From Project Operations
Environment, Health and Safety (EHS) Compliance and Management System Audits are recognized and established practices for regulatory compliance management.
The benefits of an internal audit program are both immediate and ongoing:
- improved compliance levels,
- increased levels of awareness and under- standing of EHS rules and regulations,
- enhanced relationships with regulatory agencies and decreased levels of regulatory scrutiny fostered on a good compliance record, and
- demonstrated due diligence through the involvement of a third party professional.
The implications of non-compliance with operating approval conditions and applicable laws and regulations from various levels of government can severely affect a company’s ability to operate and damage its reputation with both the public and regulators.
