An inspection should achieve several purposes:
~Identify existing and potential hazards
~Identify safety code violations
~Determine underlying causes of hazards
~Monitor hazard controls
~Determine corrective action to minimize or eliminate hazards
~Reinforce and promote safe work practices
It should be seen as a fact-finding rather than a fault-finding exercise.
All areas need to be inspected including shop, yard, and office.
Section 7.4(5) (e) of the Workplace Safety & Health Act states that a workplace safety and health program must include a schedule for the regular inspection of the workplace and of work processes and procedures at the workplace.
