Two situations where it is appropriate to add further hazard audits to internal a

Under what situations are further hazard audits added to internal audit programmes
Welcome to the Cove. :D

Unless there's some technical or regulatory requirement I don't know about, I'd say that further hazard audits would be in order if there were further hazards (actual or potential) to be concerned about.

Welcome to the Cove.

Seems like you had answered your own question by the title of the thread. Alternatively, let us know what the two situations are so that we can comment whether it is appropriate.

Your internal audit program isn't intended for auditing hazards and hazards audits are not part of the required internal audit process. The purpose of the internal audit is clearly stated in 4.5.5 Internal audit...

The organization shall ensure that internal audits of the OH&S management system are conducted at planned intervals to:

a) determine whether the OH&S management system:
1) conforms to planned arrangements for OH&S management, including the requirements of this OHSAS Standard; and
2) has been properly implemented and is maintained; and
3) is effective in meeting the organization’s policy and objectives;



Clause 4.3.1 clearly states when additional hazard assessment must be performed...For the management of change, the organization shall identify the
OH&S hazards and OH&S risks associated with changes in the
organization, the OH&S management system, or its activities, prior to
the introduction of such changes.


Unless there's some technical or regulatory requirement I don't know about, I'd say that further hazard audits would be in order if there were further hazards (actual or potential) to be concerned about.
Good guess, but remember 18001 isn't about technical or regulatory anything, it's about the management of risk and improved OHS performance.

but still we are to be enlightened on the 'two situations' referred to in the thread title.
If the topic in question is the transposing of a question from a test being undertaken by the OP, it all makes sense.

To be very frank, I didn't get the above point. Please elaborate.

Re: Two situations where it is appropriate to add further Hazard Audits to Internal A

The original post and thread title sounds awfully close to a question someone undertaking an OHSMS audit training would be asked to answer, during a test. It might be just one of those cases where someone going through a test asks for help here. It has happened numerous times before.

Some of us who are (or were) lead auditor course instructors recognize a test question when we see it.
