How AuditSoft Is Making COR Audits Quicker and Easier

AASP logo

Alberta Association for Safety Partnerships (AASP) is a government- approved health and safety association and a certifying partner of choice. It is the second-largest association of its kind in Alberta.

Founded in 1996, AASP has grown to serve almost 3,000 members – thanks to its commitment to delivering excellent customer service.

As part of its commitment to serving members the best it can, AASP partnered with AuditSoft in March of 2020 to reduce the amount of time it takes to complete Certificate of Recognition (COR) audits.

Challenge

Anyone who has done a traditional COR audit will understand how labour intensive and time-consuming the process can be. Typical COR audits can take up to 45 days to perform, and up to 21 days to write the report. Once submitted, the audit will be reviewed, and ultimately returned with a number of recommendations for improvements, which auditors will then need to implement.

A growing number of corporations in Alberta, and now in fact across Canada, expect contractors bidding on projects to hold a valid COR.

Even when COR isn’t listed as a pre- qualification bidding requirement, businesses that possess COR are still often viewed more favourably.

Companies that have taken the necessary steps to create a safe and healthy workplace will continue to miss out on contracts until they receive a COR. As such, time is of the essence, and can have a direct impact on a company’s bottom line.

Solution

The AuditSoft platform has been designed to reduce the time and effort required to complete COR audits in a single application and seamless workflow.

Automated scoring

AuditSoft automatically calculates scores – saving AASP members time and ensuring the final report sent to AASP is accurate.

Standardization

AuditSoft generates professional PDF reports in one-click – saving external and internal auditors time and ensuring the final report is well formatted for AASP to review.

Tracking

AuditSoft tracks audit progress and flags any missed sections – ensuring the final report sent to AASP is complete.

Electronically delivered

Users can easily send the final report electronically – AASP no longer has to sift through 100+ pages of paperwork.

Results

AuditSoft has streamlined the COR auditing process and made it quicker and easier for associations that have partnered with them to review audits.

The platform is also helping auditors save copious amounts of time and effort, while improving the accuracy and overall quality of their audits.

The AASP is seeing increased adoption of COR via AuditSoft and believe the positive attributes are helping to attract new members and grow its association.

Testimonial

“We love AuditSoft and so do our internal and external auditors and members – it’s a win- win. The fact that once the auditor has reviewed and inputted all the data, all they need to do is click a button to generate what can be up to a 100+ page report – that’s well laid out, easy to read, and scored properly – it’s making things so much easier for auditors, members, and the AASP.

“AuditSoft is a leader in the OHS auditing software space and is helping us deliver excellent customer service and results.”
