Managing health, safety and welfare
Inspection, Audit and Review
Get a Health & Safety Audit from MSAFE. The Construction Design and Management Regulations 2007 require all clients and contractors to plan, manage and monitor their activities. This is to ensure they are undertaking everything possible to manage the health, safety and welfare of operatives, staff and the general public at all times.
The Management of Health and Safety at Work Regulations also makes a requirement of employers to undertake regular monitoring, auditing and review of their workplace, working activities and any preventive and protective measures put in place to reduce risk and prevent harm.
Inspection and Audit
MSAFE risk management can assist you with the above by undertaking one off or more regular inspections of your:
- Workshop or factory
- Construction site
- General workplace
- Property and premises
We can also assist you by undertaking a more in-depth audit of your workplace which will include general onsite observations along with a more detailed audit of your systems, policies and procedures.
The aim of our inspection or audit is to assess your compliance with specific legislation, the Construction Phase Plan, Risk Assessments / Method Statements and your company Health and Safety Policy, whilst also assisting with the legal requirement for undertaking regular monitoring and review of health and safety performance throughout your company.
Our site inspections and audits would be carried out using our bespoke software application which reports against set issues on a red, amber, green scoring mechanism. The software allows us to take and mark up photographs to assist in recording the infringement and clearly stating the recommended action. We commit to issuing the report within 24 hours of the site inspection. However, in most cases the report is sent instantly to agreed recipients in PDF format over 3G network (where available).
MSAFE can also assist you with the requirement for reviewing your organisation's health and safety performance and progress in accordance with the Management of Health and Safety at Work Regulations. This can be undertaken at defined intervals and will involve meeting with your management team and reviewing previous inspections and other key markers such as accident statistics or enforcement notices.
The MSAFE site inspection and auditing tool can assist with the review process as at the touch of a button; the software can produce an in-depth analytical breakdown of your organisation's performance and can display a breakdown of individual site performance along with individual items such as plant defects, PPE or scaffold defects.
