HEALTH & SAFETY AUDIT
Can you afford to leave it to chance?
Don't put your employees, the public and your business at risk.
Why undertake a Health and Safety Audit?
Safety audits are an essential part of a successful business. Effective health and safety auditing not only provides the legal framework for compliance, but it also lays the foundations for continuous safety improvement to enhance competitive advantage.
The main duty of our health and safety audit is to look at your organisation’s safety management systems and assess them in line with the chosen criteria. Whilst an audit is used to assess Health and Safety management systems, it is important to view an audit as a positive – it’s a chance to highlight company successes and an opportunity to praise staff for their excellent work.

What the HSE has to say about audits?
The Health and Safety Executive define safety audits as "the systematic examination to determine whether activities and related results conform to planned arrangements and whether these arrangements are implemented effectively and are suitable for achieving the organisation’s policy and objectives".
The independent audit involves the collection of information on the efficiency, effectiveness and reliability of the total health and safety management system and drawing up plans for corrective action.
