SF Bay Area Safety Audits
SAFETY ASSESSMENTS & AUDITS
A key facet on effective safety management is being proactive, not waiting for the next incident to tell you where the problems are. That is why a strong assessment and audit component is one of the foundations to best in class safety performance and environmental compliance. Getting out there and finding the failures before they occur can take your program to the next level, prevent incidents, maintain compliance, avoid costly Environmental citations and lower your Workers Compensation rates.

IDENTIFY GOALS & SCOPE
Our assessment and audit team will meet with key personnel in your organization to identify goals and a scope for the assessment or audit. The most effective means of achieving those goals and an agreed on time frame will be established. Upon completion of the assessment or audit, our team will work with you to identify reasonable corrective actions for achieving organizational goals and developing a strong safety culture.
Safety Compliance Management will help your job site personnel develop critical processes, programs, and solutions.
We use a team approach to assessments and audits in these important areas:
- Life Safety Concerns: exits, exit pathways, emergency lighting, and first aid kits
- Housekeeping: slips, trips, and falls; building access; main electrical and gas shutoff accessibility; and eating and drinking policies
- Fire Protection: fire extinguishers, non-permitted building additions, fire hoses, yard fire hydrants, fire risers, sprinklers, PIVs, and alarms
- Electrical: non-approved use of extension cords, access to boxes, and appropriate labeling of electrical hazards
- Hazardous Materials: storage and handling, labeling, quantities, incompatibility issues, hazardous waste, inspection programs, compressed gas storage and usage, and hazard communication program
- Site-Specific Permits or Programs: Hazardous Material Business Plan (HMBP), SB 14, SPCC, pressure vessel permits, respirator programs, industrial truck programs, and hearing conservation programs
- Injury and Illness Recordkeeping: OSHA 300 logs, Safety Committee Minutes, Safety Training records, Toolbox topic ideas, Material Safety Data Sheet maintenance – all of these are components of your Injury Illness Prevention Plan, and are among some of the first things OSHA asks to see. Can you afford not to have your records kept ready?
