Safety Inspections

The Director of the IMS will commission health and safety inspections of the facilities' activities at least two times per year. The purpose of the inspections is to ascertain the extent of compliance with the health and safety arrangements described in this handbook.

Supervisors will be informed of findings of the inspection of their own areas and provided with general comments from the full IMS inspection.

It is the responsibility of supervisors and group leaders to perform checks at regular intervals in-between inspections to confirm that the requirements of the IMS Health and Safety Policy are being satisfied and that adequate records are being kept.
