Audit & Compliances
Audits and assessments provide a vital management control for Process Safety Management (PSM), Security Management, and Risk Management (RM) Programs. They help ensure programs are properly designed and implemented. Audits identify program deficiencies so that recommendations can be developed for corrective action. Without regular audits, programs will not stay current and will deteriorate, causing companies to face regulatory and legal liabilities.
Phases of Audit
- Pre-Audit: planning and organizing the audit; establishing the audit objectives, scope and protocol; and reviewing the design of the program by examining documentation;
- On-site Audit: conducting personnel interviews, reviewing records, and making observations to assess program Implementation;
- Post-Audit: preparing a report.
