Site Safety Inspections/Audit Service
SITE SAFETY INSPECTIONS/AUDIT SERVICE
The Construction Industry is widely recognised as one of the most dangerous for workers; consequently it’s where the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) focus much of their attention.
An HSE Inspector could arrive unannounced on site at any time, to check compliance with health & safety legislation and Construction (Design and Management) Regulations. It is your responsibility to be prepared for these inspections and to ensure your site & workforce complies – failing to do so can be an expensive & reputation damaging experience.
We’ve put together some FAQs (and the answers) to put you in the picture.
How can I make sure my site is HSE compliant?
Regular Site Safety Inspections and periodic audits carried out either by an appropriately trained member of staff or an independent third party will help ensure that your site complies with health and safety legislation and Construction (Design and Management) Regulations requirements.
Are site inspections really necessary?
Regular site inspections help you to reduce risk and maintain high levels of health & safety compliance on your work sites as required by the Management of Health and Safety at Work Regulations 1999. Monitoring and reporting of health and safety compliance is a vital & necessary part of an organisation’s health and safety management system.
Site monitoring arrangements should be proactive, not reactive, and regular site inspections enable the identification of any shortcomings, improvements or changes required on a work site or to working practices before there is an accident or incident.
What are the benefits?
Site inspections and audits provide reassurance and peace of mind, to the workforce, your client and you. They are an opportunity to demonstrate that safe systems of work and good health and safety practices are being followed on site. They assist a company in building their standing as a safe & reputable firm.
