What is a Site Safety Audit?

A Site Safety Audit is an on-site inspection of how your health and safety measures are being implemented by workers on site. Ensuring your health and safety rules and procedures are being followed correctly by on-site workers is essential to ensuring you are compliant with the Construction (Design and Management) Regulations (CDM) 2015. Conducting Site Safety Audits and inspections is a proactive approach to ensure your Safety Management System is effective and complies with current Health and Safety regulations.

Conducting regular Site Safety Audits will help you to mitigate potential risk to health, safety, and welfare of workers on site.

Why should you use a CDM Consultant to conduct your Site Safety Audit?

Having external auditors come to your site to conduct the inspection means that bias is removed from your audit and non-compliances can be accurately recorded, protecting you from the risk of unnecessary injuries and near misses. Using external Site Safety Audit inspectors also reassures employees that they work in an environment where safety is proactively managed and that you as the duty holder take their health, safety, and welfare seriously.

What is included in a Site Safety Audit?

A Site Safety Audit provided by our CDM consultants include; 

  • Full site review
  • CDM Contractors and worker interviews
  • Site equipment assessment 
  • Health and safety control measures review
  • Existing documentation evaluation
  • Communication practice review
  • Compliance and performance assessment

Upon receiving your Site Safety Audit inspection report, our consultants can offer you recommendations and an improvement action plan to ensure your Safety Management System is implemented effectively.

What are my responsibilities?

Under the Construction (Design and Management) Regulations (CDM) 2015, virtually everyone involved in a construction project has legal duties to uphold making them a duty holder. As a duty holder, it is required that you make suitable arrangements for managing health, safety, and welfare during your project.

Our Site Safety Audit and inspection services are part of our CDM services which combine a consistent structured approach to proactive health, safety, and welfare management. Our trusted consultants can help you achieve your project goals safely in accordance with the capability requirements of the Construction (Design & Management) Regulations 2015.
