Course Description:

The main objective of the auditor training is to enable the participants to plan, conduct, complete and submit audits under the Partners in Injury Reduction (PIR) program. The audits must meet the requirements of the Partnerships audit protocol, which is used under the PIR program to determine eligibility for a Certificate of Recognition (COR).

  2. Explain the auditor certification and auditor code of ethics requirements.
  3. Summarize the PIR occupational health and safety management system audit process steps, including the activities required to plan, conduct, complete and submit a PIR system audit.
  4. Calculate interview and work site samples that meet Partnerships’ representative sampling requirements.
  5. Practice validating each element of an occupational health and safety management system against the PIR Standards through the use of
    • Documentation reviews;
    • Interviews; and
    • Observations
  6. Calculate the appropriate score for sample audit questions based on the audit findings provided.
  7. Understand and demonstrate how sample audit notes meet Partnerships’ guidelines.
  8. Understand and demonstrate how element’s existing strengths and suggestions for improvement meet Partnerships’ guidelines.
  9. Examine the CCSA quality assurance process and identify the requirements for submitting an audit that meets Partnerships’ standards.
