Safety Audits are performed for a variety of reasons, including the following:
- Legislative Requirements There are a number of legislative requirements in place that require facilities to meet certain safety standards. A safety audit can help ensure those standards are met.
- Safety Concern Keeping employees and the workplace safe is ethically very important.
- Injuries If someone has been injured in a specific area of the workplace, it is often necessary to perform a safety audit of that area to determine whether the injury was a one-time occurrence or there is a risk of it happening to someone else.
- Bottom Line While safety improvement in the workplace is often looked at as an expenditure, in the long run it can positively improve a company's bottom line.
- Safety Culture Employers that want to promote a safety-focused culture need to set the tone by engaging in safety-related activities such as a safety audit.
