Health & Safety Audit Inspection

Inspections and audits both have a role to play in proactive management of health and safety. There is a theory “If you can’t measure it, then you certainly can’t manage it”. This applies to health and safety as with any other management activity.

Health and Safety Management Systems can identify problems where an accident could happen, and identify actions to take before an accident occurs, and make suitable and sufficient improvements to make sure it does not happen.

Inspections should be carried out by someone who is competent to identify relevant hazards and risks and who can read the situation and take assessment of what action is needed to reduce that risk in the first place.

Auditing systems are where:

  • A Competent Person has already carried out the inspection
  • Performed by a competent and independent Health & Safety Proffesonal ideally with a lead auditor certificate
  • To make sure that the important elements are focused on
  • Safety Limits Ltd can act as your Competent Person
