Audit Questionnaire

  • Are slings in good working order (free of cuts, nicks, or showing wear threads)?

    Ask the employee(s) to show you the web slings that they use in their area. Visually inspect the sling(s) for signs of being compromised and unserviceable. If the sling is not in serviceable condition, mark the answer no.
    This is to prevent the use of unserviceable slings which may contribute to a lift-related accident. Mark the answer as no and request that the employee take the sling to their nearest leadership team member for immediate replacement.

  • Are lifting magnets in good working order (handle rotates and locks, not modified, rating tag present and readable)?

    Ask the employee(s) to show you any lifting magnet device in their area. Visually inspect the device for signs of modification, ensure that the handle rotates freely and locks in on position properly. Check the load rating on the magnet and ensure that it can be clearly read.
    This check ensures we avoid any lift-related accident caused by faulty or damaged lifting magnets. If a magnet is questionable or bad, please ask the employee to immediately remove the magnet from service by tagging it request their nearest leadership team member to replace it.

  • Are all tools properly marked and/or identified as approved by the SAFEME program?

    Ask the employee(s) to show you the tools they use at their workstation (such as chisels, stamps, wrenches, etc.). Are these tools marked with an identifying number or stamp, or do they appear to be purchased tools? If yes, the answer to this question is yes, if questionable, mark no and note what you've observed.
    This will help us identify tools that need review to make sure they are safe to use and are approved by Safety and the ME team. Mark no, and record what tools you've found and what condition they are in. You can also upload photos to help indentifying the tools.

  • Are all chains/lifting device sets properly tagged and in good working condition?

    Ask the employee(s) to show you what chains and/or lifting devices they use. Is there a tag present on the lifting device? Is it legible? Does the lifting device show signs of excessive wear such as a bent or stretched link or worn gripper/tooth? If no legible tag or signs of abnormal wear, mark no for the answer and record the deficiency. Then, please ask the employee(s) to request a review by their leadership to determine further actions required.
    This will prevent lifting-related incidents due to misuse or use of damaged lifting devices. It also serves as compliance checks for regulatory audits. Record observations and request the employee(s) to notify their leadership.

  • Are all hammers in use in good working order?

    Ask the employee(s) to show you any hammers they use. Visually inspect the hammer and look for signs of any modification to the head or handle of the hammer. If the hammer is not in its original state as purchased. If not, mark as non-conformance and note your observations.
    This will prevent use of hammers that have been modified and altered that no longer comply with regulatory and safety standards which may contribute to a hammer-related injury to an employee. If non-conforming, mark no and note your observation. Ask the employee to request a new hammer from their leadership team.
