Management System Auditing
The ERMS approach to auditing is established upon a wealth of practical experience in environmental, health and safety management system implementation, betterment and assessment.
When it comes to having 3rd parties evaluate your management system, independence, knowledge and rigour are critical.
ERMS auditing is used for system evaluation by organisations of many sizes and industries.
Auditing is often utilised for a rigorous pre-certification assessment of a firms’ safety management system prior to evaluation against a recognized standard (such as AS/NZS 4801). This trial run allows the firm to minimise the risk and expense of failing to fulfill the requirements of a certification audit. It can also enhance internal audit requirements.
Auditing the management system provides a clear baseline of system performance, identifies key risk areas where conformance is lacking and delivers recommended corrective measures, thereby protecting staff and finances.
