Occupational Hygiene Audits
Audits are systematic critical analyses of the quality of occupational hygiene systems and practices. The audit cycle involves a process of repeating cycles of testing which result in progressive improvement and assurance of quality:
- In order to be truly effective all occupational health programmes need to be managed systematically.
- Whatever occupational health management system is being followed the general pattern above will apply.
- The Occupational Hygiene Section can carry out a formal occupational health audit which will highlight the gaps between the practices being followed and the standards laid down or expected. Possible actions to rectify these shortcomings will be recommended.
