Health and Safety Audit

Health and Safety Audit – Exeter, Devon and the Southwest

A health and safety audit is a review of your health and safety management system and safety culture to establish your current legal compliance and identify areas for improvement.

Health and Safety audit assists a business by helping to raise health and safety standards, maximising efficiency by helping to reduce lost time and resources which in-turn lead to maximising profit margins.

What does a Health and Safety Audit involve?

A Safety Audit will typically involve a systematic review of 3 distinct areas:

  • Health & Safety Documentation, e.g. Health & Safety Policy, Risk Assessments, Training Records, inspection and maintenance records
  • Management and employee attitudes to health and safety. Assessed through discussion with Managers and staff, compliance with work procedures
  • Observation of work environment standards, e.g. housekeeping, machinery guarding, use of PPE, etc.

What is the outcome of a Health & Safety Audit?

A good Health and Safety Audit will include an Action Plan with recommendations for improvements, together with suggested timescales.
