Safety Inspections

Safety inspections are usually carried out on a daily or weekly basis, and they are generally focused on identifying and addressing specific safety hazards or issues. These may include identifying and fixing broken equipment, removing clutter or obstacles from walkways, or checking that safety equipment like fire extinguishers and smoke detectors are in good working order. Safety inspections are a powerful tool for maintaining day-to-day safety in the workplace, and they help prevent many accidents and injuries that might otherwise occur.


Safety audits are detailed, in-depth evaluations of the overall safety of a workplace. These audits are usually conducted on a less frequent basis, and they are more focused on identifying broad safety trends and issues. In a safety audit, inspectors may review safety processes and protocols throughout an entire organization, including safety training, management practices, and communication systems. Safety audits are designed to take a more holistic view of safety within an organization, enabling management to identify areas where targeted improvements may be able to significantly enhance the safety culture of the business.
