Safety (Internal ) Auditor Training

Formerly called Internal Auditor Training: This three-day safety auditor training course is designed for those who will be evaluating the effectiveness of their company health and safety program. Program audits are a very cost-effective method of measuring existing management systems. In this program, you will learn how quality audits reduce risk through a systems approach that maintains a focus on accident reduction.

Participants will have structured class activities during each morning of the three days.  Afternoons are intended to be used to work on their “student” audit which must be completed within 2 weeks of the last day of the course.

Topics covered via awareness and application exercises:

  • Introduction to Health and Safety Program Audits

  • Legislation

  • The Audit Process

  • The Audit Document and Workshop

    • Documentation

    • Observational tour

    • Interviews

  • Writing Quality Comments

  • Auditor Executive Summary Report

  • NSNY Quality Assurance

In addition to the above topics, participants must also complete and submit an internal audit within 2 weeks of the last day of the course.
