ARCA undertakes site and office audits to support member’s business performance and promote professional standards to clients. These audits are widely acknowledged within the licensed asbestos industry as covering all legal requirements, as well as promoting best practices.
We require members to participate in our Site Audit Accreditation Scheme (SAAS) which requires two satisfactory site audits every year.
The cost of the audits is included in the annual membership fee and the SAAS is sponsored by our Associate Member, Miles Smith Insurance Ltd.
These site audits are carried out on notified licensable work and from January 2017 the audits will be unannounced, so contractors will have no knowledge of when or where an audit will take place (excluding Ireland).
In March 2017, ARCA introduced electronic site audits following the development and trial of a unique app developed to follow the Association’s audit criteria. This now means that reports will be immediately (signal dependant) available to the manager via email.
All completed site audit reports are assessed and verified to provide; confirmation of compliance and/or identity areas for improvement to support members, and to maintain the high professional standards demanded by the Association.
Being unannounced, ARCA site audits are now an even stronger system of reassurance for all parties.
Additional Site Audits
To support a member’s business, quality or health and safety management systems, our trained auditors are available to carry out additional site audits, to the same format and high standard as the Site Audit Accreditation Scheme.
As a result of our partnership with CHAS, members are able to obtain accreditation, without full assessment, through the Association as CHAS recognises our site audit as fulfilling the majority of the criteria required to obtain accreditation. So following a successful site audit, we can provide members with an efficient and cost effective route to CHAS accreditation.
As the leading trade association we continue to drive professional excellence throughout the industry.
