We've had a state certified safety committee for over 10 years and received a notice that we are going to be audited. Justed wanted to know if anyone else in PA has had an audit and what I should expect.
Had the audit today and it went well. To close the loop on this post the details. The auditor is pretty much tied to a script. He goes back 3 years on meeting minutes and the required annual training. Use to be you were either in compliance or not. Meaning if you missed one meeting in 3 years, you weren't in compliance with the program and had to reapply. Now they have a third option which is "mostly in compliance". Due to one paperwork item we expect to be in that group but we won't receive the final report for another 3 or 4 months. Yes, that's right. We were told by the auditor that it will take 3 or 4 months until we hear back from them. Time to get back to the real business of safety.
