Carrying out regular workplace inspections is a proactive way of identifying common workplace hazards and initiating action to prevent injuries and work related illness.
Our experienced consultants can show your business how to use a workplace inspection as a highly effective hazard identification and control monitoring tool. We can also demonstrate how to include hazards that cannot be seen e.g. gaps in training, non-adherence to SWMS etc.
An inspection may usually be required following hazard or incident reporting, or the introduction of a new process, procedure or plant.
Workplace hazards vary according to industries and workplace types, but some common workplace hazards include:
- Frayed electrical cords
- Unguarded machinery
- Exposed moving parts
- Constant loud noise
- Working from ladders
- Scaffolding or heights
- Tripping hazards.
Workplace Inspection Process:
When carrying out a workplace inspection we consider:
Listening to the concerns of workers and their representatives
Analysing workplace hazards and incident reporting data
Identifying existing and potential hazards and determining their underlying cause
Reviewing the effectiveness of any previously implemented hazard controls.
We also will look at the environment, equipment, and the process of work.
The environment can include noise, vibration, lighting, temperature and ventilation.
Equipment includes tools and materials.
The work process relates to how the worker interacts with related elements while carrying out a task or operation.
Prices are tailored.
