Package Overview

It is important that every employer is regularly conducting audits of their facilities and job sites to ensure that their Health & Safety Program and its policies are being followed. We provide support to employers who do not have available internal resources to conduct these audits, or who want to bring in an outside firm to support culture change or reinforce the importance of compliance.

The first step we take in these projects is a 30 minute discovery meeting to better understand your needs and context. This also will give you an opportunity to ask any questions you might have about our audit process or about the act and legislation in general.

To book a discovery meeting or just ask some questions, call our consulting team directly at (866) 756-5554.

Package Includes:

Site Visit & Inspection
Program Update Recommendations
Facility Improvement Recommendations
Training Support Recommendations
Digital & Hard Copy of Audit Findings

Our Process

  1. We will visit site location(s) and inspect facilities.
  2. We observe and record elements related to H&S policy and program, violence and harassment, postings, records of training, health and safety forms, first aid, pre-start inspections, fire safety, JHSC, emergency response plans and site-specific findings (hazards).
  3. We will use a specific audit format as requested by the client (Workwell etc.) and make recommendations citing The Occupational Health and Safety Act and other applicable regulatory requirements.
  4. Once we have completed the Workplace Facility Audit, we will prepare a report and review our findings with key personnel and the management team.

Why Are Audits Required?

Employers have a number of duties related to safety and they include ensuring that the equipment, materials and protective devices prescribed for a task are provided and maintained in good condition. It is also the employer’s responsibility to ensure that the measures and procedures prescribed for a specific task are carried out in the workplace.

Additionally, employers must acquaint a worker or a person in authority over a worker with any hazard in the work and in the handling, storage, use, disposal and transport of any article, device, equipment or a biological, chemical or physical agent, and take every precaution reasonable in the circumstances for the protection of a worker.

Our audit process assists the employer as they fulfill their responsibility to prepare and review at least annually a written occupational health and safety policy and develop and maintain a program to implement that policy;

The Occupational Health & Safety Act in Ontario outlines these requirements here: Part 111 OHSA – Duties of Employers and Other Persons
