Audit / Safety Inspection

Workplace Inspections

Periodic inspections of your site or workshop are the most important method of ensuring your organisation meets the latest health and safety standards.

AMC Safety will conduct a pro-active assessment of on site or workshop conditions including both software issues i.e. statutory documentation, risk assessments, training records, statutory inspections and physical issues such as scaffolding, working at height, plant and equipment, noise and housekeeping.

Our experienced advisor will undertake a tour of the site or workshop in the company of the authorised person. Site conditions are measured against a standard checklist and each observation is recorded and prioritised for action. As well as observations our advisor will record instances of good practice or advice given.

A site inspection report will be printed out and left with the site or workshop and a copy e-mailed direct to a nominated person in your organisation to keep you up to date with actual conditions and to permit prompt executive action to be taken as required.

Environmental Audit

This audit will help organisations identify and prioritise actions for performance improvement. Good environmental management is good for business.

The audit process involves a systematic and objective assessment of available data and information.
