Accept the “givens”
  • Integration has happened for us
  • BS8800 showed that ISO 14001 model was acceptable
  • Will not discuss pros & cons of integration - just audit aspects
integrating h s and environmental auditing
Integrating H&S and Environmental Auditing
  • Definition of “Integrated Audit”
  • Practicalities - time / money / resources
  • Evidence of performance improvements
  • How long before safety benefits are visible
  • HSE & EA view
  • Compromising of standards
  • Integration thoroughness
integrated audit definition
Integrated Audit Definition
  • The appraisal of processes to determine whether they are operating as documented….

…. and to determine if they are effective for their stated purpose…….

….and that the stated purpose is a benefit to the business

practicalities of integration
Practicalities of Integration
  • Dependant upon:-
    • Complexity of current audit system
    • similarities of systems
    • Types of Audit:
      • 1st Party - 2nd Party - 3rd Party
    • Big Bang approach v Little & often
    • Horizontal v Vertical audits
      • process e.g. Document Control
      • organisational e.g. Production
  • Rule of thumb
    • The smaller the strategic Business Unit the easier and more cost effective the Audit integration process
performance improvements
Performance Improvements
  • each CAR takes up management time
  • less CARs = more time for managers to do their job
  • each Audit takes up management time
  • less Audits = more time for managers to do their job
  • identification of process synergies & duplications
    • build on one, remove the other
  • move from compliance to procedures to good management practice
  • reduction in ‘audit fatigue’
  • development of business process experts‘super auditors’
how long before safety benefits are visible
How long before safety benefits are visible?
  • Simple question - but almost impossible to measure in simplistic numerical terms
  • Audits highlight failings in safety processes:
    • information flow (documents / structured meetings)
    • planning processes - identify shortcomings in advance
  • Process changes - can be quickly implemented and are seen to add value which drives-
  • Culture Changes measured with complex Culture models to demonstrate positive benefits
    • can do attitude
    • desire to improve
hse ea view
HSE & EA view
  • HSE
  • Measures internal procedures against legislation
  • Measures implementation of procedures
  • Measure effectiveness of procedures
  • EA
  • Measures internal procedures against legislation
  • Measures implementation of procedures

integrated audit thoroughness frequency
Integrated AuditThoroughness & Frequency
  • Traditional Audits look at single Dept procedures only and measured:-
    • Health & Safety compliance
    • Environmental Management
    • Quality Management
    • Industry Specific (Safety Case regimes) compliance
    • An Audit (Sometimes several) for each discipline
  • Integrated Audits look at multiple processes across the Business
    • Still measure compliance
    • Also measure contribution to business success
    • Less specific audits, but more thorough, overall reduction in time

System

Integrated AuditThoroughness & Frequency
  • Traditional
    • Simple Plan Required
    • No Linkages
    • Process Map Dept, not Business
    • Ignores interfaces
    • Output from one audit has nil effect on the next
  • Integrated
    • Robust Plan Required
    • Clear Linkages
    • Process Map Business, not Dept
    • Explore / reveal interfaces
    • Output from one audit feeds input to the next
summary
Summary
  • Integrated audits work at the following levels:-
    • reduction in auditing time
    • increase in effective focusing of resources
    • can provide quick hits and long term improvement
    • can tackle business issues to improve the whole
    • seen as an aid rather than suffered
    • fewer Auditors (We have one for H&S, Env & QA!)
    • less paperwork
