Performing routine inspections and periodic audits are essential for a company to implement a process that assesses risk and liabilities while developing accurate policies, procedures, and training to continuously improve HSE performance. Inspections (hazard identification) and audits (program evaluation) are critical to the successful implementation of an effective and continuously improving HSE management system.
Inspections of workplace hazards must be integrated into a company’s HSE program to ensure that hazards are appropriately identified, evaluated (severity, likelihood), and effectively controlled through engineering, administrative controls (procedures, training), and through personal protective equipment. Auditing of a company’s HSE performance is essential for a company to assess the suitability, adequacy, and effectiveness of their HSE program.
While inspections and audits may be conducted internally, there are 4 major benefits of acquiring KSV Group’s third-party services to assess the effectiveness of your HSE program:
