Book Description

March 16, 2011 1605907081 978-1605907086 Ninth Edition
This new edition of Environmental Health and Safety Audits not only will help you put your company on course toward effective environmental compliance, but also now brings you up to date on changes in EPA and OSHA auditing policies, issues currently confronting auditing programs, and state-of-the-art strategies for managing and conducting audits.

In this book, author Lawrence B. Cahill, a veteran with over 25 years of industry experience, provides all the information needed to conduct audits and manage an EH&S auditing program. He discusses new developments in information generation and availability, including ISO 14000 auditing guidelines, auditing dilemmas, and auditing tips. He provides several tools for building a successful audit program, including an EH&S audit program manual, a pre-audit questionnaire, a pre-audit checklist, an EH&S audit opening conference presentation, an environmental audit report, an EH&S audit appraisal questionnaire, and a management report. In addition to updates to most chapters, several new chapters address conducting third-party evaluations, and include a number of quick, practical reference guides on all aspects of performing an EH&S audit, from preparation to reporting findings. A new appendix also models a conference closing presentation.

4.0 out of 5 stars Cahill's Environmental Auditing Textbook Review September 8, 2007
Overall, it is a very useful textbook offering a generic approach to environmental audits which can easily be expanded to health, safety and security issues. The author(s) does a very thorough job in discussing the activities and protocols involved with the 3 phases of the auditing process: 1. Pre-audit Phase; 2. On-site Audit Phase; and 3. Post-Audit Phase. The textbook utilizes the input from several different authors which results in some duplication of information, but repetition is good in this much changing field.

Needs to be updated and expanded with respect to a few more current issues: Impact of the Sarbanes-Oxley law, current ISO 14001 issues, plus some others. A more detailed chapter on Root-Cause Analysis would be beneficial with more examples. This type of analysis seems to be the most prevalent in deciding upon Corrective Actions and Recommendations needed to mitigate future deficiencies of a similar nature.

An instructor's manual containing some general or specific discussion questions for each chapter would also be helpful. The references contained within each chapter are useful. Placing current "Insights" - articles or case law relevant to the chapter material would also enable the authors to keep current with fewer new chapters in subsequent editions. More sample examples of Audit Instruments (checklists) and detailed suggestions for Corrective Action follow-up would be useful.
This textbook is currently being used at the Master's level assuming little or no pre-requisite knowledge of the auditing process. It is being taught in on-campus and on-line classes.

3.0 out of 5 stars Kindle Version Subpar June 23, 2014
By SC22
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
While the text itself was great, the kindle version is lacking. For whatever reason there are no page numbers and there is no table of contents I can use to skip to a chapter or page. I end up having to flip through pages and try to make my own book marks just to jump to a different chapter. The lack of page numbers also makes it very difficult to cite the text in my papers.
Typically I prefer to have an electronic text book, but this time around I wish I had just ordered the physical copy.
