Environmental Audits & Inspections

Developed by environmental professionals, the Audits & Inspections module in Medgate’s Environmental Software Suite is an important tool to help inspectors manage all aspects of their environmental audit and inspection programs. For clarity, here is how we define audits versus inspections:

Audits

  • Less Frequent
  • More formalized
  • Larger scale/scope
  • Often system or program based

Inspections

  • Frequent, repeating
  • Large number of inspectors/inspections per year
  • Focused/specific
  • Often equipment or area based

  • Automate follow-up workflows such as email notifications for non-conformities
  • Ensure that all actions and items resulting from an environmental audit are satisfactorily completed and closed
  • Provide inspection administrators with a central access point to view and manage their full inspection program, including completion status and history of the related findings and actions
  • Generate effective reports to review environmental audit/inspection results
