The COVID-19 pandemic has had a huge impact on people and communities, and we are aware many organizations are facing significant disruptions and challenges that often require an urgent response and robust ongoing management.

Protecting your workforce, managing your supply chain and continuing to run your operations effectively may be some of the challenges you are facing as you deliver services for construction projects, operate facilities or decommission assets.

To help keep people safe and enable you to prepare and respond as the situation evolves, use our suite of digitally delivered services. Access to selected standards, webinars, online training and remote audits are all designed to offer flexibility and minimise disruption.

Understand and prioritize the risks to your business by upskilling your team and adopting ISO 22301 the business continuity management framework and protecting your workforce using ISO 45001, the Occupational Health and Safety Management System, to mitigate exposure to physical and psychological risks.

Introducing remote audits

BSI remote audits enable us to continue to deliver your audit program how and when you need it. The same trusted experts can engage your team members wherever they are based and enhance your audit using immersive technologies.

You can include remote audits as part of your BSI audit programs and benefit from a more consistent, flexible approach that engages teams from different locations effectively.

A remote audit is carried out in the same way as an on-site audit, but the auditor engages with you via technology. It can still cover document and record review, tours of your premises, interviews with workers and presentation of findings by using a range of technology platforms.

Whether you need to upskill your knowledge or manage your audit programme, you can use our digital services to build resilience and stay on track.

Remote audits for Building Information Modelling (BIM) and Smart Cities

We have been delivering remote audits for BIM (Building Information Modelling) to clients around the world, from Australia to the Netherlands and Malaysia, since 2016. These include BIM design and construction, BIM for asset management and BIM security. We can also offer elements of remote auditing for BIM objects.

To date, our clients have chosen to use WebEx and Skype for BIM audits which lend themselves well to remote auditing as much of the audit is screen-based. Clients have been delighted with the delivery and service.

We can also deliver remote audits for the BSI Kitemark for Smart Cities. Undertaken remotely, we work with clients around the world to validate the adoption of the Smart City standard ISO 37106.

Clients can expect a seamless service delivering flexibility whilst also validating ongoing compliance and performance.
