Smart Safety Solutions can help you check your health and safety systems as part of your due diligence obligations under the Health and Safety at Work Act 2015. This will help you to see where your processes and systems are working well, and where they need improvement.
Health and safety requires ongoing maintenance and improvement, because the workplaces and people in them are not static but constantly adjusting. Sometimes these changes are internal, with new equipment, new employees, new workloads, etc., and sometimes these changes are external as with the new legislation. All of it means that your health and safety systems need to be dynamic and the best way to monitor them is with regular audits.
We can use standard audit templates such the AS/NZ 4801 Health and Safety Standard, the new ISO 45001 or we can create an audit to suit your system and processes.

This audit gives a company a deep dive into the health and safety culture of their business and offer real insight into how the company is not ony performing, but also how the employee buy into health and safety.
