Safety audits

Safety audits

Safety audits are conducted as a team about three times each year and it is wise to include a parent in the team.

Keep dangerous equipment and chemicals locked up and an inventory of where they are. Use signs to alert people to where the materials are stored.

Incident registers

High-risk areas become apparent as incident data is collected and safety audits are conducted. To collect data, train employees to enter information into an incident register immediately after each incident.

The following links lead to examples of a safety audit and incident register.

Look for such things as:

  • tripping factors

  • sharp edges

  • splintered wood

  • rusting metal

  • uneven or rough surfaces

  • slippery surfaces

  • uncovered drains

  • protruding tree branches and open windows

  • jutting nails, bolts, rivets or screws

  • unprotected glass

  • chemical hazards

  • sanitary and hygiene hazards.
