What is a workplace safety audit?
A workplace safety audit (or site safety audit) is often conducted to help ensure health and safety in the workplace by identifying workplace risks and hazards and suggesting suitable control measures.
An independent safety advisor can objectively analyse each workplace or site to identify such risks, and provide both evidence-based measures that are supported with relevant WHSQ legislation, codes of practice, industry standards and references to equipment manufacturer specifications, as well as an actionable report of identified risks, necessary legislative compliance and personnel training gaps.
Training plans can then be tailored specifically to address these gaps and requirements, including incorporating them into induction programs.
Our typical focus when conducting a workplace safety audit is on whether systems have been operationally effective and their outcomes. Brief and concise recommendations are then made when required to ensure the outcome is compliant.
Site safety with high risk work
On construction sites for example, where high risk work is happening, such plans may ensure your workplace is safe with a safety audit include control measures such as adequate exclusion zones from hazardous activities or appropriate PPE requirements. Through a workplace safety audit, companies can have a streamlined objective-oriented plan to enable a workplace environment that instils confidence amongst staff regarding health and safety. This is key in providing an overall safe working environment for everyone in the workplace.
By following this system of audit, assessment and training that respects workplace health & safety regulation while still taking into account specific individual site requirements. This will ensure employees feel secure while on the job site.
Being proactive with safety initiatives can save companies money
Companies may also benefit by reducing litigation costs associated with workplace related issues and workers compensation insurance due to targeted training initiatives taken during workplace audits which encourage adherence to WHS compliance standards by employers when managing risks in the workplace.
