Audit Refresher

In late 2016, Partnerships in Injury Reduction released a new set of standards and procedures for Certifying Partners and the Partnerships in Injury Reduction program. AMHSA has redeveloped our materials and course offerings to meet the new standards. For more details, visit our Auditor Update page or contact Shannon Thomas (shannon@amhsa.net).  

Auditors are certified through AMHSA to conduct health and safety management system audits within the municipal sector. In order to maintain the high standard of auditing that AMHSA expects, auditors must perform at least two audits every three years, and they must meet a minimum audit quality. In addition, auditors are required to attend this one-day refresher course every three years.

In 2016, several Partnerships standards were revised that effected AMHSA’s audit tool and Audit Refresher training. This revised one-day course provides

  • information on changes to the Partnerships in Injury Reduction program
  • a chance to explore the new audit tool which will be mandatory as of January 1, 2019
  • an overview of quality assurance process and expectations (and tips on how to avoid revisions!)
  • a review of auditing theory – the basics
  • a closer look at  options – beyond the basics

Auditors must attend this class before using the new audit tool. The course includes classroom instruction, general discussion about issues that auditors are facing, and hands-on time spent working with the new Excel audit tool. 

Participants must bring a laptop to class that runs MS Excel.

An optional second day (free of charge) has been developed, entitled Advanced Audit Tool training. The Audit Refresher course is the required prerequisite.

Prerequisite:  Must be a currently certified AMHSA auditor.

Notes:

  • Auditor certification expires 3 years from date of issue
  • In order to maintain certification, auditors must complete the following prior to their certification expiry date:
    • complete 2 audits (departmental, baseline, or certification/external) that pass QA review
    • attend the 1-day Audit Refresher course (minimum 80% passing grade) or 2-day Health and Safety Auditing course (minimum 80% passing grade)

Duration: 1 day (+ optional Advanced Audit Tool Training)

MINIMUM FEE to run a class with less than 10 participants: $600 (members) / $900 (non-members) + GST
