Self-Inspection Checklists

These sample audit and safety inspection checklists are designed to help you evaluate the quality of your company's safety management system (SMS) design and performance. It should be revised as needed to best meet your organization's needs. SMS audits should be reviewed at least annually to look at each of the critical components of the SMS to determine what is working well and what changes, if any, are needed. When you identify needs that should be addressed, you have the basis for a new safety and health objective for program improvement. This audit does not replace any provision, standard, or rule contained in the OSHAct of 1970 or OSHA Standards.
