National Audit Tool Elements

    • Health and Safety Policy

    • Planning

    • Implementation

    • Measurement and Evaluation

    • Management Review

Performance Benchmark

  • Elements 1, 2, 4 and 5 are addressed by yes / no answer format, whilst in Element 3, a ‘Level of Achievement’ is required:

Level of Achievement for Element 3


  • Each topic under Element 3 is given a weighting ranging from 3-12, and a score is calculated by multiplying the level achieved by the weighting figure.

  • A minimum achievement of 70% of the available score is required in order to meet a minimum acceptable standard.

Continuous Improvement

  • AS/NZS 4801: Occupational health and safety management systems – Guidance with specifications for use; continuous improvement model






Audit Objectives

  • There are two objectives:

    • To ascertain compliance with the requirement of Workplace Health and Safety Queensland’s performance benchmark; and

    • To provide QUT with a meaningful report.

The Audit Process

  • There are three phases of the audit process:

    • Document review;

    • Management, staff (professional and academic) and student interviews; and

    • Workplace inspections.

Example: Workplace Inspections

  • Hazard

    • Chemical decanted into unlabelled spray container.

  • Management System Failure

    • The workplace inspection program may not be detecting the issue.

    • The inspection checklist may not clearly identify a section to check labelling of containers.

    • Staff conducting the inspection may not know to look for unlabelled containers.

    • Managers and employees may not be aware of health and safety requirements for unlabelled containers.

Benefits of the Health and Safety Audit

  • A comprehensive report on your Health and Safety Management System;

  • Clear identification of strengths and areas for improvement together with recommendations for improvement; and

  • A CD containing a presentation of the auditor’s findings together with the audit report.
