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.
