Workplace Inspections / Audits
The Workplace Inspection / Audit process goes hand in hand with the induction given to new students / staff members, and ensures early detection of any hazards or non-compliance with safety directives explained during induction.
Workplace inspections typically occur once a year for non-hazardous areas such as office spaces, and more frequently for hazardous areas such as laboratories or workshops. The inspections look for a wide range of hazards, such as out of test electrical equipment, high storage, non-compliance with Safe Operating Procedures, poor chemical handling, slip / trip hazards and workstation ergonomics. Any areas which fail checks receive recommendations on remedial action, the effectiveness of which is checked in the subsequent inspection.
The School is committed to a regular inspection schedule to ensure we maintain a safe working environment.
