Abstract Methods are described for ensuring that the workplace and its equipment receive regular scrutiny in order to discover hazards and assess risks. These include: safety audits in which every feature of the operational system is carefully scrutinised in order to identify all the loss factors (accident causes) within the workplace and to minimise and eliminate them; safety surveys in which a specific area of concern is examined in depth; routine schedules safety inspections of individual plants, departments, sections or work sites; safety tours; safety sampling; theme inspections; and inspection of documents.
