About OPC

Serving clients since 1990, OPC has addressed a variety of unique project requirements with ergonomic and accessibility expertise. OPC consultants implement effective ergonomic, accommodation and accessibility programs and policies. Our past and present partnerships with Fortune 500 corporations to medium size companies across North America are clear examples of our success.

Witnessing the number of employers unable to accommodate employees returning to work after suffering work-related injuries while working in the Rehabilitation Department of a large Toronto Hospital, Jane Sleeth, President of OPC, and her associates made it their mission to correct this preventable and costly trend. That blossomed into OPC, an ergonomic and accessibility consulting firm.

OPC has a deep understanding of corporate operations and strategic imperatives. Our high-quality consultants provide a variety of businesses – manufacturing and assembly, pharma and healthcare, banking and financial, law and consulting firms – with services that meet the unique needs of their specific industries. Customizing programs is how OPC stands out from the rest, offering services that work best for your business and your employees.

OPC understands shareholder requirements that all our clients must meet. We work closely with businesses to ensure programs meet these operational and profit related obligations. Working with OPC, our clients realize long-term and measureable benefits for ergonomic and accessible operations, as well as quality and risk management.
