Regular inspections ensure the successful implementation of the risk assessment. The check comprises 3 steps:
A person in charge of the check must be appointed. Document the result of the check in writing, see the example of the occupational safety and health administration of North-Rhine Westphalia Checking the measures for efficiency.
Check the implementation and efficiency of the measures immediately after the agreed upon deadline and then continuously at defined intervals.
It is often necessary to observe the efficiency of a measure over a longer period of time, for example regarding the improvement of the employee satisfaction, the reduction of the sickness absence rate, the raising of awareness and motivation among the executive personnel, and/or improved customer satisfaction.
Initially, determine the reason why this hazard is still there. Review and complement and again define measures for eliminating the hazard. Then, certify the efficiency of the measures taken.
