Establishing safety programs and developing a culture of safety are great steps in ensuring a safe workplace. But how do you know if the programs and policies you have implemented are really doing the job intended? The answer is simple: without checking, you don't.
An audit of your safety system is one way to find out what is working, what is not, and what could use a little more attention.
The safety audit is a tremendous tool for finding areas of your safety management system in need of improvement. By auditing current performance, you can make informed decisions and prioritize resources.
Additionally, regular reviews of safety performance will lead to a culture of continuous improvement because your employees will not only know you care – but will make sure that they are doing things right!Learning Objectives
