Three points your must include in your written safety audit report

by , 06 August 2014
At the end of you safety audit you must report your findings to your management. You do this both in writing and verbally during your safety audit closing meeting.

Your written audit report is an incredible important document because it becomes the working procedural document for implementing change.

This is why it must be clear, detailed and to the point. To ensure yours is exactly that, make sure you include these three points...

When you write your health and safety audit report ensure you include these three points

 
To ensure your health and safety audit report is informative and easy to use, ensure you include these three points:
 
1. Audit details
You must give all the specific details about the audit. These include the:
 
- Name of the head auditor;
- Names of the members of the audit team;
- Date the audit started;
- Date the audit ended;
- Departments you audited; and
- What you focused on in each department.
 
Don't include the names of the employees you interviewed in case your managers think the employees wanted to get them in trouble and therefore punish them. 
 
2. Your unsatisfactory findings
These are findings that show there were problems or holes in your health and safety programme. You must include all the details of these findings such as;
 
- The problem;
- How long the problem existed according to employee accounts;
- The cause of the problem; and
- The effect of the problem.
 
3. Your plan of action
This must detail the plan of action you propose to help fix the problems in your health and safety programme. You should only write the final version after your closing meeting so it includes any amendments that come about during the meeting.
 
Remember to be as detailed as possible when you draw up this report so it's easy to use.
