Health & Safety Compliance

Compliance auditing is the process of an independent agency evaluating your business’s facilities to establish whether they’re abiding by best practices and relevant regulations. At Jupiter Facilities Management, we have experience evaluating all aspects of facilities, including fire safety, gas, and electrical systems.

Along with conducting comprehensive assessments of your business, we’ll also ensure you’re keeping correct records, should you ever need proof that you’ve complied with all regulations. For example, most companies are legally required to keep detailed records of their fire safety checks.

Advice After Auditing

Once our compliance audit is complete, we’ll provide you with all the feedback required to make your business compliant with all rules and regulations. By becoming compliant, you won’t only protect yourself from a legal perspective, but you’ll also protect staff and visitors from many dangers present in the workplace.

It’s important to remember that compliance auditing is not a one-off task. Instead, we recommend that auditing is carried out annually to ensure any new rules and regulations are being adhered to and that standards have been maintained. Regular auditing will also help protect you from the potential fines and damage to your reputation that could come with non-compliance.
