The Survey

This survey is based on the requirements of the Workplace (Health, Safety and Welfare) Regulations 1992. These regulations are applicable to a wide range of workplaces and includes not only factories, shops and offices but also schools, hospitals and places of entertainment.

This is a detailed audit that specifically identifies areas of non - compliance and lists the necessary remedial actions together with budget costs.

This important survey identifies whether staff and visitors are able to operate within a building(s) without detriment to their well being and confirms that the building environment does not compromise the quality of service that staff are able to provide.

It lists not only recommendations for improvement where items are mandatory but will suggest improvements for the general safety and welfare of building users.
