What Is a Repeat Finding?

A repeat finding can be defined as one of the following:


  • A finding     that was identified in the previous independent audit for which a     corrective action has not been completed as planned
  • A finding     that is substantially similar in nature to one that was identified in the     previous independent audit

An example of an environmental audit finding that would clearly beconsidered a repeat would be the case of a site that on an initial audit isdetermined to be operating without a required air or wastewater permit and onthe follow-up or subsequent audit still does not have the required permit. One factor that might color the repeat classification would be if the site hadapplied for a permit promptly but the issuing agency had not yetresponded.  The auditor would then have to decide whether the site’sfollow-up efforts with the agency, over a 3-year period, were earnest andsubstantial (e.g., face-to-face meetings).  If they were not, then thereis a strong implication that the corrective actions were insufficient tocorrect the deficiency, and this could legitimately be called a repeat finding.

An example of a repeat safety finding would be a case such as thefollowing: On the initial audit, a guard that protected workers from cominginto contact with a high-speed belt was observed to have been removed from amajor piece of rotating equipment. Operators claimed that the guard “got in theway.”  After the audit, the site reported in its corrective action planthat the guard had been reinstalled.  Three years later, on the nextaudit, the guard was once again found to have been removed.  Anotherrepeat finding.
