Performing an audit is not difficult, and it is not something that requires very much training. You know what tools you use, how they perform, and if they are not operating properly. You also know where the eyewash, the shower, the first aid kits, and fire extinguishers are. Checking them and noting them on the tag or in a book is recommended and something to get into a habit of doing.
