Audit & Inspections
EHS violations are a considerable business risk to any organisation and implementing a process to support governance, risk and compliance is a non-negotiable. At the same time, conducting audits and assessing risks can be not only a cumbersome but also an incredibly costly exercise for your business. The Emex Audits and Inspections module is configured to ensure you get the maximum benefit from your audit spend, enabling you to build a safer working environment, more efficiently.
As a prelude to effective auditing, the Emex Risk Assessment module helps you to understand the risks taken daily within your organisation, develop controls to help mitigate those key risks and define what that safe working environment should look like.
We help you achieve a 360˚ accurate view of your organisation’s risk environment; across multiple lines of business, disparate corporate outposts and jurisdictions along with complex reporting structures. We recognise that the business processes that facilitate good EHS compliance management are unique to each company, country and industry sector so we’ve built solutions that are wholly configurable to your particular circumstances.
We help you build audits that look beyond the mere application of procedures and policies. Audits that are more than simply check-lists but that seek to verify the adequacy of your corporate response and the corrective measures and best practise guidelines you put in place.
Key Solution Benefits
• Elimination of management and data silos:
As the audit universe expands, EHS compliance becomes a more dispersed problem, owned by everyone in the organisation. Our enterprise-wide application enables you to centralise information in one corporate register, share information organisation-wide and effectively drive risk-ownership down to the individual employee.. Silos of data are eliminated and best practise sharing of audit protocols, checklists and lessons learned is encouraged.
• Better utilisation of audit resources:
Powerful Emex workflow automation and configuration capabilities transform the processes associated with audit plans and protocols and avoids multiple data entry. Audit scheduling is dramatically improved leading to better staff utilisation and reduced costs. Individuals are proactively notified of upcoming audits and critical audit events.
• Managing thousands of EHS and compliance obligations across multiple jurisdictions
By implementing bespoke organisation-wide audit workflows, the Emex system can quickly aggregate your obligations into well-defined, effectively distributed audit plans and protocols. We automate all the key steps in the audit lifecycle from risk assessment to planning, audit and analysis to ensure best practise guidelines translate effectively into behaviours at site level.
• Helps you close the loop on your CAPA compliance obligations
Enables real-time tracking of corrective and preventative action arising as a result of auditor generated CAPAs. Audit findings can be configured to trigger corrective actions and the system will automatically manage/escalate reporting delays or overdue tasks with automated reminder emails to relevant individuals and their line managers.
