Safety and quality check before inspection is strongly recommended now more than ever. These are an excellent way for our customers to reference our commitment to safe work practice and minimise hazards at the workplace.

Our safety and quality check before inspection provides a comprehensive method for involving building inspectors in the process of eliminating workplace hazards. Our safety stepback checklist is an online system that we filled up first before we start any inspection. This is created from the three popularly ways of safety inspections (checklists, general knowledge, and risk mapping). Moreover, we also included questions about COVID-19 and the potential site risks.

We have tailored our checklist to meet the needs of our inspection to a residential or commercial property. We didn’t use a pre-made checklist as we have utilised our level of knowledge about workplace-related safety practices.

All the results of our safety and quality check before inspection and any action taken in addressing or resolving safety hazards are documented well.
