Here's who must do the safety audit in your workplace

by , 05 August 2014
When it comes to health and safety audits, it's never 100% clear who should do it. At the end of the day, almost any of your employees can do it, but this doesn't mean they should.

If you choose the wrong person to do the audit, it could lead to an unsatisfactory audit with inconclusive findings.

This means a lot of time wasted and you'll need to do the audit all over again. To ensure you select the correct person for the job, read on...

Choose one of these three people to do your safety audit

 
You must choose someone with auditing experience to do a safety audit on your health and safety programme.
 
This is the most important thing to remember because an employee with no auditing knowledge or experience won't know what to do.
 
That's why you must choose one of these three people to do your safety audit:
 
1. An employee with audit experience and training
According to the Health and Safety Advisor, you can get any of your employees to do your safety audit but he must have at least 20 hours of auditing experience. He must also have the relevant training to do an audit.
 
The Advisor suggests you get employees to do micro audits as part of their day-to-day duties. 
 
2. Your health and safety manager
It may be a good idea to make safety audits part of your health and safety manager's duties. He must get the qualification to do this which your company can cover if you need to.
 
3. An external safety audit expert
If you want to do a full compliance audit on your company it's definitely a better idea to hire an external auditor. This ensures the findings are accurate and true.
 
So ensure you choose the right person for the job when it comes to safety audits in your company.
