One of the most fundamental aspects of any effective management system is to ensure that regular Internal Audits are conducted. Planned Internal Audits should include a regular focused assessment of the documentation as well as operational systems and processes and should create awareness of the importance of compliance and keep your system on track. A company’s Internal Auditors learn exponentially when exposed to conducting Internal Audits since they become exposed to different departments and processes and can provide a fresh perspective necessary to keep systems evolving and improving in line with innovative, modern trends.
The Entecom team thoroughly enjoys conducting Internal Audits with the Food Safety Team to teach the team what to look for and how to record the audit findings. Internal Audits are an exciting opportunity to identify areas for improvement and to share ideas with other departments. We always aim to add value and hope to find better ways of doing things; Safer Food, Smarter Business.
Often the most under utilised management tool in food safety and other quality management systems, Internal Audits, when conducted properly, will ensure that you systems perform effectively in ensuring food safety and quality objectives.
Effectively implemented, an Internal Auditing Programme can contribute towards a company meeting its Food Safety, quality and business objectives and also taking a proactive approach in mitigating any potential risks.
