Health and Safety Audits

All companies, regardless of the sector they are in, must adhere to stringent health and safety regulations to ensure staff and any visitors to a site are kept as safe as possible. The best way to ensure that relevant health and safety rules are followed in your business is to carry out comprehensive and regular audits which help to identify potential risks.

Failing to meet industry standards on health and safety is not just a bad business decision – it is illegal and has serious consequences. If you are interested in beginning health and safety audits in your business then it is vital to have help from those with a thorough knowledge of the relevant legislation in your sector.

Regular audits are the most effective way of preventing health and safety breaches. It can be surprising for firms to find that there are so many risks in their workplace that they had not considered - but even the smallest changes in business practices can result in a variety of new dangers that must be addressed.

Our team can:

  • Comprehensively assess a workplace for risks
  • Ensure you are up to date with the latest health and safety regulations for your sector
  • Help identify future risk
  • Put stringent guidelines in place to protect employees and visitors
  • Review accident records
  • Review trading practices
  • Deal with enforcement notices

Having regular audits of health and safety works on two levels – it can prevent accidents occurring in the first place but also protect your firm from prosecution should the worst happen. If it can be shown that you had stringent health and safety measures in place then it is unlikely you will be vulnerable to legal action if an employee is injured while at your workplace.
