Health and Safety Audit Services
The Corporate Audit of Health and Safety Management is an essential tool, which has been designed to identify a companies position in terms of compliance with health and safety legislation. Health and safety consultants complete comparisons between areas that are performing well regarding health and safety management and those that are not.
The objective of the audit is to compare your current arrangements for health and safety management with recognised standards. This, in turn, will assist you in deciding whether action needs to be taken to ensure it complies with relevant health and safety law.
This enables 'best practice' to be spread throughout the business and, consequently, resulting in progressive improvement.
Advantages of a Health and Safety Audit
It will contribute to your compliance strategy going forward, which in turn will assist you in providing:
- a safe working environment ensuring reduced exposure to criminal prosecution and civil claims
- reduced administration costs associated with legislative compliance.
The Health and Safety Audit Process
Our comprehensive Health and Safety Audit involves assessing the significant health and safety documentation currently held by you e.g. health and safety policy, risk assessments, systems of work/work practices, Training program and records, etc. All of the documentation would be evaluated and the significant strengths and weaknesses identified.
In addition, a health and safety consultant will review existing work practices and methods of work operations internally, externally and across site operations to identify hazards, unsafe acts or conditions, and non-compliance of health and safety regulation.
Health and Safety Audit Report
The findings from the audit will be detailed in a report which will offer advice and guidance on actions necessary
to enable the company to fully comply with health and safety legislation and best practice.
This Audit should be undertaken periodically or at least once a year by all organisations to ensure health and safety compliance and progression in improvements.
