Industrial Safety and Labour Protection Audit, hereafter referred to as an audit, is a systematic independent process of analysis, evaluation and inspection of an audited facility which involves collection and unbiased assessment of evidence in order to establish the compliance of particular activities, measures, conditions, labor protection management system and information relating to these matters with requirements of Ukrainian legislation on industrial safety and labour protection (Law of Ukraine "On Audit of Industrial Safety and Labour Protection").
Industrial Safety and Labour Protection Audit is crucial because:
the economic damage resulting from violations of the industrial safety and labor protection keeps growing constantly;
the efficiency of the taken measures remains to be just as relevant as before.
Audit: why it makes sense to get it done:
Only an independent technical audit can provide a full and unbiased picture of the technical condition of the audited facilities;
It is important to examine every aspect of industrial safety and labour protection and identify their interrelations;
Violations can often result in major losses. Therefore, it is a lot easier to identify and eliminate them timely rather than facing the aftermath.
Audit offers plenty of advantages for your business:
Based on accurate picture of the situation, a set of recommendations is provided;
It allows to find a balance between the organizational and technical component.
WITHIN THE SCOPE OF INDUSTRIAL SAFETY AND LABOUR PROTECTION AUDIT, THE ASSESSMENT INCLUDES
THE FOLLOWING 5 STEPS:
Corporate documentation audit.
The sufficiency of labour protection documents available at the enterprise - both internal (regulations, orders, procedures, programs etc.), and external ones such as high-threat work permits, certificates confirming completion of special labor protection training, and medical check-ups is evaluated.
Production equipment audit.
Safety and technical condition evaluation of the equipment, machinery, mechanisms, and territory. Both the overall condition of the equipment and its compliance with the labor protection laws - availability and relevance of reviews, audits and inspections - are evaluated.
Safety evaluation of work performed by the employees allows to reveal whether the staff activities and operating procedures are in line with internal and national labour protection requirements.
Staff audit is aimed at establishing whether the staff is fully aware of the safety requirements and the logic behind these requirements in terms of performed work.
As a result of the labor protection audit, a written report containing identified deficiencies and discrepancies is drawn up. The report offers comprehensive recommendations on how to adjust the existing health, safety and security management system so that it is more suited to the company’s business processes.
