Tips for Conducting Safety Inspections
June 16, 2020 - June 17, 2020
During an inspection, identify unsafe conditions and activities that may cause injury or illness, so you can take corrective measures. Follow these guidelines:
-Use a checklist to ensure that your inspection is thorough and consistent with previous inspections.
-Ask yourself what hazards are associated with the job that you are observing or that would be performed in that work area.
-Observe how workers perform tasks. Do they follow safe work procedures and use personal protective equipment as required?
-Ask workers how they perform their tasks.
-Talk to workers about what they’re doing. Ask them about concerns they may have about health and safety.
-Record any unsafe actions or conditions that you observe.
-Consider tasks that the worker may also perform that you did not observe.
