What is a gap analysis?
A gap analysis is used by businesses as a tool to identify safety gaps within their organisation. A trained consultant will undertake a gap analysis and determine where a business currently is and, more importantly, where it needs to be.
Health and Safety legislation can be fast-moving, so it is wise to hire trained consultants to undertake a gap analysis for your business. This offers the peace of mind that your business is being reviewed compliantly.
A gap analysis will include an extensive inspection of your business, including reviewing policies and procedures, looking at your current business status and revisiting your current practices. A gap analysis will help you make the first steps toward an improved health and safety management system.
Is gap analysis a legal requirement?
Although not a legal requirement, a gap analysis will help you set health and safety objectives to keep your workers safe.
