In recent years at WSP, Richard was approached by the client who operated in the services sector to design and implement a three-year HSE Assurance Audit Program. The program was complex, as it audited a range of business units including workshops, vehicle hire and roadside assistance.

  • HSE Audit tools were developed to audit 10 HSE standards.
  • Twelve pilot sites were tested in the initial phase of the project and learnings were used to make the necessary amendments.
  • An audit protocol and audit plan was developed and communicated with the client.
  • Ultimately over 200 sites were audited in Australia and New Zealand over three years.
  • Findings were documented in the audit report and each finding was risk-rated and prioritised.
  • The client provided very positive feedback on the coaching style of audit and the fact that findings were explained with auditees so that reports contained no surprises.
  • The audit tool, audit plan and audit report was transferred onto a digital platform a year later.
  • Reports containing HSE Assurance Program progress, trends and analysis were provided to the board of directors each quarter.

We have the track record to plan and implement a large-scale HSE audit program, with trend analysis, presentation and advice on strategic direction to executives.
