We have recently gone to a GFSI audit scheme, and have done well for the first round. I want to be able to continually have a successful audit program, and the once a year external audit makes it hard to really measure that. Looking at doing some scored internal audits. The thought being that we know we are harder on ourselves then any external auditor. Therefore, if we score our internal quarterly inspections, we should see a continuous improvement of our audit score, which will reflect how food safety is doing as a whole. Other thoughts were to do an internal weekly inspections (maybe at a supervisor level) and score those as well.
Anyone do anything similar to this? How did you score - checklist, actual score (900/1000), pass/fail? Thoughts on how to measure or look at success of an 3rd party audit, other then just a score?
