Operating Procedures

Count on Ice Cold Consulting for operations procedure writing and audit

Operating Procedures (OP's) are detailed written procedures on all phases of operation, including those that impact safety. At the beginning of your program, your Operating Procedures are written in a general format, leaving out specifics which has resulted in many citations. Ice Cold Consulting will take your operating procedures and amend them to ensure they are up to date with current standards which will result in less citations and increased peace of mind.


Ice Cold Consulting will walk you through these procedures and provide quality standard operating procedure writing services in order to ensure that you meet these requirements, not for fear of being cited but to ensure the safety of your operators.


Operating Procedures: What are they?

The Standard Operating Procedure (SOP) is a procedure specific to your business or operation that outlines the activities that are necessary for completing crucial tasks in compliance with industry standards, provincial laws, or your own standards for doing business. It is the general responsibility of the document to be a procedural document, as it contains essential instructions.

The most prominent example of an SOP can be seen in the manufacturing environment, where step-by-step operations are followed to make products as well as train employees.

The Purpose of Operating Procedures

Implementing this element should aim to achieve the following:

1. Ensure the operating procedures are accurate, thorough, and effective

2. Ensure operating procedures can be readily accessed

3. Verify the procedure is actually followed during the process

The Importance of Operating Procedure

If you want success in your business, you need to establish policies, procedures and standards in the disciplines of operations, marketing, and administration. By doing so, you can create:

  • Increased profitability

  • Consistency and reliability

  • Conflict resolution

  • A safe and healthy environment

  • Protection from potential liability


To determine how to resolve issues, a roadmap must be produced. We do this by creating personalized OP’s. This removes the emotion from the process and allows the focus to be directed on finding a solution. Or solutions will put your business at a competitive advantage.
