Becoming a Certified AHSA Health & Safety Auditor

Requirements for becoming a certified AHSA Health and Safety Auditor are dictated by Partnerships in Injury Reduction, and require successful completion of specific prerequisite health and safety program building training content, Auditor Training, and a qualification (test) audit.  Before an auditor candidate invests the time and effort needed to become certified, they should ask themselves if they are suited to the role.  Click here for a list of questions you should ask yourself before getting started.

Step 1

Those who are ready to pursue certification must complete each of the following health and safety program building courses.  Prerequisite sessions for Auditor Candidates include the following (must be completed within 12 months prior of Auditor Training).

1/2 day classroom sessions:

  • Emergency Response Planning
  • Qualifications, Orientations & Training
  • Workplace Inspections

Full day classroom sessions:

  • Hazard Identification, Risk Assessment & Control
  • Incident Reporting & Investigation
  • Other Parties at or in the Vicinity of the Worksite
Step 2

Once these sessions have been completed, you must successfully complete the HS Program Building online exam with a minimum score of 80%. Email to request the exam link.

Step 3

Successfully complete the 3-day classroom Auditor Training course and exam.  This class is held three times a year, and sessions are typically scheduled in June and September.  Be sure to register early to avoid missing out. 

Step 4

The last step in the certification process is to perform a qualification (test) audit within 4 months of Auditor Training.  Audits must be conducted independently and meet all Partnerships quality standards in order to be approved for Auditor certification purposes.
