Audit and Assurance

Why is this important?

Independent audit and assurance is an essential component of best practice in safety management. This is an important tool to ensure officers meet their due diligence duty by providing a level of insight that is independent of internal arrangements and provide answers to the following;

  • How do you know that controls, especially critical controls, are effective?
  • Is your HSE Management system operating as intended?
  • Are your teams conducting effective audits?
  • Does your company or contractors meet the standard?
Critical Risk Management

How can businesses improve

  • Include independent assurance to your existing audit schedule
  • Ensure critical controls are measurable and have auditable performance criteria
  • Review, in practice, the effectiveness and capability of your internal audit function
  • Move to live dashboards and digital solutions for audit and assurance
  • Ensure Board Reports consider audit results from critical risk and control reviews
  • Address gaps and opportunities to optimize Contractor Management performance
