Performing Job-Site Safety Audits

Job-site safety audits conducted by safety professionals help drive safety culture and maintain compliance with applicable safety requirements set by OSHA, other regulatory agencies, and general contractors. The balancing act of safety professionals at any company is to implement safety programs and to help field, office, and management staff understand and meet the common goal of everyone getting home safely at the end of the day. Safety audits give safety representatives a chance to talk with employees in the field and develop relationships with the people who are completing the work. This allows for conversation and trust to be built between both the office and field.
