ASCC works with Approved Safety Audit firms to carry out detailed audit of your factory - machinery, cranes etc. There are FOUR STAGES to an inspection (Safety Audit) Carried out by External Inspector (Chartered Engineer).

The first stage includes information gathering, the assembly of inspection tools and other preparations. This process ensures that the members conducting the inspection are well informed about the area to be visited and better able to identify hazards. Inspection tools include floor plans of the area, flow charts of the work process, checklists and other records.

The second stage involves the physical inspection of the workplace or work area. It should involve talks with workers and supervisors, the use of the inspecting member's senses, knowledge and training to help detect hazards and the use of common sense to identify hazardous situations that could develop under certain conditions. Where hazards are discovered during the inspection that immediately endanger the health or safety of a worker, the member should take the steps required by law, and by the employer's health and safety program, to have the danger removed immediately. This includes immediately reporting the situation to the employer. One purpose of the inspection is to verify that controls installed as a result of a previous inspection are in place and are working properly. Immediately following the inspection, the member should carry out third stage.

The third stage, which is review and writing of the report. The written report should state the place, date and time of the inspection and name the person who conducted it. The findings of the report should describe the potential hazards identified, classify them by priority categories and provide any other relevant information. Classification identifies those potential hazards that need immediate attention. The report may draw conclusions about the potential hazards that have been identified, and recommend controls to reduce or eliminate worker exposure to the potential hazard.

The fourth and the final stage, as per the government standards, the Safety Audit Engineer/Inspector will issue the Safety Audit Certificate.
