Coorporate just issued us the requirement of conducting a full facility safety audit weekly. Does everyone already have a ready made templet so I can adjust it for our own facility. BTW were a laminate floor manufacturing facility.
We've just released a free iPad App called 'iAuditor' It allows you to perform audits with speed and efficiency.
You can take photos, and email completed checklists quickly and easily.
The online cloud means that you can also download ready-to-use templates that people all over the world have created.
You never know, there might already be a template available for you to download!

Hope that helps Susan, let me know if you have any questions.
Hi Susan. Are you looking for a paper checklist that can be printed and filled-out, or a software solution like Tom mentioned? I think you would be better served by first looking at your recordable injuries, near misses and hazard assessments (JHA's) and building the audit questions from that.
Depending on the size of the facility and the number of EE's, what type of "full facility" audits are they expecting? A full audit, adequately prepared for i.e. checklists, previous findings, review of corrective actions implemented etc can take anywheres from 1/2 a day to 2 full days. Then you have to consider the outputs - audit reports, issuance of corrective actions, assignment of responsibilities etc.
Or are they just wanting a simple walk through checklist type audit, fire extuinguishers, means of egress, PPE, machine guarding.
I would push back on what it is they want specifically. I would think a full blown audit weekly would actually minimize effectiveness by creating a paper monster.
