Choose Your Own Auditing Adventure: Four Customizable Approaches to EHS Auditing from @AnteaGroup
Monday, September 12, 2016 - 9:00am


Compliance audits are a tool commonly employed by EHS managers to evaluate the effectiveness of their programs in meeting national, regional, and local regulatory requirements. Comprehensive audits will present not only findings, but also root causes and corrective actions. Based on internal capabilities and the reality of EHS budgets, companies can decide whether external consultants will play a role in executing audit programs.

When considering an audit program, the ideal solution for your business should:

  • Be easy-to-implement, cost-effective, efficient, and adaptable to the varying needs of each part of the organization;
  • Be supported by comprehensive and applicable audit protocols;
  • Track and manage findings and corrective actions to closure; and
  • Provide configurable reports on audit results.

Benefits of a solid program include being able to compare auditing results from multiple locations (even across different countries), managers getting a real-time view of audit results, the ability to control timing and predict costs accurately, and a repeatable and sustainable process. Compliance becomes part of your culture, and improvement from year to year and audit to audit becomes measurable. In short, better input gets you better output.

So how do you get there? With so many factors to consider, what approach works best for your organization? To help, Antea Group has developed a matrix of audit team concepts for use in determining the best approach for your audit program. Start your adventure on the Antea Group blog.
