Heights safety audit

Why should I have a workplace safety inspection?

The most important factor when someone is working at height or in a high risk workplace is to ensure they are working safely and that the risk of accident or injury is reduced as much as possible.

Unfortunately there are some workers who are either uneducated on their obligations, unaware of safety standards that govern and affect their work or knowledgeable workers who choose not to abide by them.

You might be:

  • In charge of hiring contractors to work on your building
  • A business who contracts out work to a third party
  • A business that employs staff to carry out heights or high risk jobs

In all of the above situations you are liable for the safety of the workers on your work site.

Instead of trusting that all workers are competent, an independent audit of the workplace will reveal any issues that don’t comply with health and safety legislation.
