Audits - A False Sense of Security

Safety auditing

"Far too often audits tend to convey good news, especially audits that are designed to give some overall view of the operation, by ranking it on a scale of say, 1-5 or 1-10. Big companies tend to do many things well, so it is not surprising that they will score well on such scales.

But it is what they are not doing well that senior managers need to hear about. Inquiries after major accidents often find that the audits prior to the accident missed obvious problems and lulled senior managers into a false sense of security by conveying a message that all was well, when in fact, not all was well." Professor Andrew Hopkins.
