WHS (Work Health & Safety) Audits

A WHS audit is a detailed review of your organisation’s occupational health and safety policies and procedures. This effective management tool can provide a complete snapshot, at any given time, of your position in relation to WHS laws and standards. It will illustrate your risks in relation to the audit area and provide recommendations for improvement, promoting a safe and compliant workplace.

What we do

Our experienced WHS auditors provide a range of services, depending on your organisation’s requirements, including:

  • Gap analysis
  • Compliance audits
  • Hazardous substances and Dangerous Goods audits
  • Specific audits such as emergency evacuation, fire safety or first aid

While there are countless audits that could be performed, many organisations are unsure where to start. We can define the scope of a potential audit by completing a thorough analysis of your workplace. Our certified auditors follow a specially developed audit protocol that will assist your organisation to meet its legislative requirements and due diligence requirements including government standards required for tenders, and WHS management systems such as AS/NZS 4801 and OHSAS 18001.

How we work

Graham A Brown & Associates takes the complexity out of auditing. Our international reputation follows more than 500 environmental, quality, social and WHS audits that we’ve carried out since our inception.

Our experienced and qualified WHS auditors employ a systematic, objective assessment process that includes examining documents, interviewing staff and observing your workplace. As a result, we’ll gain an overall picture of your risks and opportunities in relation to the audit area and make recommendations for improvement and legal compliance. We communicate these recommendations to all required levels of the organisation.

Who we work with

Some organisations may not have the policies or procedures in place to deal with a potential WHS issue. We work proactively with our clients to ensure they have the systems in place to deal with adverse issues before they happen. We are experienced working in industries as varied as retail, not-for-profit, civil construction, manufacturing, transport, ports and airports, petroleum and gas, and mining.
