Audits

If a health and safety audit doesn’t fix my compliance with health and safety legislation, why, as a SafetyWallet member, should I do it?

That's a good question! There is a good reason why as well; actually, there are a couple of good reasons why. Firstly, the audit questions are linked directly to legislation so an audit establishes exactly where you stand with regards to health and safety. Knowing where you are (whether it's good or it's bad), allows you to determine a plan of action and thereby take constructive action to fix things. Secondly, by conducting an audit, your business is able to provide proof that you are trying to improve health and safety in your business. This can be a very important factor when external parties make enquiries about what you do in health and safety.
