Course Overview

Risk auditing is an essential process for ensuring the effectiveness of quality management systems in the oil & gas industry. Quality management systems help organisations to maintain a consistent level of quality in their products and services while minimising risk. Oil & gas companies face a range of risks associated with their operations, including safety hazards, environmental risks, and financial risks. Risk auditing involves identifying, assessing, and managing these risks to ensure that they are effectively controlled.

In the context of oil & gas quality management systems, risk auditing involves evaluating the processes and procedures that are in place to manage quality and safety risks. This includes reviewing documentation, interviewing employees, and conducting on-site inspections to identify potential risks and gaps in the system. The primary objective of risk auditing is to ensure that the company’s quality management system is working effectively and that it can identify and managing risks before they result in negative consequences. By identifying potential issues before they occur, oil and gas companies can improve their overall safety and environmental performance, reduce costs associated with accidents and incidents, and ensure compliance with relevant regulations and standards.
