All audit tools used in PIR are approved by Alberta Labour - Partnerships. The questions must meet Partnerships standards with respect to intent, question content, balance between all elements, and balance of the three (3) different verification techniques (documentation, interview, and observation).

The AMHSA Municipal Health and Safety Audit Tool has been approved by Partnerships and any changes made to it must also be approved.  

AMHSA, as the Certifying Partner for the municipal sector, requires that any municipality participating in PIR must conduct its audits using the AMHSA Municipal Health and Safety Audit workbook or eCompliance tool. Auditors must be certified by AMHSA.

Note: 

  • Make sure you download the audit tool from the website for each new audit you perform. 
  • We recommend backing up your work regularly.
  • AMHSA’s Audit Workbook and eCompliance tools are both designed for use with Windows based PCs. Features may not be compatible with other platforms.

NEW FOR 2022:

  • March: The on-site data gathering suspension has been lifted. Auditors may now resume on-site data gathering activities, or continue to work remotely. Prior to conducting on-site data gathering activities, both the auditor and employer must agree that on-site work can be safely conducted. The use of observations remains optional.
  • Interviews: to be conducted remotely using web-based platforms (e.g. Teams, Zoom, Facetime, etc.) or telephone calls.
  • COR Certification: Documentation and Interviews required (minimum six months documentation in previous 12 month period). Passing score 80% overall.
  • COR Maintenance: Documentation and interviews required (minimum six months documentation in previous 12 month period). Passing score 60% overall. Action Plans in lieu of COR maintenance audits option is available – application deadline is June 30, 2022.
  • SECOR audits: six months of documentation in previous 12-month period. 80% overall required for Certification and 60% overall for Maintenance.
