The different components of the health and safety audit. Next, after hazard control, is inspections, where you monitor the health and safety status of your program, you check the hazards so there are no uncontrolled hazards, and you ensure that you are aware of the state of your organization. Then is orientation and training. You do orientations, you do training, which are competency-based. Then is emergency response. You have emergency response procedures, which come into effect when the unthinkable happens. You will be prepared and save lives.

Then, incident investigations and near miss reporting. Near miss is the leading indicator. If you have good near miss reporting, it can prevent incidents. However, once incidents happen, you investigate to determine root causes and corrective measures. Finally, there’s program administration. Program administration are things such as your health and safety meetings, your statistics, and your audit action plan. Under the new audit protocol there are supposed to be two more elements, such as health and safety committees if you have 20 or more employees. Also, definitions of the stakeholders, like suppliers and self-employed personnel. That, in essence, are the elements of a good health and safety program, which an audit like a medical checkup evaluates to determine your health.
