This text is designed to answer the new awareness and concern about the environment and health and safety issues, by corporations operating in the USA and internationally, since the environmental audit became a routine part of corporate business. As with any other type of audit, the process includes a careful review of all aspects of the process and the plant (past and present) that could cause health, safety or environmental problems. The text contains step-by-step guidelines, which show how to conduct an environmental audit based on the experiences of the chemical, pharmaceutical, oil and gas, automotive, electric power, forest products, waste disposal, biotechnology, aerospace, banking and other industries. Health and safety auditing and global auditing programmes are included. After covering an environmental, health and safety audit, the guide explores: EHS auditing as an assurance tool for corporate officers and directors, how an EHS audit can help identify and reduce risks, how to assess operating management systems and internal controls, and how to develop principles and standards. Finally, the reader is guided through the audit process from start to finish with descriptions of developing goals, interviewing staff, tapping outside sources, reporting findings, conducting a follow-up and taking corrective action. Also provided are both the federal approach and an industry-specific approach to EHS auditing.
