The Auditing procedure sets out the processes for planning and conducting health and safety and injury management audits at the University.
There are 3 types of WHS audits.
1. Internal Audit
An internal audit is a systematic, and wherever possible, independent examination, carried out by a competent person, appointed by the University, to determine whether
- an activity or activities and related results conform to planned arrangements;
- these arrangements are implemented effectively; and
- whether they are suitable to achieve the University's policy and objectives.
The results of the internal audits must be documented and staff consulted about them. Preventative/corrective action plans must be subsequently developed and implemented.
2. Legislative Compliance Audit
A legislative compliance audit is a systematic and documented verification process to obtain and evaluate evidence to determine that the University's WHS policies, procedures and practices comply with legislative requirements.
3. ReturntoWorkSA Evaluation
A ReturntoWorkSA evaluation is a review undertaken by ReturntoWorkSA to evaluate the University's overall compliance with the requirements of the ReturntoWorkSA Performance standards for self-insured employers or in relation to a particular matter of compliance.
