Annual On Site Audit Reviews (OSAR)

June 14, 2022

On-site Audit Review (OSAR)

For many years, a part of the WorkSafeBC Certificate of Recognition program includes random reviews of recently completed audits, known as the On-site Audit Review (OSAR). Each year, 10% of external auditors are sampled. The reviews provide feedback to auditors to ensure continuous improvement of auditing skills and provide employers with identified gaps from the audit process. 

What to expect during an OSAR

If selected, an ESC team member will reach out to provide you with more information. At this time, all OSARs are conducted remotely. 

The process includes a key contact interview as well as a request for documentation.

You will receive a summary outlining any gaps identified.

The OSAR procedure is online and outlines employer requirements for participation.
