Today we are releasing a major update to the Environment and Safety Audit.
Some of the highlights include:
- Increased coverage of the new Standards and the Diversity Framework
- Questions re-ordered and grouped to align with underlying samples and evidence
- Ability to track and record samples, non-compliances and related evidence
- Questions cross-referenced to cover both current and draft Standards
While this Audit is next scheduled for November, we encourage members to complete it now.
Recommendation: As you complete the Audit, if you are unsure whether or not your service is compliant, please consider marking it non-compliant. This will allow you to identify/confirm any current gaps, and put a plan in place to close gaps and demonstrate improvement during the second audit cycle.
If you have feedback on the new Audit, please contact Gail Harding directly firstname.lastname@example.org or attend one of our Network Meetings.
There will be several more updates coming over the next 6 weeks, and we will keep you posted as we release new updates.
