Review of OFSC audit criteria

Monday, 10 August, 2009

As part of the reaccreditation process for construction companies, the Office of the Federal Safety Commissioner (OFSC) has taken the opportunity to review the current audit criteria used for accrediting companies and reviewing companies as part of maintaining accreditation.

The focus of this review has been to develop one set of criteria to be applied in whole or part to all audits, replacing the two sets of criteria that are currently used. The review has also reduced duplication, refined the wording of criteria and made the audit requirements clearer.

This revised criteria, known as the OFSC Audit Criteria, will be used for all audits from 3 August 2009. That includes all accreditation and reaccreditation audits, as well as project safety audits, special audits and maintenance audits.

Prior to any audit, the criteria to be reviewed will be sent to companies.
