Workplace Investigations Training for the Safety Professional with Bob Stenhouse
AASP is extremely excited to announce our upcoming Spring Training Session with Bob Stenhouse, Veritas Solutions Founder
Bob Stenhouse is a former RCMP undercover operative. He specialized in homicide undercover, organized crime, and biker gang investigations. Bob was often tasked with the undercover role of hired hitman. Bob made national and international news when he became a whistleblower on ineffective
organized crime strategies.
In the midst of intense burnout and Post Traumatic Stress, Bob made the fateful decision to share media strategy documents with an author who was critical of police leadership and the manipulation of data to receive increased funding from government. Bob was terminated from the RCMP and fought back in
both courts of public opinion and law. He won his case at the Federal Court of Canada and went on to retire from the RCMP with dignity. After leaving the RCMP Bob specialized in workplace and human rights investigations and went on to be a senior leader in protective services and corporate investigations with Alberta Health Services.
The healing journey from PTSD has been long and life changing. Bob’s story and journey has inspired thousands across the country as he uses his personal story to reduce stigma, challenge assumptions and champion psychological safety in the workplace in keynote and workshop formats.
He is the owner of a workplace investigations and training consulting firm and brings together his passions to help organizations proactively grow in psychological safety and mitigate their risks from psycho-social hazards.
