Why should NHBC audit your health and safety?

Our health and safety consultants spend every day working with our customers on health and safety matters; whether it's helping develop policies and procedures, undertaking site inspections or acting as CDM co-ordinators. We know what best practice looks like, and how to implement it. Accordingly, our health and safety audits are rooted in this practical experience, and are the only health and safety audits specifically tailored to the home-building industry.

NHBC Audit and Accreditation

Designed to test the effectiveness of health and safety systems, and benchmark them between divisions/subsidiaries and with comparable companies in the industry, this audit will help identify areas of vulnerability, and reduce risk.

The audit process has recently been completely refreshed to give it a consultative and pro-active approach to help our customers improve their health and safety systems and processes. As a result the audit includes the corporate health and safety culture, and interpersonal and management skills, as well as the details of health and safety practice.
