Worksite HSE Observation and Inspection

Health, Safety and Environmental (HSE) Observations are planned to complete whether the performance of operations is following the procedures which are organized to carry out the work safely and in a better way. During HSE, which should be done by two people, a work task will be observed and inspected for some time. It is recommended to inform those who be observed in your activities so they do not get the idea to be “scrutinize”. Afterwards, you can discuss the results and stores them on a specially designed form to monitor the results.

The objective or aims of Health, Safety and Environmental (HSE) Observations are to make people aware of their behavior by entering into conversation, communication and coordination with them. It should be a dialogue, not a lecture, otherwise, people feel patronized or the opposite will be reached. It is also necessary to discuss not only the bad or unsafe & insecure situations, but also to discuss the positives. Discussing the employer encourages the employee to work even safer. For health and safety observations you can make a “Checklist. Health, Safety and Environmental (HSE) Observations” to ensure that they observe all the important and key points. If during the observation new concerns come forward, then you can add it to this “HSE Observations Checklist”. This checklist is established to provide support for the manager and or project engineer and not as a guideline because they always have to look beyond the checklist.

What Does Observed in HSE Observations?

The following is observed during HSE Observations:

  • Compliance with safety rules and regulations
  • Correct Utilization of PPE
  • Correct and safe use of tools/machines
  • Proper Handling of hazardous substances
  • Appropriate handling of environmentally harmful substances

 HSE Workplace Inspections & Observations

Health, Safety and Environmental (HSE) Inspections for the workplace is different from observation. During the HSE workplace inspection the look at some calculated items such as the following:

  • Housekeeping, Order and Cleanliness Workplace
  • Presence and Use of PPE
  • Check First Aid Kit
  •  Check Grades and Test Fire Plus Devices
  • State of Tools
  • State of Machine (s)
  • Permit to Work (PTW)

It is recommended for the manager, project engineer or HSE coordinator to create a standard checklist, workplace HSE checklist inspection to be looked at fixed points. You can see after some time, using trend analysis, what you are good at and where are possible points for improvement.

Workplace HSE Observation and Inspection Within Organization

As designated supervisors perform the HSE observation and workplace inspection, but it can also be beneficial if a higher safety expert performs the HSE observation and workplace inspection. A certified Health, Safety and Environmental (HSE) expert is trained to be keen on all counts and allows him to do the HSE observation and work inspection. Provenance can perform an HSE observation and workplace inspection for you and help to create an “HSE Observations Checklist”. We HSE Documents can also help you to implement the observation technique, as well as doing the workplace inspections by using formats.
