Health & Safety Tour / Advice

Health & Safety Audits

Health & Safety audits are an important tool in ensuring compliance with current legislation that applies to the workplace. This generally involves a critical, in-depth examination of an organisation’s Health and Safety management system.

With Lincolnshire & Counties Training Solutions, every Health & Safety audit is undertaken by our experienced team of specialist consultants. This can be provided as a one-off ‘standalone’ service or as part of a service contract.

Once the audit has been completed

A summary of all of the audit findings is presented in a Health & Safety Audit Compliance Checklist and written report outlining the findings with comprehensive recommendations of any actions required so that your Health and Safety plan is robust, understandable and compliant with current regulations and practices .
