Who is TFG?

Jim Foston is the founder and CEO of SafeWork Consulting. He is dedicated to improving the health and safety of all workers in the private security industry through training and promoting innovative solutions. Jim’s career spans 50 years of experience as a public safety and security professional who:

  • Rendered Military Service (Navy                 Communications)
  • Served as Communications Manager for      the Surrey Detachment of the RCMP

  • BC Human Rights Coalition for Security        Officer Training
  • Canadian Society for Industrial Securities –    Pacific Region Chapter (Past Chair)

  • Worksafe BC Education Partner
  • Canadian Society for Industrial Security        (Past National Director and Honorary             Lifetime Member)

His experience has led him to question:

  • Who’s protecting the protectors?
  • Who’s protecting the security officer while the security officer is protecting the client?

Who’s protecting the security employer from non-compliant OHS litigation?

Who’s protecting the client (purchaser of security services) from a host of potential litigation under OHS and occupier’s liabilities?

While security contractors do their jobs to protect their client’s interest, TFG protects all the stakeholders from liabilities that come up when least expected.

Jim lives in Nanaimo, British Columbia, Canada.
