Many companies perform periodic workplace/worksite inspections or audits. But what happens afterwards? Is the inspection reviewed? Are the hazards corrected? Don’t make the mistake of thinking that the inspection itself is all that matters.

You performed the workplace inspection to learn as much as possible about the safety concerns and hazards in the workplace. The next step is using that information so you can make recommendations to improve workplace safety. For example, inspections can serve as a leading indicator to reduce injuries and illnesses.

Having a plan ensures that the work put into conducting the audit will see results. Companies can then set expectations and hold everyone accountable.

Collecting the data, reviewing the data and developing an action plan are often where the inspection process goes south as companies do not have a process in place to utilize the inspections for positive/proactive change. The process ensures the hazards are placed as a priority and corrected.

in this Webinar we will share:

  • The importance of workplace/worksite inspections or audits.
  • How to establish a plan for conducting inspections.
  • How to create a process to review, prioritize and assign hazards to be corrected.
  • The value of reviewing and utilizing the data to identify gaps and trends.
  • How to develop an action plan to communicate results set goals and hold everyone accountable
