Workplace Inspections and Safety Audits
Workplace inspections are a way of systematically checking that your working environment and procedures are meeting the required standards. An inspection should identify hazards and be your first step in introducing measures to improve conditions. They can be formal, informal, recorded or unrecorded, but what is important is that they are carried out to a set standard at an appropriate frequency.
Inspections are a vital element of any safety management system. They should be used to determine whether you are meeting the standards you have set for your workplace and work activities. They are important because if they are carried out effectively, they allow you to proactively identify and remedy problems before they become more serious or result in an incident or accident.
Health and Safety Associates will undertake individual or a scheduled regime of workplace inspections to suit your companies health and safety policy and management systems.
