OHSAS 18001 2007 Internal Audit Program

This web page will introduce our OHSAS 18001 Internal Audit Program.
However, it will not present the complete audit program. Instead, it will
show you how our audit program is organized and it will explain how
it works. Once you've examined our approach, we hope you'll consider
purchasing our complete OHSAS 18001 2007 Internal Audit Program.

Our OHSAS 18001 Internal Audit Program (Title 67) is 105 pages
long and is available in both pdf and MS doc file formats.

Introduction to OHSAS 18001 Audit Program

Our Occupational Health and Safety Audit
Program is made up of four programs:

  1. OHSAS 18001 Compliance Audit Program

  2. OHSAS 18001 Policy Audit Program

  3. OHSAS 18001 Procedures Audit Program

  4. OHSAS 18001 Records Audit Program

Each of these four programs will be discussed below.

We begin with a table of contents. It shows how we've organized
our OHSAS 18001 Internal Audit Program. While the content of each
program is different, the following material shows that each one of
our four audit programs is organized in the same way.

Our Audit Program is easy to understand and ready to use.

Overview of OHSAS 18001 2007 Compliance Audit Program

Our Compliance Audit Program uses questions to list the six sets of
occupational health and safety (OH&S) management system requirements
that make up OHSAS 18001 2007. Accordingly, our Audit Program contains
six separate questionnaires:

4.1  General Audit Questionnaire
4.2  Policy Audit Questionnaire
4.3  Planning Audit Questionnaire
4.4  Implementation Audit Questionnaire
4.5  Checking Audit Questionnaire
4.6  Review Audit Questionnaire

Our compliance audit questions start with section 4.1 because
the OHSAS 18001 requirements start in section 4.1.

Two answers are possible for each question: YES or NO. YES answers
mean youíre in compliance with the standard and NO answers mean
youíre not in compliance. NO answers point to compliance problems
(also known as nonconformities or noncompliances).

Once youíve answered all the compliance audit questions, youíre
ready to summarize your audit, calculate compliance scores, draw
general audit conclusions, and make and implement recommendations
to address your compliance problems.
 


Overview of OHSAS 18001 2007 Policy Audit Program

Our Policy Audit covers the following topics:

  1. Management

  2. Documentation

  3. Usability

  4. Training

  5. Implementation

  6. Changes

Start by selecting a policy that you want to audit. Then prepare your Policy
Audit Profile. Before you begin answering policy audit questions, please
record the name of this policy at the top of the Policy Audit questionnaire.
This will help to maintain the focus of your audit.

Three response options are provided: YES, NO, and N/A. NO answers point
to policy performance problems, YES answers identify positive areas, while
N/A responses identify questions that are not applicable in your situation.

Once youíve answered all the audit questions, youíre ready to summarize
your internal audit, calculate policy performance scores, draw general audit
conclusions, and make and implement recommendations to address your
policy performance problems.


Overview of OHSAS 18001 2007 Procedures Audit Program

Our Procedures Audit covers the following topics:

  1. Management

  2. Documentation

  3. Content

  4. Compliance

  5. Usability

  6. Training

  7. Control

  8. Records

  9. Changes

Start by selecting a procedure that you want to audit. Then prepare
your Procedures Audit Profile. Define the scope of your audit, identify
the participants, and prepare a brief audit plan.

Before you begin answering procedures audit questions, please record
the name of this procedure at the top of the Audit questionnaire. This
will help auditors to maintain the focus of their audit.

Three response options are provided: YES, NO, and N/A. NO answers point
to procedural performance problems, YES answers identify positive areas,
while N/A responses identify questions that are not applicable in your
situation.

Once youíve answered all the audit questions, youíre ready to summarize
your audit, calculate procedural performance scores, draw general audit
conclusions, and make and implement recommendations to address
your procedural performance problems.


Overview of OHSAS 18001 2007 Records Audit Program

Our Records Audit Program is partly based on the ISO 15489-1
records management standard and covers the following topics:

  1. Management

  2. Initiation

  3. Recording

  4. Revisions

  5. Access

  6. Maintenance

  7. Retention

  8. Destruction

  9. Reporting

  10. Usability

  11. Authenticity

  12. Protection

  13. Continuity

  14. Training

  15. Auditing

  16. Compliance

Start by selecting a set of records. Our Audit Program can be used to
audit virtually any type of record keeping system. Examples that you may
wish to consider include the following: OH&S training records, planning
records, monitoring records, measurement records, audit records,
management review records, production records, etc.

Once youíve chosen which records to audit, youíre ready to prepare
your Records Audit Profile. Specify the scope of your audit, its location,
the participants, and prepare a brief audit plan.

Before you begin answering record keeping audit questions, please enter
the name of the records being audited at the top of the audit questionnaire.
This will help to ensure that the focus of the internal audit is maintained.
Three response options are provided: YES, NO, and N/A. NO answers
point to record keeping performance problems, YES answers identify
positive areas, while N/A responses identify questions that are not
applicable.

Once youíve answered all the audit questions, youíre ready to summarize
your audit, calculate record keeping performance scores, draw general
audit conclusions, and make and implement recommendations to
address your record keeping performance problems.

The following example will show you what our
OHSAS 18001 Internal Audit Program looks like.
This example is taken from our Compliance Audit Program.
