Comparison of two Audits
User can compare two safety audits, which were carried out in CASA. This comparison helps when there are number of plants whose performance is to be compared or the same plants performance is to be compared for two years (safety audits carried out in CASA only). Apart from final rating, the rating in Option I, colour rating in Option II and questionnaires used in two audits can be compared. Two audits can also be compared with respect to questions, where there is improvement or degradation with respect to another audit. The differences in questionnaire can also be analyze
