New technical specification for auditors of ISO 45001

ISO 45001Occupational health and safety management systems – Requirements with guidance for use, made standardization history when it was published in March this year.

Now, a new complementary technical specification – ISO/IEC TS 17021-10 – has just been published, defining the required skills and knowledge of those bodies auditing organizations that have implemented the health and safety standard.

ISO/IEC TS 17021-10, Conformity assessment – Requirements for bodies providing audit and certification of management systems – Part 10: Competence requirements for auditing and certification of occupational health and safety management systems, is intended to guarantee a harmonized approach to the accreditation of an ISO 45001 certification.

The new technical specification is aimed at auditors, or anyone making certification decisions related to ISO 45001, and will ultimately serve certification, accreditation and regulatory bodies by confirming that auditing and certification decisions related to ISO 45001 have been carried out by those who have the competence to do so.

Supply chain: Theft in distribution centers is a growing threat

Theft in distribution is a growing threat in the US, security expert Barry Brandman of Danbee Investigations said during a very interesting presentation last week at the annual Warehouse Education and Research Council (WERC) conference in Ft. Worth.

One recent change fueling the increase: the internet, which now provides a global marketplace where pilfered goods can be sold virtually anonymously, especially on auction sites, Brandman says, whereas in the past stolen merchandise mostly had to be sold locally.

That also means once goods make it outside the DC, the chances of recovering it – or even tracking the source – are very low, Brandman said. There are a number of different theft scenarios, Brandman said, including individual employees stealing goods on their own, the very common scenario of employees working inside a DC colluding with drivers to steal, and drivers stealing from customers during deliveries.

Brandman cited a recent survey that found 40% of delivery drivers said they had been propositioned about joining in some kind of theft activity – a high number from which certainly some said Yes.

Relative to collusion, Brandman cited a recent example in which a second shift supervisor conspired with order pickers to select extra cases that were then loaded on a truck, with a driver also part of the scheme. Text messages were sent by the DC employees relative to what extra cases were on the vehicle.

warehouse-theft

He offered other interesting examples. In one case, a driver was caught on film in a major city exchanging the stolen goods from the truck on to another vehicle right in the open, even as police drove right by. Brandman said this exchange was performed on the driver’s route, just a few blocks from his last delivery, so that nothing would look amiss from GPS tracking and so-called geo-fencing systems.

Another driver sold some $200,000 of merchandise over a period of time, at a heavy discount to their retail value, so that the value of the goods was probably around $800,000, Brandman said. That is pretty big time.

What can companies do?

There are no easy answered, Brandman said. A detailed security audit is a good place to start, and these need to involve more than the simple checklists that are often used. The audits should include a true analysis of processes, Brandman said.

RELATED: Become a certified ISO 28000 SCMS Lead Auditor

Companies should also employ unannounced audits, Brandman said, and the results should be included in the performance reviews of DC managers.

Brandman said it is critical to have some kind of hotline where employees can privately and anonymously report illegal activity. That anonymity is key to getting many employees to call about the theft. There are third-party service companies that can maintain such hot lines for a company, Brandman said, and having the service managed by an outside company might be viewed as less risky to employees, increasing the number of tips.

Quebec has a new anti-corruption hammer and it’s called ISO 37001

Québec isn’t the only place fighting corrupt and collusive practices in government and private contracting, but it is about to become one of the first places in the world where companies and public bodies will be able to go to school to learn a new international standard for fighting corruption.

Enter two former top directors of the Sûreté du Québec, Jean Bourdeau and Serge Barbeau, who this spring will begin teaching a five-day course at École de technologie supérieure in Montreal that was developed for organizations that want to certify for a new anti-bribery ISO standard launched globally last fall.

The International Organization for Standardization, or ISO, developed the new ISO 37001 with the help of an international panel over two-and-a-half years to address the fact that corruption and bribery are global problems.

“I think it’s the certification that will become the most popular because it addresses corruption,” said Bourdeau, who served as deputy general director of criminal investigations for the SQ from 1997 to 2001 and now runs a private investigation firm with Barbeau, a former general director of the SQ.

montreal-que-march-24-2017-jean-bourdeau-former-dep
Jean Bourdeau, former deputy general director of criminal investigations for the Sûreté du Québec, in Montreal, on Friday, March 24, 2017. Bordeau now has a private investigation firm and will be teaching a course at ÉTS starting in the spring. It’s a new anti-bribery certification for companies called ISO 37001. It only launched internationally in fall 2016 and is about to be offered in Quebec. Bourdeau says it’s cheaper and as effective as a municipality creating an inspector-general’s office to fight corruption

Those who are unfamiliar with ISO will have seen banners with the words “ISO 9001 Certified” outside some office buildings around Quebec. That’s one other type of certification, and it refers to a management system that was developed by the international standards-setting body to focus on customer service and satisfaction.
The new ISO 37001 specifies a series of internal processes and policies to help organizations prevent, detect and address bribery, including adopting whistleblower protection, developing ethics policies, appointing an internal compliance officer, providing training for employees to combat bribery, conducting risk assessments, setting up internal financial controls and developing procedures to report and investigate deviations.

RELATED: Now offering ISO 37001 Anti-Bribery training and certification

“It doesn’t guarantee individual integrity,” Bourdeau said, “but it guarantees that the organization is taking measures to have overall integrity.”

An ISO-certified company is required to have continual internal and external monitoring and to provide documentation to demonstrate that it continues to comply with the international standards.

The organization must designate an internal auditor, who will have to be certified by an outside ISO-certified auditing firm, and the organization has to be audited regularly by an external auditor, who also has to be ISO-certified.

There’s a lot of paperwork involved in an ISO certification, said Eric Lessard, general manager for Quebec-based PECB North America Inc., an international standards certification firm that developed the five-day course that Bourdeau and Barbeau will instruct at ÉTS.

“It’s not just about signing a code of ethics,” Lessard said. “It’s about having processes in place that are audited and documented. This is a controlled environment. This is not just simple basic policies and a whistleblower line.”

PECB has partnered with ÉTS Formation, the professional continuing education section of the École de technologie supérieure, to offer the course in French, which costs $2,795. The first session begins in May and a second course is already scheduled for September.

The English version of this training and certification is offered exclusively by ContinuityLink. Next session in Montreal is on 05-09 June. You want to become a certified ISO 37001 Lead Implementer? Book your seat today!

Taking auditing to new level with International Standard under revision

ISO’s popular standard for auditing management systems is under revision and has just reached the first voting stage, a crucial step in its development.

Organizations are increasingly turning to management systems, in a quest to be more effective and save time and money. Many companies have several different management systems, each focusing on different areas, such as IT, information security, quality and environmental management. ISO 19011, Guidelines for auditing management systems, will help with the effective audit of those management systems to ensure continuous improvement, allowing harmonization across systems and a uniform approach of the auditing process where there are multiple systems in place.

The standard is currently being revised to reflect the growing number of management system standards (MSS) and the recent revisions of some of the most widely used, such as ISO 9001 for quality and ISO 14001 for the environment. It has just reached Committee Draft (CD) stage, meaning those countries involved in its revision have an opportunity to make comments on the draft.

Denise Robitaille, Chair of ISO/PC 302, the ISO project committee responsible for the revision, said that when the standard was last published in 2011, there were 11 management system standards, but that number has since grown significantly to 39, with 12 others in development.

“As organizations see the benefit and need for management systems, there has been an increase in the number of sector-specific standards to respond to the mandate.
