Here's what safety audits, inspections and risk assessments have in common

by , 08 August 2014
Managing your health and safety programme is all about constantly checking if things work. This means speaking to your employees and watching how they operate.

Now, you can 'watch' with very different intentions depending on whether you're doing a risk assessment, inspection or safety audit, but they still all have a common goal.

Not sure what that goal is? Today, we're revealing the one goal safety audits, inspections and risk assessments all have in common...

 

Safety audits, inspections and risk assessments share this common goal

 
When you do a safety audit, you're looking for problems or gaps in your health and safety plan. 
 
When you do an inspection, it's normally to ensure employees and managers are doing what they should. 
 
And a risk assessment is the way you spot the risks your employees face during their work. 
 
As you can see, all have these have their own safety goals to achieve. But, if you look beyond their individual goals, you'll see a common one too.
 
To find this common goal, you have to look at why you do all of them...

*********************************
 

The common goal of safety audits, inspections and risk assessments lies in why you do them

 
So ask yourself: 'Why do I do safety audits, inspections and risk assessments?'
 
The answer is to find safety problems and fix them. With a risk assessment, the problem is the risks. In an inspection, it's non-compliance from your employees. And an audit looks for problems in your health and safety programme.
 
At the end of the day, all of these look for problems in your workplace health and safety on different levels.
 
That's why it's so vital that you do all of them as part of your health and safety management.
