What’s the point of safety audits?
To make sure that the work place and Non-profit Organization environment is safe and all problems are corrected before an incident occurs. There should be set policy and procedures for all work areas that should be inspected and audited. Routine audits should occur once a month to evaluate the procedures that are in place. The Non-profit Organization supervisor should conduct daily safety checks and document them weekly. If safety deficiencies are found, they should be documented in the audit and addressed immediately. Equipment inspections that should be reviewed monthly include: smoke detectors, emergency lighting, fire extinguishers, kitchen equipment, and children’s toys.
