Safety Audits / Gap Analysis

We will carry out Health and Safety audits to ensure compliance with Health and Safety Legislation.

This will also identify gaps in health and safety and items that were not acted upon from the last audit.

The Audit will also help to identify areas that might require attention and inclusion in training sessions.

We will chair safety committee meetings to discuss safety in the business. This is an excellent tool to bring safety to the shop floor and involve staff.
