In this paper, the authors consider environmental audit as a tool for managing the safety of an industrial enterprise. The objects of the study are the industrial enterprises of the Nizhny Novgorod region. The subjects of the study are: the concept, the legal framework, the stages of evolution, the structure and methods of environmental audit. In particular, the authors consider a specific example of the use of internal environmental audit methods to assess the socio-economic efficiency of the innovative project to reduce industrial injuries in industrial enterprises. As tools and methods of analysis, the authors propose to use the author’s approach to the calculation and assessment of the cost of damage from occupational injuries, based on the Danish method of assessing the effectiveness of innovative projects with a pronounced environmental component in the field of prevention of occupational injuries, taking into account the damage arising from the “loss of well-being”. One of the significant proposals of the authors to conduct this study are reasoned proposals to finalize the existing and accepted in the Russian Federation methodology for assessing the economic losses of the organization from industrial injuries and occupational diseases.
