Protocols for an Internal Audit Program in the Oil & Gas Industry

Event Description and Agenda:

Anyone that works with hazardous materials knows that compliance with federal regulations can be complicated and expensive. The best way to avoid violations and potentially costly penalties is to ensure that your company has a healthy and robust regulatory compliance program that includes regular internal audits. Regularly scheduled audits will show whether the company is adhering to rules, regulations, laws, codes of practice, guidelines, and principles as they apply individually and collectively to all parts of their organization.

The "Protocols for an Internal Audit Program in the Oil & Gas Industry" web conference will educate you and your staff on the proper way to perform an internal audit. The speaker will describe best practices, what you need to look for during the audits, and how often the audits should be performed. An effective internal audit involves employees at every level of the company.  When the audits are done properly and the results benchmarked against prior results, it will help prevent developing bad habits that can lead to repeated violations.
