This new edition of Environmental Health and Safety Audits not only will help you put your company on course toward effective environmental compliance, but also now brings you up to date on changes in EPA and OSHA auditing policies, issues currently confronting auditing programs, and state-of-the-art strategies for managing and conducting audits. In this book, author Lawrence B. Cahill, a veteran with over 25 years of industry experience, provides all the information needed to conduct audits and manage an EH&S auditing program. He discusses new developments in information generation and availability, including ISO 14000 auditing guidelines, auditing dilemmas, and auditing tips. He provides several tools for building a successful audit program, including an EH&S audit program manual, a pre-audit questionnaire, a pre-audit checklist, an EH&S audit opening conference presentation, an environmental audit report, an EH&S audit appraisal questionnaire, and a management report. In addition to updates to most chapters, several new chapters address conducting third-party evaluations, and include a number of quick, practical reference guides on all aspects of performing an EH&S audit, from preparation to reporting findings. A new appendix also models a conference closing presentation.
