If you have employees in California, you are required to complete a site safety assessment. This risk assessment is designed to identify and record any health and safety hazards that may exist at a workplace, along with corrective and protective measures
A site safety assessment should be undertaken by those that are trained in risk reduction and hazard assessments along with the control measures needed to keep workers safe in all places of employment. General public safety hazards must also be included in all safety assessments.
You’ll be expected to identify all obvious hazards and to articulate, in writing and in action, how you plan to reduce the risk to workers through training, safe work plans, personal protective equipment and culture.
Every workplace is unique, but the health and safety of workers and the general public is universal and risks must be controlled and/or eliminated.
Site safety assessments should be completed daily in the form of a PRE-Shift Inspection, along with periodic hazard assessments. Here is a good checklist to include in your efforts.
