An ongoing function of a safety management system is auditing it to ensure things are being done as stated. In Alberta this audit is mandatory. Industrial railways in Alberta are required to conduct self-audits for at least 2 of the 3 years in their operating authority renewal cycles. Category 1 and 2 sites are required to have a 3rd party audit in their 3rd year.
To support this The CHTRS provides:
- SMS Self-Audit courses
- SMS Self-Auditing support
- 3rd party SMS Audit services
