An audit is an in-depth evaluation of all your occupational health and safety activities, regardless of their scope.

When taking charge of the health and safety management process, an audit is often the first step. The findings of the audit become the benchmark for building a solid action plan. Audits are also the preferred way for companies to ensure that they are complying with the law regarding health and safety and that nothing has been overlooked.

What to expect during an audit?

We’ll look at everything: your company’s programs, procedures, action plans, communications and resources, and its structure. We’ll interview various health and safety stakeholders to assess the OHS culture.

We will consolidate all our observations in a detailed report that we will give you. This document will provide a clear idea of the status of all health and safety activities relevant to you. We’ll take your business objectives and the challenges you face into account when we suggest a sequence of actions to carry out according to a flexible schedule. This way, you can tackle the priorities in the right order.

Santinel can assist you in presenting this action plan to the CNESST or to your company managers.

Confined spaces, harassment, emergency measures, machine safety—if you feel that a health and safety activity has significant deficiencies and you wish to examine it in depth, an activity-based audit is what you’re looking for.

This meticulous evaluation of activities will give you an accurate picture of your current procedures, compliance, level of employee adherence to your OHS policies and improvements to make within your company.

In the report, our experts will provide an evaluation of your company’s stakeholders and corresponding recommendations necessary to achieve the level of OHS performance you are aiming for.

A prevention program is an essential health and safety tool that is, without a doubt, the main reference document to guide a company’s actions on health and safety.

It contains an inventory of the risks associated with the company’s operations and the employer’s obligations regarding these risks. Above all, it provides a detailed action plan of the methods to control and reduce these risks.
All health and safety activities that impact a company, from psychosocial risk management to machine safety, emergency measures, industrial hygiene, ergonomics, etc., must be covered in the prevention plan.

A prevention program cannot simply be scribbled on the corner of a table. It requires pooling numerous fields of expertise, all of which you’ll find at Santinel.

Contact us and we’ll be happy to create your prevention program, or improve or update the one you currently have. We’ll work closely with your team to build a customized program representative of your situation and geared towards your objectives.

The OHS diagnosis consists of a summary analysis of your company’s health and safety status to identify the main stress points and guides you towards the next actions to take.
In short, it is a “light” full audit. As its name suggests, the OHS diagnosis is also more geared towards identifying problems.
You could opt for an OHS diagnosis rather than an audit in several situations:

  • An audit seems to be a disproportionate means of investigation for the small or medium-sized business that you manage. However, you still feel that your company’s OHS is due for some form of comprehensive evaluation.
  • You want to make sure you’re putting your efforts in the right places and want outside input on your priorities.
  • You suspect you have problems, but can’t determine their level of severity.
  • Etc.
