Who is it for?
The audit is designed for those organisations who have developed and implemented an integrated safety, health and environmental management system. The audit is best suited to organisations that require a detailed and objective evaluation of their SHE (safety, health and environmental) system in one comprehensive process. The audit measures performance against best practice indicators. It identifies areas of positive/negative practice and provides a structured approach to continuous improvement.

What does it cover?
The audit goes beyond the requirements of established systems such as OHSAS 18001 and ISO 14001 by benchmarking safety, health and environmental management systems (and arrangements) against current best practice techniques.
