Support for the audit process is provided in three ways.

  • MESHsystems Audit Module
  • Consulting
  • Training

MESHsystems Audit Module

The Audit module is designed for audit planning, scheduling, conducting and following up.  This streamlined process adds efficiency and saves time, expecially during the reporting and followup phase.   The Audit module works seamlessly with the MESHsystems Action module so individuals can manage audit actions with automatic updating within both the Actions and Audit module.


After 30 years for conducting hundreds of safety, process safety and environmental audits, the process has been greatly refined.  This process typically begins with a Pre-audit document that helps the site to prepare for the audit and organize their materials.  Conducting the audit can be with the MESHsystems Audit module or the client's audit system.  Generally, the audit is conducted with a hard copy Audit Notebook to minimize the impact of a laptop or computer that impeeds the discussion.  The draft report is provided to the site for verification of facts before the final issue.
