Workplace Inspections

Effective workplace inspections are one of the most important incident prevention tools in a company’s health and safety management program. Employers must ensure that regular inspections are made of all workplaces, including: buildings, structures, grounds, excavations, tools, equipment, machinery and work methods, and practices.

A workplace inspection program takes planning, preparation and training. Using properly trained inspectors in a systematic inspection program will reduce incidents and property damage. An effective safety inspection program will improve worker communication, company morale and reduce incidents and time loss.
