SITE AUDITS & INSPECTIONS
Site audits and inspections are an excellent way to identify risks that sometimes go un-noticed.
Although your site management teams may be aware of the risks on site, we hear from our clients that the hazards on site are perceived differently by different people because they are on site every day. This is why our clients welcome our site audits and inspections as part of their entire management regime. It gives the site team the satisfaction that an external company will bring to their attention things that they may have taken for granted or overlooked.
During the course of every minute of the day, each one of us is carrying out risk assessments on nearly everything we do. We may not record them in writing, but whether it is boiling the kettle or crossing the road the human brain is constantly assessing hazards and the potential harm they may cause.
It therefore makes sense that we should be risk assessing the safety of our employees at work. the handling of hazardous substances and many situations that may occur.
Our risk assessments will help you to identify and focus on the risks that matter most in your workplace, i.e. the ones that have the potential to cause harm or serious injury.
Safety For Design will act as the competent persons that undertake your risk assessments, working with you to identify the hazards and evaluate the risks associated with your working environment. We will compile the necessary risk assessments and provide you with information and instruction as to how to review and update these assessments in the future.
- Task/project specific risk assessments;
- Design risk management;
- Fire risk assessments.
At Safety For Design we work with your operational and site teams to write and review your method statements. We recognize that the people undertaking the work activity are the best positioned to help construct a pragmatic methodology and our help will complement this to provide a robust safe system of work.
