Loss Control Auditing: A Guide for Conducting Fire, Safety, and Security Audits is a one-stop resource for both developing and executing a loss control audit program.

This fully updated second edition addresses loss control auditing from the perspectives of workplace safety, physical security, and fire risks.

It focuses on the three core areas of an audit: documentation review, physical inspection, and employee interviews, and presents a three-phase model – pre-audit, audit, and post-audit activities – which can be used for all three core areas. This new edition benefits from the addition of auditing and system measurement material as promulgated in ISO 45001 and ANSI/ASSP Z10 standards and the Occupational Safety and Health Administration’s Recommended Practices for Safety and Health Programs.

It offers an expanded discussion of the application of auditing to the field of emergency management and new text explaining how leading and lagging measures can be used in the auditing process during assessment as well as in the post-audit evaluation.

Subsidiary organizations and their integration into the auditing process, such as the areas of contractor management and temporary worker safety are covered in detail.

The book discusses the integration of qualitative and quantitative measures in an effort to arrive at a more holistic scoring mechanism to assess organizational performance.

In all, the depth of material presented in this thorough book showcases how to develop and execute a loss control management system audit program to a high quality. An ideal read for industry professionals, students, and postgraduates in the fields of fire service, loss prevention, and safety management.
