Safeopedia Explains Safety Checklist

Each workplace and industry has its own set of hazards, and health and safety professionals must be able to identify which checklists are appropriate to specific workplaces and processes in order to ensure that full compliance with safety standards is achieved in the workplace. Safety checklists provide a tool for determining possible workplace hazards and should be completed during inspections, reported on, used as a basis for safety recommendations and filed for record-keeping purposes. OSHA provides checklists for industries including: radiation safety, explosion safety, fall protection, electrical safety work practices, fixed stars and ladders, occupational injury and illness reporting and more.
