Audits are a means of showing a commitment to safe working practices.
Whether internal or external audit systems are employed the results tell us how we are performing and in what areas we are achieving our goals and where we have room for improvement.
NGTC can assist with the following:
- Independent assessments of performance/efficiency
- System development and maintenance
- Risk assessment
- Maintenance planning
- Strategies to establish funding
- Meeting legislation requirements
- Improvement of existing systems
- Auditing to improve future performance
The overriding factor in achieving a fair audit result is deciding on the criteria to be measured and the desired outcomes.
More often than not it is the “system” that lets the person down not the person letting the system down!!
‘Why did the person have the accident?’ Possible causal factors:-
- Lack of training
- Lack of equipment
- Unsafe environment
- Working when unwell
- Work or home pressures
Asking the right questions on a regular basis will raise these issues so that they can be addressed before the accident occurs.
Human and monetary costs can often be avoided with regular reviewing of your systems through audits.
