Health & Safety Audits

Here at Business Safety Solutions, we provide fully comprehensive health and safety audits in Chester and across the North for all types of businesses and across various sectors including Manufacturing, Warehousing, Leisure, Retail and Education. Our bespoke health and safety audits ensure that your company is fully compliant with current health and safety regulations, as well as assessing how well you’re following processes and analysing current performance. Audits are imperative for protecting employees, customers and visitors from harm and can bring endless positive benefits to your business. We follow proven health and safety procedures that start with conducting an opening meeting with all relevant members of staff to discuss current procedures and practices.

The procedure will then proceed to documenting and recording observations made on site so that we can clearly identify current strengths and weaknesses. Once we have all data and information required, we will then take steps to implement new procedures and practices where required to prevent harm and remove unsafe hazards/practices. A typical health and safety audit checklist should also evaluate;-

Management team competence.

Frequency of safety checks.

System for reporting hazards.

Current fire risk assessment.

Although health and safety audits can be completed internally – with the help of an appointed competent person – we highly recommend external audits as gold standard and to avoid taking any unnecessary shortcuts. We perform all audits by using recognised standards, such as BS OHSAS 18001 and ISO 39001. 

Benefits Of Health & Safety Audits

Hiring a professional and fully accredited health and safety company – just like Business Safety Solutions – to undergo a health and safety audit can provide various benefits to your business and prove to be much more than just a box ticking exercise. A bespoke health and safety audit will provide a calculated analysis of procedures and provide fact-based changes to be implemented right away. Not only will this be beneficial for the health and well-being of all employees and people on-site, but it will also boost morale and show that you genuinely care as an employer which can go a long way. Furthermore, you can actually save money from an audit. The audit will show you exactly what needs to be implemented and invested in which will therefore reduce unnecessary wasted costs.
