Are you looking for a legal compliance audit? The purpose of the compliance audit is to compare your organisation to the OHS Act 85 of 1993, rule, code or standard, and determine the degree to which your organisation complies. A compliance audit involves the verification of compliance by your organisation within the OHS Act by gathering evidence. An audit is usually conducted after implementation has been done and often results in the auditor certifying compliance or certification by someone. It looks backwards and is about verification and assurance.
We have years of experience doing various compliance audits on specific focus areas including COC’s as required by DHET, Amalusi and QCTO requirements.
