Workplace health and safety is essential for the company in which you work. A WHS inspection is part of the management system to ensure that the conditions are safe for employees and that health is not adversely affected because of the goings-on in the building. The goal is to critically examine the space to report any potential hazards to the owner or manager on duty. That way, these issues can be corrected before officials come to check out the place. You can work on getting things fixed and ready, ensuring that you don’t fail the official inspection or be required to pay fines.
A WHS inspection includes a variety of things. Many times, inspectors talk to employees or their representatives to find out what they think could be improved and why. The inspector also analyses any hazard or incident report data, identifies potential and known hazards and their causes, and reviews what hazard controls are available. The inspection also focuses on the environment, work processes, and equipment. The environment can include things like vibrations, noise, lighting, ventilation, and temperature. Work processes focus on how employees interact with equipment and elements while doing their job.
