A General Safety Audit Program is described in which compliance frequency rate (CFR) is used as the common denominator for the plant. CFR is number of violations times 100 divided by the work force in area at time of audit. This doesn't entail counting heads as you audit, but using the force assigned to the area. Unless support groups report to the supervisor of the area being audited, they should be audited separately with their supervision. Responsibility, or accountability, is the first step in setting up an audit area. The basic criteria should be to establish a work area that can be audited in a maximum of two hours. The audit area can be established either by people lines as with service groups (maintenance, contract personnel, etc. ) or by physical facilities (boiler house, shops, etc). The discussion is presented under headings types of audits; reasons for audits; getting commitments; and patterns.
