The need for the safety audit checklist is incorporated in the Singapore government’s Workplace and Safety Act. It is a legislation that aims to protect workers, cut maintenance costs, and enhance operational efficiency.
Safety audits are a legal requirement, but they are also highly beneficial. A safety audit will highlight gaps in your safety measures which could put workers at risk and recommend ways to address those gaps. If existing safety measures are not functioning as designed, a safety audit will highlight this as well.
