by , 05 August 2014
When it comes to your health and safety audit, interviews and questions are important. This is how you investigate the problems in your health and safety programme.

Depending on the departments you audit, your questions will be different. But there are some questions you should carry through all of your safety audit interviews. This way you can get an overall picture of the health and safety of your workplace.

To get this perspective always include these three safety audit questions in your audit interviews...

Always ask these safety audit questions during audit interviews

 
To get a clear overall picture of your workplace health and safety programme, you must keep certain questions consistent. 
 
Three of these questions are:
 
Question #1: 'How many accidents have you had in this department in the last six months?'
This question will give you an idea of the level of risks and accidents in your workplace. The higher the number of accidents, the more work you'll need to do to fix things.
 
Question #2: 'What are the most common accidents that happen in your department?'
This will give you an idea of where the biggest problems are. This means you can streamline your plan of action to fix the most serious problems first.
 
Question #3: 'Is your accident documentation up-to-date?'
You must check if your departments are up-to-date with their record keeping. If not, this could be a huge contributing factor in why accidents keep recurring. 
 
And don't forget to ask each department to show you their accident history records so you can verify the information they gave you. 
 
These three questions can help you gain perspective about the state of the health and safety in your workplace. 
 
Just remember, you'll need to interrogate each department you audit with specific questions as well of these recurring ones.
