The auditors would like to thank all employees of the Carpentry Program for participating in this safety audit process. Interviewees were very forthcoming and willing to share stories of how they utilize the safety program.

Most of the audit findings represent relatively minor variances from regulatory requirements. Recommendations provided in this report aim to address each of the findings and improve OH&S performance.
The next requirement for the Carpentry Program is to develop an action plan to address all recommendations and key suggestions for improvements from this report.
