A WSH audit is one of the main steps in implementing WSH management system and evaluating its performance. It is a key tool that helps to identify the strengths and weaknesses in an organisation’s WSH management system, and to highlight opportunities for improvements.
An integrated audit is an ideal approach, for organisations that require a detailed and objective evaluation of their WSH systems and policies. During the audit, It is important during risk assessment to include factors that contribute to risk levels such as:
- work environment (layout, condition etc)
- capabilities, experience of operational staff
- systems being used at the workplace
- range of foreseeable conditions
There are no straightforward answers to determine risk levels. Risk assessment requires detailed knowledge of the workplace activities, urgency of situations, and lastly, an objective judgment during the review. It is important to know if your risk assessment was complete and accurate. It is also essential to be sure those changes in the workplace have not introduced new hazards or changed hazards of lower priority to a higher priority.
It is good to conduct risk assessment regularly, to ensure that control methods are adequate, achievable, effective, and that findings from risk assessments are communicated to everyone who is involved.
