HSG65 Compliance Audits
Managing for Health and Safety (HSG65) is a Health and Safety management guidance document produced by the HSE and was last revised in 2013.
Safety auditing is a valuable management technique that is highly recommended by the Health and Safety Executive (HSE). Indeed, HSG65 recommends that safety audits are undertaken annually to assist organisations to focus their resources in areas of most need.
OM Safety Solutions Ltd can carry out safety auditing for your organisation using the HSG65 Management System standards as well as measuring your status against legal compliance and your own internal standards.
A safety audit will show exactly how you measure up to legal requirements, and whether your performance is up to standard. It will act as a benchmark from which you can form or update a health and safety plan.
Our experienced consultants will examine your own management policies and procedures for securing health, safety and welfare. This will be supported by a premises inspection which will help identify areas where new policies are needed or where existing procedures are not working effectively in practice.
From this audit, a written safety audit report will be generated that identifies areas that are managed well and areas where attention is needed to meet legislation or a recognised standard. It will also explain why such attention is needed. From this we will develop an action plan with targets and mutually agreed time-frames for addressing any items requiring attention, as well as detailing the people who are allocated with responsibility for the task.
With regular audits against the HSG65 Management System, organisations will identify their strengths and weaknesses, determine their overall compliance with this industry best practice standard and ensure control. This will enable effective management of health and safety.
