Site Audits

Do You Need A Health & Safety Site Audit?

A Health and Safety Audit is an inspection of your business’ health and safety systems including policies and procedures.

These assessments of your health and safety performance can provide you with:

Can We Conduct a Health & Safety Audit Ourselves?

Yes, audits can be conducted internally or externally. However, H&S Audits must be carried out by a competent person, with appropriate qualifications such as a NEBOSH Certificate. The auditor should also be independent to the part of the organisation being audited.

External health and safety auditors, such as Gaskell Safety’s Consultants, give impartial inspections that are conducted in line with best practices.

What About The Costs?


You only pay for time, from documenting evidence to writing the report, there are no hidden charges or costs.


This will vary from business to business depending on the size and complexity of your business and current management systems.


At Gaskell Safety we have the skills and expertise to audit even the biggest of sites.

Competent Persons

A Competent Person is someone who has sufficient training and experience or knowledge and other qualities that allow them to assist you properly. The level of competence required will depend on the complexity of the situation and the particular help you need.

We supply a competent person at level 6/GRADIOSH to deliver your company a friendly and expert advisory service which includes the following:

  • Certified Service

    We will provide you with a Certificate of Engagement of our External Competent Advisory Service that is valid for one year. This certificate can be included in job tenders or for display so staff and customers feel safe and secure within your workplace.

  • Advisory Guidance

    Our practioner will send your Nominated Responsible Person tailored information relating to your business' Health and Safety questions and queries. This will include step by step guidance on how to deal with and address issues within your working environment.

Every employer is required under the Management of Health & Safety Regulations 1999 to appoint at least one Competent Health and Safety Person to assist them to meet their legal health and safety obligations.

Any employer who has not done this is in breach of their statutory duty under Health and Safety Legislation and therefore becomes liable to criminal prosecution.
