Environmental Audits and Inspections
Safeguard's Environmental Audit and Inspection Software allows you to monitor compliance throughout your organization, freeing up your time for proactive environmental management.
Improve consistency and Accuracy of Data
Safeguard’s configuration options allow you to select the environmental audit and inspection management process appropriate to your organization. With Safeguard’s powerful functionality, you can determine the style of audit or inspection, the associated question set, answering formats, workflow and scoring, helping you to standardize formats and compare results quickly and easily going forward.
Safeguard’s intuitive audit and inspection administration tools give you the ability to easily create audit and inspection templates, with full control of question sets and help text
Whether question-based or subjective auditing, Safeguard can accommodate your requirements.
Identify Nonconformance and Best Practice
Whether your auditors or inspectors identify an environmental nonconformance or an example of best practice, Safeguard’s integrated workflow can define the next stage in the process. A nonconformance identified can trigger a separate nonconformance report for further review, including automated email notifications, or can prompt the user to create a corrective action.
If required as a part of your process, Safeguard enables you to upload and attach documents including photographs or files, ensuring you have all the information to support your decisions.
Fully Integrated Action Planning
Safeguard's powerful action management provides you with complete reassurance that the decisions you make and action plans you put in to place are acted upon. Actions are stored against the record and can be assigned to colleagues, with automated email notifications ensuring complete visibility and accountability at every step in the action lifecycle.
Define Schedules Appropriate to You
Reduce the administrative burden and associated costs by simplifying and automating your environmental audit and inspection scheduling process. Create an audit and inspection schedule across your organization for daily, weekly, monthly and quarterly checks, safe in the knowledge that automated emails will notify relevant people when audits and inspections are due.
If required, one time, ad-hoc audits and inspections can also be created, helping you record vital findings from both internal and external auditors, including for example, ISO 14001.
