5. This may vary from 2 to 7 working days for facilities under each group. it would be essential to study all relevant documents as below to get complete picture : . a Check List is a means of pooling the knowledge and hard won experience and ensures that no important aspect is overlooked or forgotten. person(s) concerned should have necessary experience and background to undertake in-depth audit in a particular discipline. Maintenance / Inspection. the team members could also be drawn from the Head Office / Corporate Office and other operating Units under its control.2 FORMATION OF MULTI-DISCIPLINARY AUDIT TEAMS: The Internal Audits should be carried out through multidisciplinary audits teams. observations should be recorded in separate sheet.7 SITE INSPECTIONS: Most of the information could be gathered through site inspection using ready-made check lists.Operating Manuals . / Inspection Manuals . the duration of internal safety Audit can be fixed.Maint. 5. Process / Production. One of the team members should be nominated as the leader of the audit team. 5. detailed model Checklist covering important areas are given. A team of 4 to 5 experienced officers from various disciplines viz. It is suggested that oil industry members should adopt these model check lists for carrying out Internal Safety Audits. Wherever necessary. The auditors should enter their observations under the remarks column and not simply state "yes" / "no". Like a code of practice. In multi-unit organizations.Layouts . The composition of the Internal Safety Audit may vary depending on the Group and areas to be audited. Even for a skilled and well qualified engineer a good check list would be necessary as a guide. 5.5 PREPARATION BEFORE SITE VISITS FOR INTERNAL SAFETY AUDITS: Before the safety Audit team visits any particular facility for carrying out Safety Audit. Fire & Safety and with the activity involvement of concerned Plant / Area Manager is suggested.3 DURATION OF AUDIT Depending on the nature of audit and type / complexity of the installations in the selected group. In Section-II of this document.5. etc. Electrical. Inspection should be carried out accompanied by Installation / Plant Manager or the assigned officials.6 BRIEFING: Before beginning of each audit.Fire and Safety Manuals.4 USE OF SAFETY AUDIT CHECK LISTS Check lists are the most useful tool for undertaking systematic Safety Audit. No impression should be left that audit will throw bad light on them. All the audit team members should study these documents in advance to know the details of the installation. Depending upon the nature of audit more emphasis can be given to study specific documents. all concerned persons of the area/installation be briefed by the team leader about the purpose of the audit.P & IDs . Such check lists help maintaining uniformity and speeding up the audits. Instrumentation. 10 . 5. however.

0 FOLLOW UP OF AUDIT REPORTS Generally. Log Books. Log sheets. A senior person should be nominated for coordinating implementation of all accepted recommendation under a time bound program. 5. Maintenance. other documents. Electrical. Standing Orders.9 STUDY OF DOCUMENTS: In addition to the documents which are already studied before inspection of the facilities.0 PREPARATION OF AUDIT REPORTS The work of the Internal Safety Audit item should be presented in the form of a Safety Audit Report for each group which should contain observations & recommendations and also in brief the modalities adopted in conducting audit and the names of the audit team members. This approach is always constructive and does not undermine the technical competence of the audit team.0 IMPLEMENTATION OF RECOMMENDATIONS The final and most important phase is the implementation of recommendations. 7. Senior management should review the progress of implementation of recommendations periodically through Management Safety Committee meetings and other review meetings. Before finalizing the report. with site personnel and Installation / Plant Manager. it would be necessary to undertake a detailed study of the specific area and to identify the rectification measures. 6. but not the solution. Accident Records. 11 . The crux of the safety audits lie in removing the weakness identified during the audit. Only the appointing authority should exercise judgement in rejecting any of the recommendations. Wherever the necessary in-house expertise is not available for detailed studies. the Safety Audit Team can give a presentation as feedback to the Operating / Management personnel of the Area / Installation.. Sometimes audit reports identify only the problem / weakness.5.8 DISCUSSIONS: Further information can also be gathered through discussions (formal & informal). Instrumentation. the Internal Safety Audit Reports are submitted to the concerned authority who appoints the audit team for undertaking needful follow up actions. such as Operating Instructions. may also be studied as required. In such cases. Formal discussions could be in the form of brief periodical sessions while informal discussions could be over a cup of tea with personnel working in the area. 8. The appointing authority shall be of senior management level ( General Manager and above ). The audit team should interact with persons from various disciplines such as Production. who is in-charge of the area or other site officers. etc. help of consultants / professional bodies should be sought for. Additions or deletions could be made in the draft report based on the discussions and comments received during the presentation. Minutes of Safety Committee Meetings etc.
