Health and Safety Audit
We provide Health and Safety Audit services exclusively for Smartlog® clients and their employees.
Our auditors are IOSH, NEBOSH, BAFE, GIFireE qualified and members of the IIRSM & IFSM.
Why Is a Health and Safety Audit Required?
According to Article 3 of The Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005, employers have responsibility over fire safety for their employees and business premises; and failure to comply with fire safety legislation is a criminal offence. The law also mandates that businesses with more than 5 employees must have a written health and safety policy that is readily accessible to all employees.
The purpose of conducting a Health and Safety Audit (or a General Risk Assessment) of your premises is, at a minimum, the following:
As health and safety compliance specialists, we provide services to help with all aspects of your organisation’s fire and health & safety compliance. In order for your organisation to fully comply with health & safety and fire safety legislation, appropriate documentation, up-to-date policies and effective procedures should be in place.
The following services are provided as part of your Health and Safety Audit/General Risk Assessment:
(Please note: for most organisations, not all of the below services will be applicable)
Throughout the visit, the assessor will require unrestricted access to all areas of the property, including any basements, lofts and boiler/plant rooms. Additionally, they will need to look at the COSHH, Asbestos Register and CLEAPS records.
Our health and safety consultancy services are provided by IOSH and NEBOSH qualified assessors. Safesmart’s fire safety and health & safety consultants are available to provide audits, risk assessments, policy advice and legislative guidance regarding premises, employer and employee safety.
Most health and safety solutions exist in a generic form. For instance, within certain industries policies are pretty much transferable — the HSE website provides a lot of useful material.
However for many organisations, some legal and practical conundrums still remain. This is especially prevalent concerning industry-specific safety procedures and the additional (and sometimes completely niche) policies that tend to be involved in such cases.
In such cases, external health and safety consultancy is often needed in order to know which steps must be taken in order to ensure that both employees and employers are fully prepared for any health and safety scenarios that may come up in the present or the future.
Safesmart provides (alongside the aforementioned services) an open door consultancy for our customers; assisting in any health and safety issues that they might require specialist advice or help with.
