Workplace Health and Safety Audit

What is a Workplace Health and Safety Audit?

An audit involves collecting information on the efficiency, effectiveness and reliability of the total health and safety management system and drawing up plans for corrective action.

  • An assessment of the organisation’s safety management system
  • A review of all relevant documentation
  • Interviews with key personnel
  • Walk-though inspection
  • Preparation of a report of findings and provisions of prioritised recommendations in order to ensure compliance with health and safety legislation, guidance and best practice.
