A Study on the Preparation of a Safety Audit
Sophiya Sunny Pulickal  | Dhanabal Dhurai
Abstract: Safe jobs are smart constructions since one serious injury can stop the growth of the construction work in its tracks. Safety at the construction site is a very relevant topic that needs to be addressed and given due importance. Everyday construction personnel are exposed to a lot of site perils that could result in injury or even fatality. A complete eradication of these construction site dangers are close to impossibility but, it can be reduced to a considerable extent. A safety audit management system is one step to achieve a better, safe and accident free working environment. An audit is a systematic and wherever possible, independent examination to determine whether activities and related results conform to planned arrangements and whether these arrangements are implemented effectively and are suitable to achieve the organizations policy and objectives. This paper mainly deals with the preparation of a safety audit that could be implemented at a construction site.
