An audit is an in-depth review of your company’s policies, procedures and systems.

You have to know where you are before you can decide how to get to where you want to be!

Practical and Safe Solutions can undertake formal health and safety audits based on the standards set out in HSE guidance HS(G)65 Successful Health and Safety and BS OHSAS 18001. Such audits can be used as an independent review of your current standards of health and safety management and legal compliance, or to monitor progress over time.

Our audits cover an extensive range of safety issues, but this will depend on the type of business you operate.

A typical audit would cover the following:

  • Occupational health and safety policy
  • Occupational health and safety planning for hazard
    identification, risk assessment and risk control
  • Legal and other requirements
  • Health and safety objectives
  • Occupational health and safety management programme
  • Organisation (structure and responsibility)
  • Training, awareness and competence
  • Consultation and communication
  • Documentation

On completion of the audit you will be provided with a detailed report setting out the main findings and the action recommended. The report will include advice, guidance and an action plan setting priorities to assist with the management of the issues raised. Furthermore, we can provide the appropriate documentation and assist with the implementation of the recommended actions.
