What does your company do?

Enform is the health and safety association for Canada's upstream oil and gas industry.

We are developing a consumer-type service magazine focused on our core business: creating safer workplaces and a culture of health and safety in the upstream energy sector. We're searching a effective and creative name for our publication, which will be aimed at workers in the industry.

Content will be approachable, trustworthy, informative and educational. A straightforward and concise tone will impart confidence and assured authority without being directive or paternalistic. We will encourage, rather than demand, reader engagement by providing information that is applicable and easy to understand. Where appropriate, stories will include a clear call to action and provide additional sources of information.

Thorough design, copy and graphics, stories will clearly identify the audience being targeted.

You can learn more about the organization at www.enform.ca. But please note: our magazine will NOT have the same corporate voice as our other existing materials.

Do you require that a .COM or other URL be available for the new name?

I will accept a .com with an acceptable variation on the exact name

Describe your customers

Our target audience will be workers in the upstream oil and gas industry in Canada.

What 3 things do you want your company name to communicate to your customers?

1. We understand them, their work and their lifestyle
2. We want them go home safely at the end of every work day.
3. Our insight into health and safety can help them do that.

List the names of your top three competitors

While many health and safety publications exist, especially in the B2B sector, we feel we'll be charting new territory by adopting a consumer focus.

What character, tenor, or spirit do you wish to convey?

We want our magazine to have a strong male focus without ignoring women. For the purposes of this exercise, our magazine's personality will be: Smart, sharp and confident. We want to be informative but not preachy, supportive not directive. We have a quick and well honed wit, and fully understand that people learn and remember best when they're enjoying what they doing. We're adventurous and outgoing but never reckless. We're not afraid to do daring and even dangerous pursuits, but we assess the risks, get the training and wear the gear before jumping into them. We look out for ourselves and have the backs of the people we work with.

We are still looking for exactly the right kind of magic name.
Ideally it would be one one word, two at the most.
Please do not include website names (.com., .ca or .org).
My thanks to all who have posted so far.
