ARCA sees increase in additional site audit bookings

ARCA saw an increase in requests for additional site audits from member contractors during the first half of this year.

ARCA’s in-house auditors have supported members by undertaking 80 additional site audits in this period, that is in addition to the ARCA unannounced membership audits.

These additional external audits support contractors auditing programmes and provide a further quality control mechanism to help keep standards high. All ARCA audits follow the same criteria so providing a consistent form of measurement, and follow the ‘Plan, Do, Check’ approach to health and safety management.

Members can request ARCA to organise additional audits by arrangement, whereby the member can ask for a specific site to be audited, or unannounced, whereby the contractor has no prior notice of an audit.

Further information on additional site audits is available online.
