Comprehensive course materials include the best–selling Taylor & Francis book ‘HSEQ Audits – A Risk-based Approach’ which was written Stephen Asbury who works for Corporate Risk Systems Limited; and who regularly teaches on the course. A signed copy of the book is included within the course fee for each participant.
Throughout the course, participants work as auditors to appraise the Health, Safety and Environmental Management System (HSE-MS) of Petros Barola Ltd, a fictitious but highly realistic case study based on the distribution department of an integrated petrochemicals company located on the Caribbean island of Barola. The intensive five-day programme consists of a rich blend of tutorials, workshops and hands-on activities within the audit case study. Participants work in small teams, each led by an experienced Lead Auditor as they conduct an opening meeting, plan the audit, and interview Petros employees in the fieldwork stage.
Interviewees provide documents for the auditors to review, analyse and use as they would in a real audit. The culmination of the class is a closing presentation to the senior management of the company.
The course is designed to introduce both new and experienced auditors to a dynamic risk-based approach for assessing the effectiveness of any HSE-MS, including those based upon ISO 14001 and OHSAS 18001/ISO 45001.
The course has also proven extremely beneficial for preparing technically competent line managers and supervisors prior to secondment to an audit team.
