The Safety Assurance component of your organization’s SMS is the component that continually evaluates the effectiveness of your current risk controls and supports the identification of new hazards in your operation. Practically speaking, one of the core functions within Safety Assurance is safety auditing. Baldwin has developed Audit Manager to help you manage the process of ensuring audits are performed by the right people in the right place and at the right time.
The Audit Manager feature facilitates two primary workflows for your Internal Evaluation Program (IEP):
Audit Assignment: Audit Manager allows you to easily schedule and assign your custom audits to an auditor. As the audit progresses, you will be able to see the status of the form (draft, submitted, closed) giving you visibility into the audit’s progress from initiation to closure.
Audit Reporting: In addition, ease of assignment and progress tracking, Audit Manager will enhance your ability to view the results of your audits in a meaningful way so you can see the strengths and weaknesses within your operation. This reporting tool streamlines the proactive recognition of negative trends across multiple bases. Audit Manager will enable you to zero in on and address areas of concern at a specific bases or within specific safety processes that may be eroding prior to incidents and accidents occurring.
