Auditor Resources

AMHSA COR logoAll 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 different verification techniques (documentation, interview, and observation). The Partnerships standards for COR auditing were updated in 2016 and 2018 in consultation with Alberta Certifying Partners. 

The AMHSA Municipal Health and Safety Audit Workbook (and upcoming eCompliance tool) has been revised in order to meet Partnership’s new standards and will be mandatory for use as of January 1, 2019. Auditors certifying or recertifying in 2018 will be trained on the new materials and requirements. Auditors must be certified by AMHSA and must have been trained on a particular audit tool/workbook before using it to conduct an audit. 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. 

Note: If you have received training on the Excel Audit Tool in 2017 or 2018, you do not need to retake Audit Refresher to be trained on the 2018 Audit Tool Workbook. Please contact AMHSA for details if you are unsure of your certification or training requirements.

Note: 

  • AMHSA’s Audit materials are designed for use with Windows-based PCs. Features may not be compatible with other platforms.
  • Make sure you download the audit tool from the website for each new audit you perform. 
  • It is recommended that you back up your work regularly.
