Car park safety audits

Whilst off-street car parks are generally low speed environments, accidents and injuries can occur. A car park safety audit is a practical way to assess the perceived safety of your parking facility. The findings from a safety audit can include recommendations to address areas within the car park that may impact on driver and pedestrian safety. A car park safety audit can be invaluable in identifying areas that can influence a customers’ perception of safety versus their actual experience. Areas identified may not comply with Australian Standards and Occupational Health and Safety (OHS) laws.
