Workplace Inspections

Effective inspections are one of the most important incident/accident prevention tools in a company’s safety and health program. Properly trained inspectors in a systematic inspection program will help reduce incidents and property damage.

Workplace inspections help prevent accidents, injuries, and illness. By critically examining your workplace, a workplace inspection can help identify hazards that need corrective action. Your health and safety committee can help to plan, conduct, and record inspections.

A regular workplace inspection is an important part of your occupational health and safety management system.
