Workplace inspections help prevent injuries and illnesses. Through critical examination of the workplace, inspections identify and record hazards for corrective action. Regular workplace inspections are an important part of the overall occupational health and safety program.

As an essential part of a Health & Safety and Food Safety program, workplaces should be inspected as they allow you to:

»Listen to the concerns of workers and supervisors,

»Identify existing and potential hazards,

» Determine underlying causes of hazards,

»Monitor hazard controls (personal protective equipment, engineering controls, policies, procedures)

»Recommend corrective action.

At Alchemy, our every inspection, we examine who, what, where, when and how. We pay particular attention to items most likely to develop unsafe or unhealthy conditions because of stress, wear, impact, vibration, heat, corrosion, chemical reaction or misuse. Our consultants will inspect the entire workplace area or a particular area.

Alchemy Consultants look at all workplace elements - the environment, the equipment and the process. The environment includes such hazards as noise, vibration, lighting, temperature, and ventilation. Equipment includes materials, tools and apparatus for producing a product or a service. Our process involves how the worker interacts with the other elements in a series of tasks or operations. We also look at Biological, Chemical, Physical, Psychological and Ergonomic hazards in a workplace.
