Safety and Health Audits
Safety and Health Audits offer the best return on investment when conducted by experienced and seasoned professionals. When planning a client audit, 1Source is able to provide a well-rounded audit team including Certified Professional Environmental Auditors (CPEA) experienced in all audit procedures along with Certified Industrial Hygienists (CIH) and Certified Safety Professionals (CSP). They come equipped with strong technical knowledge of the national, state, and local safety and health requirements as well as exceptional safety, health and environmental management practice and knowledge.
Safety and Health Audits are beneficial when assessing:
- Regulatory Compliance (OSHA, JCAHO, ADA, State)
- Liability Reduction Opportunities
- Financial Opportunities
- Program Effectiveness
- Continuous Improvement and Benchmarking
- Internal Management Responsibility
- OSHA VPP Qualification
- Pennsylvania AIPP Compliance
- Workers’ Compensation Performance
Typically, audits begin with a pre-audit review of client documents, nature and scope of operations, determining expected hazards and potential exposures. The applicable regulations specific to the client’s Standard Industrial Code (SIC) and North American Industry Classification System (NAICS) can then be defined and preparation for the on-site portion of the audit begun. The onsite portion of the audit begins with a kickoff meeting, site inspection, review of pertinent records/documents, interviews and a closing meeting for review of the findings/comments. Depending on the type, size and purpose of a facility, safety and health audits typically take one to five days of on-site time. Reports are typically completed and provided at the conclusion of the audit during the closing meeting.
