, so ideas
flow freely. As the business process
continues, products are refined
and the process narrows.
Production is increasingly difficult
to stop because of the significant
commitment of time and money. Once
a product reaches tooling and production,
the process is almost automated
and control becomes difficult. At
this point, products usually reach
distribution where the company is
virtually powerless to direct where
its product goes, and a recall is
the only option to minimize a safety
Therefore, Calculus institutes a
safety process that encompasses
a company's entire business process.
This ensures products are designed
for safety from the start and that
safety is an integral part of the
entire business process.
