Health & Safety, Environment and Quality Audits
Internal Auditing is an essential tool for managing compliance with health and safety, environmental safety and quality standards. Increasingly these three areas are audited by the same professionals to proliferating standards (e.g. OHSAS 18001 for health and safety, ISO 9001 for quality, ISO 14001 for environment). This book delivers a powerful and proven approach to auditing business-critical risk areas. It covers each of the aspects that need to be taken into account for a successful audit to recognised standards and is an important resource for auditors, managers, health and safety professionals, and anyone with a critical interest in governance and organizational improvement.
