Health & Safety Audits

Hazard Audits should be carried out on a regular basis, usually every 3-6 months.

Safety and Injury Prevention Solutions Ltd. (SIPS) undertakes these kinds of audits regularly with many of its clients. The audit involves one of our qualified Occupational Safety & Health Consultants visiting the workplace and carrying out an inspection. This usually takes between 1 - 2 hours to complete (depending on the size of the premises). We have specialised audits for different types of work sites eg, office, factory, industrial, warehouse, construction, etc but following is an example of different areas covered in a general audit:

  • Floors (walking and working surfaces)
  • Aisles and Pedestrian Passageways
  • Maintenance Platforms / Mobile Scaffolds
  • Ladders
  • Stairs
  • Exits / Egress
  • Roadways
  • Ventilation and Extraction
  • Lighting

  • Machines and Equipment on site

Following the audit inspection, a full written report is given. This details the findings of the inspection (any hazards are identified), as well as recommendations for any areas that need attention.
