Hazardous Substances Audits
Hazardous substances have the potential to harm the health or safety of employees and contractors in the workplace.
Hazardous substance audits capture and validate the hazardous substances in the workplace, against the relevant legislation
These audits can include:
the storage and handling of hazardous substances and materials
The observation of work practices to assess the potential routes of exposure other than by inhalation (such as ingestion and absorption), workplace controls and PPE used to limit exposures
Significant penalties exist for organisations that fail to comply with industry regulations and working with Health Safety Environment Australia can assist in ensuring that your business complies with the regulations identifying process and controls that can be implemented to reduce the exposure or potential exposure in any workplace.
A Hazardous Substance Audit conducted by Health Safety Environment Australia can:
- identify any potential hazards
- develop hazardous substance registers to meet compliance
- assess the risks associated with the hazard
- control the risks
- review processes
- develop and review implementation programs
