InMotion April 2022 – Workplace Inspections | What you need to know

Workplace inspections are an integral part of any business’ operations and risk management framework, regardless of the industry. Workplace inspections should be designed to help identify unsafe conditions and measure compliance with WHS policy, procedure, process and practice. Inspections can be carried out on a regular basis to:

  • assess the implementation and effectiveness of risk controls;
  • identify potential WHS hazards which require corrective and/or preventive action; and
  • identify opportunities for improvement in WHS performance.

In this InMotion we discuss what workplace inspections are, why they are important, the various types of inspections that can be implemented and general requirements.
