    Safety Program Audits 

    Identify ways to mitigate risk, streamline compliance, and prioritize employee well-being with Align Safety Program Audits.


Take Your Safety Program to the Next Level

Whether you are looking to upgrade your existing safety program or develop one for the first time, our proven safety audit process will spotlight powerful risk management strategies and tactical opportunities to improve your organization's safety posture  to reduce overall liability. 

   Improves Safety & Compliance
  • Audits help ensure the construction organization complies with local, state, and federal safety regulations and standards. This can prevent legal issues, fines, and penalties associated with non-compliance.
  • By addressing these issues promptly, organizations can create a safer working environment, reducing the likelihood of accidents and injuries among workers.
  • Safety audits also create other benefits, which may include reducing the environmental impact of construction activities.
  Foster Continuous Improvement

Conducting recurring safety audits encourages a culture of continuous improvement. They provide insights into areas that need enhancement and help organizations develop and implement safety improvement plans.

 Boost Worker Morale, Retention & Productivity

A safe working environment boosts employee morale and job satisfaction. Workers are more likely to stay with an organization that values their safety and well-being.

Safe working conditions can lead to increased worker productivity. Employees who feel safe are more likely to focus on their tasks and perform at their best.

  Keep You Protected Legally

Audits can identify potential risks and liabilities, allowing organizations to implement risk mitigation strategies to protect themselves from costly legal disputes.

In the event of a workplace accident or lawsuit, having a documented history of safety audits and compliance efforts can provide legal protection for the organization.

  Reduce Financial Burdens

Preventing accidents and injuries through safety audits can lead to substantial cost savings associated with medical expenses, insurance premiums, worker replacements, and project delays.

Fewer workplace accidents and injuries mean lower workers' compensation claims, reducing the financial burden on the organization.

  Gain a Competitive Advantage

Organizations with a strong safety record can use it as a competitive advantage when bidding on projects, as it can set them apart from competitors.

Construction companies that prioritize safety build a positive reputation in the industry. This can attract more clients, lead to repeat business, and foster good stakeholder relationships.

Clients often prefer to work with construction companies that prioritize safety, as it demonstrates a commitment to project quality and worker well-being. This can lead to increased business opportunities.

  Peace of Mind for Everyone

Knowing that safety practices are regularly reviewed and improved upon can provide peace of mind for management, employees, and stakeholders.
