We recommend conducting a site inspection as part of any Health and Safety plan. A review and inspection will help to identify problems and assess risks before accidents or injuries occur. A proper inspection will:
- identify potential problems
- identify deficiencies in equipment and/or machinery
- assess and determine the degree of compliance
- demonstrate management support for the health and safety program
Our inspectors are trained to look for potential hazards and are aware of current legal requirements that may apply. A review will also factor in the requirements of the company’s health and safety program.
Any items identified during the inspection will be noted and reviewed for corrective action. A return review can be scheduled for follow up to see that the corrective action has been taken and that identified issues have been effectively dealt with. Where possible inspections and reviews will be conducted with the responsible person so that any corrective actions needed can be implemented as soon as possible.
The results of the inspections will be clearly communicated and a copy should be kept on file on site and with CDH Risk Management for review and retention.
We work with you to establish an inspection programme that covers:
- frequency of inspections
- communication of inspection results
- follow up on corrective actions required
- retention/forwarding of inspection reports
The benefits of managed health and safety
Well managed health and safety and Fire Safety systems have been proven to reduce absence due to sickness, injury rates andthe costs associated with staff replacement.
This leads to increased productivity levels and lower insurance costs.
