Information may include:

  • Process Descriptions
  • Flow Diagrams

  • Site Equipment Layout Drawings

Auditors visit the site for a physical audit

  • Complete record reviews
  • Make visual observations
  • Conduct interviews with site operations, production and maintenance personnel in order to evaluate compliance
  • A detailed checklist will be completed following all aspects of OSHA and EPA Compliance Standards

Average onsite audit ranges from 3-5 days depending on the number of process units being audited

  • At the end of the site visit, a review of the preliminary findings or gaps will be presented to the client’s staff personnel
  • PSS Engineers will offer insight and recommendations appropriate to advance the site’s programs based on the regulatory requirements and industry best practice
  • The auditors will then submit a written final report to the client that contains findings, observations, and suggestions concerning any deficiencies found
