BASE 4 Internal Auditor Training

This training is designed for large companies participating in the SAFE Companies program. In the SAFE Companies program, a large company is any company with 20 or more employees and/or dependent contractors at any one time (peak season).*

Successful completion of this training will qualify the participant to conduct a company’s year two and three “maintenance” audits for SAFE certification.

If you want to conduct the internal BASE 4 audit for your company, this training course is mandatory.

For a small company with more than one employee or dependent contractor who works on site, but with less than 20 employees during peak season, Small Employer OHS training is required.

Goals & Objectives

Student Selection
Companies may propose candidates for internal auditor training. Internal Auditor applicants require a combination of forest sector experience, basic level of health and safety experience, and a willingness to develop and apply audit skills.

The candidate must either be an employee of the company or be declared as a dependent contractor of that company. Internal Auditors are not allowed to conduct maintenance audits for more than one employer.

Three days (8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.) Coffee and lunch provided.

Activities include lectures, class discussions, case studies, group exercises, and training in the audit tools. To move on to the student audit phase, students must pass an exam.

NOTE: The BASE 4 audit tool and training course are electronic. Participants are required to bring a personal device (laptop, tablet) that runs Microsoft Word 2010 or newer, to use during the session.

Auditor Certification
Following completion of the classroom portion of the course, students will be required to conduct and submit an internal audit for review. This student audit may meet the maintenance requirements for their organization’s SAFE Companies certification in addition to completing their auditor certification. The student will be provided feedback regarding their audit submission and an auditor evaluation. Once certified as a BASE Internal Auditor, the individual is required to participate in ongoing training to maintain their auditing knowledge and understanding of the program requirements. WorkSafeBC’s COR program requires that internal auditors conduct a minimum of two audits and attend seven hours of refresher trainer every three years to maintain auditor certification.

Total cost for instruction and materials is $945.00 (includes 5% GST).
