A health and safety audit can ensure compliance with all current legislation related to health and safety at work. It is normally a critical, in-depth examination of an organisation’s health and safety management systems. Health and safety audits can cover the whole system or particular aspects, such as risk assessment procedures, issue and control of personal protective equipment etc.
Health and safety audits are usually carried out on an annual basis and provide organisations with a clear picture of their performance in terms of health and safety management. As a result, remedial actions can be taken before incidents occur. Safety inspections are a less formal method of investigating the health and safety performance of an organisation however a health and safety audit will highlight all positive and negative aspects of safety at the work place.
Health and safety auditors can conduct safety audits on your business, in confidence and without obligation to upgrade or buy.
