Every audit in Alberta is unique to the industry that it’s in. There are 14 certifying partners in Alberta currently and each has their own health and safety audit. Basically, they’ve done an analysis that hazard identification and hazard control, regardless of what audit you use, is worth 33% of the audit. Inspections is worth 15% for example. The elements of the audit usually for the partnership’s audit consists of management, leadership, and commitment like your health and safety program, the legislation, your roles and responsibilities. Next comes hazard identification where you identify the hazards and perform job safety analysis where for each step of a job, you identify the risks, the hazards, and the control measures. Which leads to element three: hazard control. Which is a hierarchy of controls to control hazards which are engineering controls like ventilation, use of seat belts is use first, followed by administrative controls like safe work practices, safe job procedures, and then PPE.
