Health and Safety Audit
A Health and Safety Audit can ensure compliance with all current legislation related to health and safety at work. It is a critical, in-depth examination of your organisation's safety management systems. The Health and Safety Audit will cover the whole system or particular aspects, such as risk assessment procedures, issue and control of personal protective equipment (PPE) etc.
The Health and Safety Audit provides the organisation with a clear picture of their performance in terms of Health and Safety management. As a result, remedial actions can be taken before incidents occur. Safety inspections are a less formal method of investigating the Health and Safety performance of an organisation. The audit however will highlight all positive and negative aspects of Health and Safety within the work place.

Consequences of Non Conformity
Health & Safety legislation, unlike conventional English Law, assumes you are guilty until proven innocent. In other words, the burden of proof lays with the Defendant to prove his/her innocence.
Fines & Imprisonment
As a consequence of new legislation, namely The Health and Safety (Offences) Act 2008, imprisonment and unlimited fines may now be imposed upon an individual employee regardless of rank or position. This serves to demonstrate that ownership of Health & Safety is now e veryones responsibility and acts as a warning to ensure ongoing maintenance and management of all Health & Safety matters.
