Health and Safety Audits for schools and small businesses
The Health and Safety Executive suggest that organisations should have formal procedures for auditing and reporting health and safety performance. Furthermore that business leaders should ensure that any audit is perceived as a positive management and boardroom tool. It should have unrestricted access to both external and internal auditors, keeping their cost-effectiveness, independence and objectivity under review.
Arrampica may use various codes and guidance (many of them sector-specific) to help us produce a useful report on health and safety performance and risk management as part of a clients evidence of good governance.
