Australasian Meat Industry Employees Union: Regulatory Compliance Auditing
The Isosceles Group was retained to provide Environmental Safety & Health (ESH) support to a poultry processing and meat packing facilities located in Australia and New Zealand. The project initially involved a comprehensive review of applicable global ESH standards both within Australia and New Zealand, as well as other first world countries with similar facilities. This review included a detailed evaluation of the existing written ESH Policies and Procedures for each of approximately 10 individual corporations that owned the poultry processing and meat packing facilities. The review focused on injury and illness data, and the correlation of this data with existing programs designed to mitigate identified risks. Following the initial review, over a 12-month period, Isosceles systematically evaluated each individual facility for compliance with in-country ESH regulatory requirements, conducted an analysis of the program management system developed by each facility to meet expected health and safety goals and objectives, and produced a detailed report to each facility.
