For larger workplaces, it may not be practical to conduct a formal inspection of the entire workplace in a single session, or for a complete inspection to be done by the same representatives. You should consider doing inspections in more manageable units, for example, by department. As part of a planned programme of inspections, you may also want to think about different groups of representatives conducting inspections in different parts of the workplace. They could do this either simultaneously or at different times, as long as coverage is complete before the next session of inspections is due.
