The Value of Third-Party Audits and What You Can Expect from Them
January 20, 2022
By: Derrick Mauk
Finding yourself in need of a third-party audit can feel daunting and confusing. Some require special administration like specific documents, risks, or follow ups on corrective actions.
Beyond meeting certain requirements, your organization can garner several benefits from a third-party audit.
- Objectively Fresh Eyes
Third-party audit companies come in with fresh eyes and a different approach. They are not part of your day-to-day, so they can offer new perspectives on your systems and processes without the familiarity your staff has built over time. It’s a neutral assessment from trained experts.
- Knowledge and Expertise
Speaking of expertise, third-party vendors have conducted audits in multiple environments in a variety of facilities. They’ve seen it all. They can share the best practices from programs across the industry. It’s truly an opportunity to learn and grow your program.
- An Expedited Timeline
When your teams are focused on their day-to-day tasks, some maintenance can fall to the back burner. Bringing in a third-party allows you to allocate specific resources to conduct an audit and interviews in a timely manner.
- Maintained Brand Image
By keeping up with and going above and beyond regulations, you show your neighbors that you care about keeping them safe.
