Safety Audit and Inspection Scotland
ISO 19011 - The Audit Standard
Auditing is a requirement in all management systems. It allows you to monitor, measure and improve these systems. In today's corporate environment, organisations tend to combine various management systems and processes, such as Safety, Health, Environmental, Quality (SHEQ) and Information Security. In order to harmonise these systems, there is a need to combine their audit processes too.
At 1st Safety Solutions, our auditors are fully qualified to lead auditor status, and we base our audits on the principles of ISO 19011 as it provides the best methodology for auditing management systems. This Standard has been designed to help organisations optimise and facilitate the integration of their management systems. Take a look at how auditing can help you. Get in touch for more information.
