The Safety Review Board will adopt a schedule which, based on the relative seriousness of hazards and the risk of accidents potentially presented for any given work area, will identify when the various portions of the workplace will be inspected as a part of such bimonthly inspections. The inspection findings are to be documented on that month's Safety Inspection Report and reviewed during the monthly meetings. A copy of the report is to be attached to the copy of the appropriate Safety Review Board Minutes and filed with the Safety Director. Periodic scheduled inspections conducted by Supervisors or other members of Company Management will also be reviewed by the Board and documented in its minutes.
