IRCA is well known for research and development of customized training materials, corporate SHE/Risk manuals, SHE management systems, audit protocols and other educational materials. In addition, IRCA is known for its practical approach to training and finding solutions to critical SHE issues, and it is this thinking that has led to the development of IRCA's books and other publications.

IRCA instructors/consultants and authors have worked closely, at some point during their careers, with Frank E. Bird, Jr., founder and former President of the International Loss Control Institute. It is Bird's innovative concepts and systematic approach that has influenced the current books and other publications of IRCA.
