Reviews / Internal Audit

The organization should implement a SMBWA (Safety Management By Walking Around) procedure.

The workplace should be periodically reassessed for any changes in conditions, equipment or operating procedures that could affect occupational hazards. This periodic reassessment should also include a review of injury and illness records to spot any trends or areas of concern and taking appropriate corrective action. The suitability of existing PPE, including an evaluation of its condition and age, should be included in the reassessment.

Changes proposed as a result of the review/internal audit should meet the requirements of clause 12.9 Communication, participation and consultation.

The review should be documented and signed off by the appropriate stakeholders.
