Here’s what others say about Safety Ahead Ltd.

" “The Supervisor and Representative Safety Training Program is an excellent workshop whether you come as a supervisor, advisor, administrator, or field worker. Upon completion of this course, I found that I returned to my position feeling both empowered and armed with the knowledge I needed to be successful. I felt energized and eager to start passing on the knowledge I gained to both our field staff as well as management. I couldn’t wait to use all of my new teaching tools and techniques to promote and safety in the workplace. I absolutely recommend the Supervisor and Representative Safety Training Program offered by Safety Ahead. I am looking forward to signing up additional team members in the future. I would highly recommend this learning experience to you or your staff. What I liked best about the course was the incredible variety of strategies that were modeled, the insight on legislation, and the incredible learning process of working as a safety team. Allan delivers on presentation and has an uncanny knack of making these strategies relatable to your industry and workforce. It was an amazing learning experience.” – Ryan Latta, Service Experts - Edmonton, Alberta "

Founder and President Safety Ahead Ltd.

Allan HeadSafety and eliminating injuries in the workplace is my passion. I have worked in the construction industry all my life and have seen many people get hurt at work. I witnessed devastating effects on the people around the injured worker. My desire to make a difference led me to focus on safety in the workplace.

As a kid, I really wanted to work in construction. More than thirty years later, I am still living that dream. Over the course of my career, I worked for two major construction companies and in 2007 opened my own business, Safety Ahead, which focuses on safety in the workplace.

During my years in construction, I was involved in safety from all points of view as a worker, an apprentice, a supervisor and now as a business owner. I have several business clients that support Safety Ahead and believe in our products and service. It is so important to produce a quality product. With the commitment to creating safety awareness in the industry, I created an innovative new product called SAFETY IN A BOX ™. This Starter Kit contains everything needed to set up and manage an effective safety program for a company.

A highlight of my career was in 2005, when I received the Alberta Centennial Medal from Alberta Education for significant contribution (apprenticeship and education) that benefited our community and our province. This Medal was awarded to the most outstanding people in Alberta in the last 100 years and it was my honour and privilege to receive it.

I believe in giving back to the community that supports me, so I support many charities including Kids with Cancer, Weekend to End Breast Cancer, Threads of Life, and Devins Hope (Haitian Family Support). When my two boys were growing up, I supported their interests as a soccer coach, Scout leader, and Junior Forest Warden leader.
In all my endeavours, I choose quality and integrity over the easy path. Safety demands that attitude – having a good attitude towards safety saves lives. I always do my best to inform and educate businesses on the key components of safety, quality and production and the three cornerstones of knowledge, attitude and communication that go hand-in-hand to achieve a safe workplace.

I have a dream to make Alberta the safest place to work in North America. Working in a safe workplace means that we get to go home at the end of the day and enjoy the things we love to do. My motto is, “The Road to Safety Excellence is Always Under Construction.”

“Think Safe – Think Ahead”
