This course focuses on the basics of internal auditing providing the tools and methods necessary to meet the international regulatory needs as well as the continuous improvement of the repair station. Many regulatory authorities require a repair station to perform internal audits and require their auditors to be trained.
Presented by: Ric Peri, AEA vice president of government & industry affairs.
Developing an Internal Audit as part of the Internal Evaluation Program (IEP) helps provide written guidance to management. This safety assurance activity is designed to ensure compliance with regulations; determine conformance with company policies, standards and best practices; and to measure conformance with and the effectiveness of, safety risk controls.
As internal audits are performed; findings reveal new hazards and existing system/process/control deficiencies. Follow-up audits ensure the effectiveness of risk controls and corrective actions and results are communicated to appropriate personnel as lessons learned. This leads to continual improvement and proactively enhances safety throughout the organization.
