What to do with your Health and Safety inspection sheets after you have completed them

Now that we have established Why you have to do Health and Safety inspection sheets, How to do Health and Safety inspection sheets and what the types of Health and Safety inspection sheet we need to know what to do with them.

It depends what happened during your inspection. If there were no findings they can be safely filed and stored until you review them before the next Health and Safety inspection or Safety Committee meeting.

If there were findings there are a few processes that needs to take place but those processes will depend on the type of findings. Let me give some examples.

  • Broken tools and equipment:
    • It must be brought under the attention of the direct supervisor or manager.
    • Equipment and tools must be removed, repaired or replaced;
    • Must be discussed in the next Safety Committee meeting;
    • The finding must be reinspected on a set date;
  • New hazards identified:
    • If the hazard is serious work should be stopped;
    • It must be brought under the attention of the direct supervisor or manager;
    • The relevant risk assessments must be revised;
    • Control measures must be put in place;
    • The findings must be discussed at the next Safety Committee meeting;
    • A followup inspection must be performed on a predetermined date;

These are only two of the many processes that can take place. All inspection records must be safely stored for future use. They will be used as evidence in an investigation should there be an accident or incident.
