Your organisation will be audited on quality, safety and security or environmental issues, without any financial obligation.

The research project 
About six students will help you during five weeks, to give an objective advise on how to improve on the subject of your choice, without any financial obligation. The audit will involve a document review as well as a set of interviews with yourself and a number of your employees.The interviews will each take about an hour. In addition to the interviews you are requested to give students access to relevant documents, such as protocols and manuals. Confidentiality is guaranteed.


The students will start in week 18 and audit your company on quality, safety & security or environmental issues. The final presentation will be in week 25. A comprehensive checklist will be used, based on ISO 9001 (OHSAS 28000 for safety, ISO 14000 for environment). The maturity model developed by Carnegie Mellon University is integrated in the approach.
