DIFFERENTIATE BETWEEN AN AUDIT AND AN INSPECTION
Do you regularly conduct audits within the scope of your work? If yes, then it is possible to conduct audits AND inspections. There are significant differences between the two concepts, however they are not always distinguished within organizations.
An audit helps you to follow-up on your processes
An audit consists in verifying compliance to a regulation, a law or to an internal policy. An audit will closely monitor your internal processes and procedures in order to ensure that a certain number of standards and specifications are observed. The scope of an audit is quite broad, it can equally cover human, material and physical aspects. A health, security and environment audit can be conducted internally or by appointing an external auditor. Companies who wish to have or maintain a certified system such as the ISO 14001 or the OHSAS 18001 are encouraged to put an internal audit process in place.
Inspection: a method of control
An inspection helps to identify risks that can be corrected in order to avoid accidents. When put into practice more frequently, an inspection helps to verify, with the help of a check-list, tasks that ensure compliance with a process or an equipment. An inspection can be planned, thus responding to the need of a structured approach, or it can be unplanned, in which case it will be a surprise inspection.
