Auditing, Preparing for, Participating in or Conducting Audits


Don’t go into a panic – know how to prepare and respond to an audit. This course provides the solution to assisting managers, supervisors and employees understand, prepare for and participate in workplace audits. Due to the many contexts auditing occurs within (for example, safety, accreditation, public funding, legal compliance) an understanding of the processes undertaken can assist organisations to streamline audit activities and provide external or internal auditors with the evidence they require effectively and efficiently. Overcoming defensive views when gaps are identified during audits can be challenging. However, providing a clear understanding of how to prepare for and participate within audits and respond to non-conformance reports, can assist your organisation to seamlessly undertake necessary auditing activities.
