Auditing - the
measurement of good health and safety
Having measures in
place to deal with health and safety matters is for nought if
they are not used. It is a common misconception that all a
company needs to get through a random HSE inspection unscathed
is to have a policy and some risk assessments. SafetyWise
knows from years of experience that inspectors want to see
evidence of how things are done - not just the words on paper!
will, at your invitation, examine the systems you are
presently operating against current legislation and standards.
We will give you a detailed breakdown of the good points and
the not-so-good, and there is no scare-mongering here - just
the honest facts.
We have yet to
audit a business that is doing everything it needs to do but
in many cases the delivery of good health and safety can be
achieved with a little training, some improvements in keeping
records and a bit of employee cooperation. After the audit you
are free to make the changes however it suits you without any
obligation. Just in case you're not so sure how to make those
changes, SafetyWise can help.
If you decide to
take us on as your appointed Competent Person you will get, built into
your service, an annual audit of your safety management
systems. In our experience, clients who take SafetyWise
up on this service operate with fewer accidents and lower
insurance premiums than those that don't. How's that for
