Compare the following common areas data being sought by a Safety Audit and Safety Assessment Questionnaire by completing TABLE 1 (opposite) and comment on any differences of requirements and coverage.
As a general comment state any shortcomings you feel may be present in either type of document and any suggestions for improving the report.

Complete a concise Safety Audit Report on your place of work or part of it using the Safety Audit Report attached (pages 4 – 7) or one of your own design. Assessment can be by awarding marks or other satisfactory means of assessment.
Explain any means of assessment used or scale of marking.
Clearly indicate where appropriate in the comments column whether the areas covered are satisfactory and also state briefly the reasons why you feel the overall result of the audit is satisfactory or not.

Complete the Safety Assessment Questionnaire attached (pages 8 – 14), which can be for a real or imaginary situation or location. Questions may be added or omitted/struck out if not applicable. Avoid the use of actual names and instead use job titles (e.g. Safety Advisor – Safety Manager or Safety Consultant). Answers should be brief (where appropriate yes/no, for example). Comments should be added where appropriate and a general comment should be made as to whether the safety aspect or situation is satisfactory or not.

(a) Invent or select an area of a workplace with which you are familiar and draw a plan upon which is marked the positions of all safety and emergency equipment. Include in the plan any fire hoses, break glasses, fire extinguishers, eye wash bottles, sirens, safe areas, warning notices, escape routes, mustering points, etc. Provide a legend for any symbols used.
Describe an emergency plan with which you are familiar or formulate an imaginary emergency plan incorporating the roles and responsibilities of the control and rescue personnel. Indicate the lines of communication and the situation of any central control station.
FIGURE 1 shows a building with safety equipment installed. The  old car park that was the designated muster point in an emergency is to be moved to the position shown for the new car park. The DCS, Switch and Emergency Supply rooms are to be extended to accommodate extra equipment for a process plant extension. The safety equipment and signs for these rooms are shown in their pre- extension positions. Relocate the safety equipment in the extended rooms by modification of FIGURE 1 to indicate new escape routes and a new muster point. State briefly the reasons for your selections.
