NEBOSH HAS launched its latest book, the Quick Reference Guide to Auditing for Health and Safety. It is the third in a series of pocket guides and builds on the information previously published in the Quick Reference Guides to Risk Assessment and Risk Profiling.
This new guide is designed to serve as a valuable resource for individuals engaged with auditing to determine whether appropriate health and safety management systems are in place and that suitable risk control systems and workplace precautions are being implemented.
The guide covers what auditing is and the different types of audits, information on performance evaluation and how auditing can contribute to continual improvement. It focuses on the six key stages of the audit process, including some useful tips and examples to help the reader participate in a successful audit.
As well as those who conduct health and safety audits, this Quick Reference Guide is also a useful tool for anyone who has responsibility for managing health and safety.
Jane Ashby, NEBOSH head (content development) said, “Health and safety audits play a crucial role in the effective management of health and safety in the workplace. This NEBOSH guide will support readers through the process and help them to effectively plan and carry out an audit. Our pocket-sized guides are a great reference resource to support individuals who need a quick refresh of a topic and are looking for something in a simple format that can be quickly skimmed through when needed.”
The NEBOSH Quick Reference Guide to Auditing for Health and Safety is available in print (£10) and eBook (£8) from the NEBOSH online shop: https://shop.nebosh.org.uk/collections/reference-guides
