Health and Safety audits concentrate on assessing the effectiveness of school, faculty, residence or facility procedures in meeting the requirements of University health and safety policies and therefore satisfying statutory provisions. Auditing and monitoring are therefore essential management tools in the implementation and development of safety systems and promoting a good health and safety culture at the University.

The objectives of health and safety auditing are to:

  • provide evidence and assurance to Council that the University is satisfying statutory requirements;
  • enable evaluation of management systems, determine any deficiencies and action cost-effective and efficient solutions;
  • check practices against procedures and to document any differences;
  • identify new or improved standards, guidance or policies which could promote a safer environment within the University.
