Audits and Inspections
Safety audits are essential for any industry because they are designed to keep people safe, improve operational efficiency and compliance and reduce maintenance costs. The findings are used to improve safety, help with equipment scheduling and set budgets among other things.
Systematic and independent auditing helps you evaluate your workplace health and safety system and test its’ effectiveness against known standards. through undertaking auditing on a regular basis organisations will improve their health and safety management systems. While many organisations undertake their own internal audits, it is beneficial to use a third-party independent auditor like OHS Dilligenz to verify a programs veracity .
Safety Inspection vs Safety Audit. ... Safety inspections look for hazards, risks, and other issues that might prevent a company from operating safely. Meanwhile, safety audits examine whether programs and strategies are meeting a company's goals. Both are important components of an effective safety management system or plan.
Safety Auditing can provide many outcomes according to specific client requirements. Safety management system audits provide confirmation and verification of the effectiveness of a safety management system, identify corrective actions and demonstrate to stakeholders that the system is being implemented and monitored. Whereas product safety audits evaluate a specific product, its’ manufacturing process and its’ application in the hands of the end user.
