This is a comprehensive HSE management system template which can be used by confirmed staff to evaluate how companies and businesses handle health and safety in their workspace or environment. It is split into 2 sections: HSE management and HSE performance monitoring. Each entails an assessment of HSE management protocols. Finish the audit by giving an overall rating of the HSE management and record all people involved in the assessment. See also the HSE internal template for an internal HSE audit.
