Audits evaluate the effectiveness of safety plans, double-check that processes are still accurate and determine if established procedures are being followed. Because they can be time-consuming, facilities don't tend to perform audits frequently. However, just as preventative maintenance schedules for equipment increases reliability; audits can pre-emptively identify hazards resulting in the prevention of injuries and fatalities.

Why Should you Attend
What is the essence of conducting a health and safety audit? An audit may be an independent event or part of an ongoing program. The main reason for any organization to conduct a health and safety audit is to provide assurance that the workplace is free from recognized hazards that could harm employees, the environment or public. In concert with the previous, companies also have a legal obligation to identify, understand and comply with federal, state and local requirements to maintain license to operate.

Additionally, the quality and effectiveness of your health and safety management systems must be regularly examined. It has been observed over time that when major accidents occur and investigations are being conducted, the root causes of these accidents/incidents are usually from the miscarriage of health and safety management.

The topic will discuss the laws and regulations applicable to safety and health audits and how to avoid violating those rules. Finally, we will examine the potential ways that employers can bring safety and health audits under some type of legal privilege in order to avoid disclosure of those audits to an OSHA investigator.

Topic Background
An audit is a systematic and, wherever possible, independent examination to determine whether activities and related results conform to planned arrangements and whether these arrangements are implemented effectively and are suitable to achieve the organization's policy and objectives.

The health and safety management audit is a structured process of collecting independent information on the efficiency, effectiveness and reliability of the total health and safety management system and drawing up plans for corrective action.

Auditing examines each stage in the health and safety management system by measuring compliance with the controls the organization has developed, with the ultimate aim of assessing their effectiveness and their validity for the future.
