Inspections And Audits

A SAFAS independent inspection gives you the security of knowing that your premises could pass a Local Authority visit - and if not, what needs to be done to meet the required standards. We can make a detailed inspection of your premises covering:

Current Documentation procedures & information recorded
Legal Compliance
Quality of Hygiene and Safety Standards
Working practices
Structure of the building and equipment


In fact a very similar inspection to that of an Environmental Health Officer. If you have already put in place your own policies and procedures, then a regular SAFAS audit will test that they are being followed and complied with.
