Internal Audit Best Practices for Safety, Environment, and Quality Audits

Tuesday, March 14th, 2017, 11AM-12PM ET.

Nimonik has seen a wide variety of internal Health, Safety, Environmental and Quality (HSEQ) audit programs. They seem to come in all shapes and sizes! Each company tends to focus on different risks and controls. 

Whether your organization is conformant to ISO 19011 or another internal audit standard, re-focusing your internal audit program on your risks, controls, and operational reality is a key driver for operational excellence.

Rack Safety & Compliance

Tuesday, November 15th, 2016, 11AM-12PM ET.

Pallet racks are present in virtually all workplaces, and several lives are lost annually due to racking failures. CSA A344 user guide is about to be released and that is welcomed news for users of rack that want to ensure their racks are being inspected and maintained to the latest standards.  The A344 user guide was first published in 2005 more than 10 years ago, so the latest edition will be considerably revised.  The 2016 edition will have provisions that largely cover the same requirements of the previous edition, plus those in the European and American user guides (EN15635 and Considerations For Planning And Use of Industrial Steel Storage Racks).

The webinar covers subjects such as basic structural theory, safe loading practices, guarding, inspection and repair. The primary topic is the inspection of rack, and the latest practices.

Great ISO 14001 Legal Registers, what do they look like?

Tuesday, August 9th, 2016, 11AM-12PM EDT.

Nimonik has seen hundreds of ISO 14001 Legal Registers and they seem to come in all shapes and sizes. Whether your organization is ISO 14001:2015, ISO 14001: 2004 or even if you simply “follow” the standard, building a proper Legal Register or Legal Profile for your organization can be a big help for compliance.

A great Legal Register allows you to quickly understand which laws, regulations, and standards apply to you and how. It will help you define audit scopes, conduct training and point you in the right direction when regulatory change comes your way.

This webinar walks you through the dos and don’ts of building a great register and ensuring it stays relevant for your organization over time.

The Link Between Risk Management, Critical Controls, and Auditing

Wednesday, July 6th, 2016, 2PM-3PM ET.

Nimonik partner and owner of Management Horizons, John Wolfe, speaks on the linkage between operational risk management, critical controls and governance; which should include periodic audits and assessments. Once companies have covered off baseline regulatory compliance, they must embark on a journey to reach operational excellence. Mr. Wolfe explains how leading companies utilize their risk management business process to identify their biggest risks and associated critical controls, and then utilize various assurance processes such as audits and assessments to assure the efficacy of these controls.
