Product Description

As well as identifying gaps, health and safety audits are important for challenging the benchmarks you have set out in your safety management system. They are really helpful for coming up with actionable steps you can take to improve your business safety, and can be used to, Document that your safety management system complies with legislation, Test if your safety management system is achieving its objectives, See if your safety management system is maintaining the performance criteria and the auditing system is effective, Assess whether your organisation has completed any previous modification compliance audits, when necessary. Constantly improve your organisation. There are many types of safety audits, but the two most widely used are, Management system audits, Safety function audits. A management system audit is horizontal. This means it looks across the entire company structure and considers the broad, in depth scope of management policies and procedures that are in place to manage the organisations health and safety at the site. Management system audits are typically assessed against the following standards, ASNZS 4801 Occupational Health and Safety Management System. ISO 45001Occupational Health and Safety. OHSAS 18001 Occupational Health and Safety Management System. ISO 14001 Environmental Management. ISO 9001 Quality Assurance. Most internal health and safety audits can follow a six step proces1. Identify Areas to Audit, First things first, you need to make a note of each area of the business that should be audited. Some areas have simple processes, while others are more complex. Its important that an internal audit does not try to do everything at once. Whatever the area of focus, you should use a systematic and disciplined approach to their work according to The Institute of Internal Auditors. You also need to set benchmarks and standards, and make sure everyone agrees on them before the audit takes place.2. Decide How Often to Audit, Choosing how often to audit will depend on the size of your business, the industry you are in and if your work environment is continuously changing like a construction site. However, some timings are decided for you, for example HACCP audits must be completed quarterly. It is likely that some areas of your business will need auditing more often than others as they carry higher health and safety risks. Your safety management system should outline how often you need to audit different areas, but you may wish to change the frequency i.e. from quarterly to monthly, or monthly to weekly  depending on the risks. Once you know how often you want to audit each area, put it in your calendar. It is easy for the months to roll past and for internal audits to not happen, so schedule them out for the year ahead. Send out a copy of the calendar so an upcoming audit is never a surprise to staff.3. Conduct the Audit, Again, the audit process will look different depending on your organisation and the area being audited. You may need to test equipment, or ask staff to explain a process and compare it to what is written on the policy to assess competency and potential training shortfalls. Start with a kick off meeting. The kick off meeting isa good opportunity to introduce the audit team and key participants, explaining the purpose and approach of the audit, and establishing the required communication protocols. Carry out infield observations and interviews. Infilled observations do not mean hiding behind equipment with your camera ready to snap someone being noncompliant. The approach should be casual and inclusive to understand how the processes work in reality. Likewise, interviews should not feel like interrogations, they should be in the field with the people that are most familiar with the processes. Collect evidence. Collecting evidence is important as it helps demonstrate the outcome of the audit and can be used to help improve the system in the future or celebrate the success you are achieving. Evidence could be completed documents, photos, and interview statements.4. Document the Results, Take notes as you go to help you write your report. You need to review any collected documents and notes, and comprehensively write up your findings.
