ESA protocol changes.
Under COVID-19 circumstances the Alberta Partnerships in Injury Prevention (PIR) has agreed that all COR audits must be Documentation-verified only.
Because of social isolation recommendations, auditors cannot visit offices and perform Observations and Interviews.
This release updates the eCompliance AuditTool, ESC protocol, to support the ability for auditors to NA questions requiring validation through Interviews and/or Observations, leaving only Documentation verification methods.
Auditors, please note:
In order to use the new document-verified only version, you'll need to “Start a new” audit file. The new audit file will use the newest version with “N/A options for Observation and Interview questions”.
(ie. Only new audit files will reflect the change. Any old audits or in-progress audits will use the old protocol and will not see the change)
