CASH Certification

In order for an organization to receive a CASH certificate from AMC, there are three requirements.

  1. Develop and implement a safety management system derived from the CASH Standard.
  2. Complete an application to have the system evaluated.
  3. Pass an external audit performed by an AMC recognized auditor.


The audit is a thorough evaluation of the safety and health management system. It is completed to verify that the system is functioning as intended. Verification is achieved by reviewing the documentation that the Safety and Health Management System generates, and comparing it observations made on the facility floor and interview responses from randomly chosen employees. An audit tool has been developed by AMC that is based on the CASH Standard that incorporates the documentation, observation and interview techniques.

Audit Tools (available by request.

The Audit Tool lists instructions on conducting the audit of compliance with the Cash Program Standard. Read the Audit Information Sheet first and then follow the steps in each section to conduct the audit.

MS Excel Audit Tool With Formulas - Excel workbook containing formulas in the audit tool forms. This audit tool allows for electronic entry so the tool can be used to compute the results.
