Safety Compliance & Site Inspection



Industrial disasters cause pain, suffering, death, financial loss, and loss of commercial reputation. Organizations, as a minimum requirement, must demonstrate compliance with health, safety, and environmental ‘HSE’ legal requirements. They should also demonstrate compliance with their own HSE Management System.

An essential part of any HSE-MS is to provide some means of measuring performance against these requirements and to provide feedback for management review. The HSE Audit and site inspections are essential elements in providing this function. Auditors, whether experienced or new need to have the necessary experience in HSE to conduct an effective audit.
