Internal auditing

Internal auditing is one of the most powerful tools at the disposal of management because it provides an independent check that processes are working as they are designed to and challenges the status quo. Despite this, internal auditing programmes are often neglected and poorly resourced.

The HSQE Department can manage your internal auditing programme for you, benchmarking your organisation against others in your field and releasing your people to focus on their day job.


Internal auditing

Keeping your internal auditing programme on track can be one of the most difficult and time consuming aspects of running any certified management system.

Your in-house auditors may understandably see their audits as secondary to their “day job” & so they may not plan well or keep to your audit schedule. This can lead to missed opportunities for cost savings or efficiency improvements; the need for management to spend time chasing late audits; and non-conformances from your certification body.

Independent third party internal auditing can overcome these problems and lead to multiple benefits for your organisation.

We can offer experienced and friendly auditors who will plan your annual internal audit schedule, deliver your audits effectively & on time and provide you with a summary report to feed into your Management Review. Our internal auditing team has experience across organisations with a wide range of purpose and size and can help you to:

  • Comply with internal auditing requirements simply & easily
  • Stream-line & simplify your management systems
  • Carry out a gap analyses when a standard is updated and advise on transition to the new standard
  • Free staff time to tackle other business priorities
  • Bring a new perspective on business efficiency and the potential for cost savings
  • Prepare for Management Review with an annual summary of findings & recommendations

Our internal auditing programmes conform to the latest edition of ISO 19011.

    The HSQE Department has worked closely with HOST to support the organisation’s certification to ISO 9001, ISO 14001 and OHSAS 18001 standards. These are all important aspects of HOST’s operation as the principal accommodation supplier to the Hinkley Point C nuclear new build development in Somerset, which will require a workforce of some 5,000 people at peak. The HSQE Department guided the organisation through all the process and procedures in order to gain full accreditation. Kevin McCarthy, Chairman of HOST said: “The HSQE Department’s positive, good humoured and thorough approach was really appreciated by the whole team and ensured the successful implementation of the project. HOST would not hesitate to recommend The HSQE Department for any similar project.”
