The course would be appropriate for those who have attended audit courses that focus principally on audit criteria rather than audit skills.
This course would be appropriate for those who wish to conduct audits at an internal level, of contractors or suppliers and at an independent third party level. This makes it suitable for managers, as well as local or corporate health and safety practitioners.
The course is designed for those who wish to develop a positive approach to internal auditing, ensuring the long-term effectiveness of audit programmes and improvement in the management of health and safety whilst also maintaining a high level of information security.

- Evaluate an organisation’s OH&S policy, management system and programmes
