Here's the one thing a DoL inspector wants to see to prove you dealt with risks in your workplace

by , 08 October 2014
An important part of health and safety compliance is dealing with the risks in your workplace. This means finding them and putting safety precautions in place to protect your employees.

You have to prove you've done this to a DoL inspector if he comes to inspect your workplace.

But how do you prove this?

Read on to discover what the inspector wants to see as proof you've done this...

 

Show this to the DoL inspector to prove you dealt with risks

 
You must show the DoL inspector your risk register. This is the document you use during your risk assessments to record details about the risks you identified.
 
This proves you did a risk assessment and put measures in place to protect your employees. 
 
You should keep this document for every risk assessment you do. 
 
And that's not all you have to show him to prove you dealt with risks in your workplace.
 
*********** Reader's choice  ***************
 
Here's how you can be 100% sure your risk assessments are legally compliant...

Everything you need to effectively manage risk in your business, avoid accidents in the workplace and be 100% compliant with the DoL is now available to you in this one resource.

These documents will also help you prove compliance with the OHS Act

 
You must keep the minutes and agendas from your health and safety committee meetings. These minutes show what you discussed with the committee with regards to putting safety measures in place to protect your employees, as well as the agreement you came to.
 
Doing this will show the inspector all the steps you took to assess and deal with risks in your workplace. 
 
PS. To ensure your risk assessments are always effective when it comes to identifying risks in your workplace, use the Risk Assessment Toolkit. It will give you everything you need to do risk assessments that are 100% compliant.
