Implementing Effective Safety Audits

Understand the laws and regulations applicable to safety and health audits and how to avoid legal pitfalls. Many employers think that they have a good safety and health program but a review of the company's workers' comp experience as well as lost-time injury and illness rates demonstrates something is lacking. This topic will examine key reasons for conducting a safety and health audit as part of any company's integrated safety and health management plan. The material will review the types of audits that employers can utilize, as well as define the role audits play in improving the company's overall safety and health management system. In addition, we will analyze the practical guidance, including the structure of the audit, the designing of the audit, the staffing and roles of the auditors, tracking and analyzing and reporting audit results, as well as the follow-up necessary for audits. The topic will discuss the laws and regulations applicable to safety and health audits and how to avoid violating those rules. Finally, we will examine the potential ways that employers can bring safety and health audits under some type of legal privilege in order to avoid disclosure of those audits to an OSHA investigator or plaintiff's attorney.
