Companies seeking certification must retain a go2HR certified External Auditor to perform an external audit. Trained and certified by go2HR, these External Auditors are independent consultants selected and paid for by the companies requesting their services.
go2HR has established a maximum per diem rate of $550 that auditors may charge for auditing services. It is based on an 8-hour work day for time on-site and does not include time to meet with clients or time to complete the audit report. These activities may be billed on an hourly basis provided the time does not exceed the $550 per diem limit (e.g. $550/8-hour day = maximum $68.75 hourly charge). Auditors may negotiate other expenses, such as travel, accommodation, and food and beverage, with each client.
The following is a list of go2HR-certified External Auditors. Review the profiles, then consider requesting a proposal, including cost quotes and references, before making a decision. The Auditor Code of Ethics in our Policy and Procedures Manual prohibits a safety consultant who helps develop a company’s safety program from acting as its External Auditor.

To be eligible for re-approval of certification after the three-year period, all external auditors must:
- Perform two audits
- Complete seven hours of auditor refresher/recertification training per three-year certification cycle
- Report to go2HR using the Annual External Auditor Declaration Form
Participation in online training courses from go2HR, in-person training and events, and other education and training initiatives will count towards the seven-hour requirement.
Auditors may also apply in writing to go2HR to have relevant training and education provided by other agencies applied toward their seven-hour requirement. It is an auditor’s responsibility to complete the two audits and seven hours of relevant education and training and to report these to go2HR using the Annual External Auditor Declaration Form.
