Benefits of Health and Safety Audits

Health and Safety Inspections and Audits are an important monitoring tool to ensure that people are not put at risk by your work activities. In addition to your day to day monitoring and supervision, periodic independent inspections and audits are an effective, low cost way of reviewing your systems and demonstrating your businesses compliance. They can assist you by:

  • Verifying that your systems are working and giving you confidence in your controls
  • Providing a fresh pair of eyes to look at your business
  • Giving you an independent review of your businesses compliance with legislative requirements 
  • Assisting you in identifying any weaknesses before they become a problem 
  • Acting as a means of maintaining and improving your current systems and arrangements

We can carry out simple low cost inspections or detailed audits to satisfy any business need, at any or all of your premises, with generous discounts for multiple site businesses. The inspection criteria can be entirely your choice, but as a minimum it would include a review of the physical aspects of your premises and a review of the documentation found on site. We are also able to incorporate compliance checks to ensure your own systems are being implemented.

The benefits of a simple annual 'health check' far outweigh the costs should something go wrong.
