Workplace Safety Audits with the Compliance Professionals

Most business owners today are aware of the need for workplace safety compliance. But knowing if your business is actually WHS compliant and up to standard is much more complicated.

What Are Workplace Safety Audits?

A workplace safety audit is designed to discover the true state of safety at your workplace and provide a one-time, in-depth view. The audit looks at the physical plant, work processes, production systems, and the people involved. Workplace safety is mandated by regulatory act in Australia, but all businesses should provide a positive and safe working environment It shows your company commitment to quality, to the well-being of your staff – and it’s just the right thing to do. The workplace safety audit is a way of finding out how your business is doing in this important regard.

How Workplace Safety Audits Are Conducted

A workplace safety consultant is dedicated to your business for the audit. The process may include interviews and discussions with managers and staff, fact-finding, observation, background research, industry analysis, examination of documents, comparison of comparable workspaces, and will always involve an on-site visit or visits.

The Results of a Workplace Safety Audit Report

After the audit process is complete, the workspace safety consultant will gather together all the information obtained and organise it into a concise workplace safety audit report. The report will provide the checklist that was used in the audit, show the ways in which the company is doing well, and will point out which areas may need improvement by implementing corrective actions to ensure compliance.

The report is presented in three sections: Non-Conformances, Opportunity for Improvement, and Observations. All recommendations are to be made based on WHS legal requirements.  A workplace health and safety audit is meant as a roadmap for success.

Who Requires Workplace Safety Audits?

Your business may not be extremely large and may not have the complex WHS issues of a larger organisation, but you will still need compliant HR and safety procedures in place. The cost of non-compliance when something goes wrong can be enough to create the potential for business failure. It’s not worth taking this risk, especially when highly qualified professional guidance is available.
