By evaluating the history of the site’s recorded hazards and how they were handled, various types of workplace inspections can be selected to determine the health and safety status of your workplace or construction site.

There are several different ways to carry out a workplace inspection. As per HSE.Gov there are:
Safety sampling refers to strongly observing specific activities around the workplace that could oppose a potential danger to people on site. This method of workplace inspection is done by identifying hazardous activities across the site, watching the process, and evaluating how the risks can be reduced.
Safety tours involve a simple tour of the site to study the activities taking place and identify ways to reduce any associated risks. Safety tours are important because they can be extremely effective, allowing the inspector to develop a general understanding of how the site operates and suggest any necessary improvements to improve the health and safety of the site, purely through touring the site.
A safety survey is a general inspection that focuses on specific activities, areas, or actions that could potentially pose a danger to the workplace. This type of workplace inspection is effective because safety improvements can be made based on previous incidents and how they can be prevented in the future.
This method of workplace health and safety inspection focuses on accidents that have previously occurred within the site. It involves analysing the causes of the hazards and putting regulations in place to prevent similar accidents from happening in the future. This is important because it helps to prevent accidents from recurring and improves the safety of specific tasks and activities.
