What is a Health and Safety Audit?

This is when an expert assesses a company’s policies, procedures and systems in relation to Health and Safety. The most thorough way of reviewing health & safety management systems is by carrying out an audit.

Audits usually include checking through all your paperwork and documentation; to ensure you have all the appropriate processes and policies to protect your staff and have workplace inspections (including safety measures in place, staff training records and incident books, etc).

They often also include speaking with and observing staff, to gain their insight and check if the procedures and policies are being followed.

Choosing an outsourcing company to conduct your audit often means they have to follow the HSE Managing for Health and Safety (HSG65) and BSI Occupational Health and Safety Management (OHSAS 18001) guidelines, giving you the best standard of audit available.

An external and independent assessment of your Health and Safety systems and policies can give objective feedback and ensures you are legally compliant.

The management of Health and Safety at Work Regulations 1999 requires businesses to undergo a full review of health & safety management systems at least every 12 months.

We offer this as a part of our general Health and Safety services, ensuring your company is safe and up to date with new and changing legislation.

Case Study

A delivery service company named Rogers Transport came to us looking to achieve a Health and Safety accreditation.

Rogers Transport are based nationwide and provides a quick and efficient service for collecting and delivering freights. Since their establishment in 1993, they’ve built up a first class reputation for being a reliable and speedy option, and pride themselves on their delivery times.

Rogers Transport contacted Wurkplace shortly before Christmas in December 2017. They told us that they had a deadline of 20 days to achieve a Health and Safety accreditation, which would allow them to tender for work on a large contract.

Despite it being over the very busy Christmas period, Wurkplace worked willingly to get the appropriate procedures in place, which was communicated to all members of staff. Due to our determination and hard work, we managed to achieve the accreditation within the 20-day period.

Rogers Transport shall be continuing to work with us going forward and have joined our retainer service for Health and Safety. We look forward to working with them for years to come.

“We are very pleased with the efforts from the Wurkplace team to meet the small deadline we gave them. Christmas is a very busy time for everyone and we were very impressed with how quickly Wurkplace were able to get us the accreditation we needed”.
