June 2020 - FORS reintroduces on-site Bronze audits,  There are potential health and safety risks to you, your colleagues and your business with having an on-site audit, and you should consider the risks involved.

FORS has the option of remote audits which are a safer process for all concerned.  

FORS has issued a number of press releases about reintroducing on-site audits, and mentions "Government guidance" and "stringent safery measures in place".  Please see the FORS site for the various announcements.  

from www.gov.uk 05.07.2020 the current Covid advice is:

Stay alert
We can all help control the virus if we all stay alert. This means you must:
  • stay at home as much as possible
  • work from home if you can
  • limit contact with other people
  • keep your distance if you go out (2 metres apart where possible)
  • wash your hands regularly
Do not leave home if you or anyone in your household has symptoms.
UK Government advice remains - if you can work from home, you should.   In keeping with Goverment guidance, FORS auditors can conduct Bronze audits remotely.  

FORS states it has "stringent Corona virus safety measures in place to protect members and auditors".  You should review and assess these measures.  

For a detailed illustration of the avoidable health risks involved with an on-site audit, please message or call me, I'll send you a copy.  

Other audit concerns:
FORS makes a number of conditions that you SHALL comply with before and during the audit.  It's worth reading these as if you fail to satisfy them it can cost you in terms of wasted time and lost fees. 

The Auditor has the option to cancel your audit - the full audit fee still applys. 
If the auditor deems that any of the conditions laid down by FORS have not been met or adhered to, they may cancel the audit, you still have to pay the full fee.  FORS does not mention a similar cancellation right to the Host, with appropriate financial redress, if the auditor breaches or fails to comply with safe working practices and the Host deems it necessary to cancel or stop the audit. 

Only ONE person can attend the audit with the auditor - the Host
FORS states that only the FORS auditor and one representative (the Host) from the organisation shall attend the meeting.  Independent advisors assist at your audit to ensure that the audit follows the audit process, keeps to the audit script and that no extras are asked for.  If you'd like to know how I can assist with an on-site audit or a remote audit, please contact me.   

Independent Hosting of your on-site audit - the benefits to you and your company.      
1.  Reduced risk to your company and staff, as no direct exposure to the auditor by you.
2.  Your documents, files and property protected from the risk of contamination.  The auditor touches nothing.
In the meantime, our focus should now be on keeping all our staff as safe as possible throughout the Corona virus - Covid 19 threat.

Public Health England
have issued advice on reducing risk if staff share a cab or a vehicle.
