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).  

Participants must bring a laptop to class that runs MS Excel

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 (audits must meet a minimum audit quality)
  • Attend Health & Safety Audit Refresher every three years

The course includes classroom instruction, general discussion about issues that auditors are facing, and hands-on time spent working with the new Excel audit workbook. Topics include:

  • Information on changes and updates to the Partnerships in Injury Reduction program
  • A chance to explore the new audit workbook (mandatory as of January 1, 2019)
  • An overview of quality assurance processes, expectations, and tips on how to avoid revisions
  • A review of auditing theory
  • A closer look at audit options such as action plans and additional elements

Prerequisite:

  • Must be a currently certified AMHSA auditor.

Advanced Audit Tool Training:

  • An optional, no-cost second day has been developed to allow auditors additional time to work through the updated tool with instructor assistance. Prerequisite: Health & Safety Audit Refresher.

Notes:

  • Participants must bring a laptop to class that runs an updated and current version of MS Excel
  • Auditors must attend this class before using the new audit workbook (Excel 2016 version)
  • Auditor certification expires 3 years from date of issue. In order to maintain certification, auditors must complete the following prior to their certification expiry:
    • Complete 2 audits that pass QA requirements
    • Attend AMHSA’s Health & Safety Audit Refresher course or Health and Safety Auditing course

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

CEU points: 0.5

BCRSP: The current class contains 6 technical hours and may be eligible for CM points.
