Fire Life Safety Audit

Every organization strives for improving safety record, reducing near misses and deceasing compensation claims. However, work-related accidents continue to be a critical problem. Nobody is averse to complying safety rules; still we come across incidents like injury and death from time to time. An essential component in this regard could be failure in identifying hazards leading to risk exposure. This reflects that the organizations don't conduct safety audit or even if they conduct, the outcome might not be satisfactory.
