Environmental Audit Checklist

Developing a checklist of things to look for during an Environmental auditing helps auditors through the entire process and reminds them of all topics or points in the scope of the audit.

But, we need to remember that checklists are by no means all-inclusive. Environmental auditors should use their own judgement, sampling method and peripheral knowledge to verify the Environmental compliance.

Benefits of Environmental Audit

There are several benefits to an Environmental audit if it is properly conducted and acted upon. An audit

  • Checks whether the significant environmental aspects are identified in a systematic way and adequate control measures are taken
  • Status of compliance in terms of legal, statutory and regulatory requirements
  • Improve opportunities in the workplace safety to reduce facility and personal liabilities
  • serve as a learning tool
  • increase awareness and understanding of environmental protection
  • be an opportunity to demonstrate the facility’s commitment to compliance
  • potentially identify ways to improve the efficiency and cost-effectiveness of the compliance program
