Occupational health and safety management systems

by D Gardner, C Winder
Quality assurance (San Diego, Calif.) ()


There is a need for OHS management systems that can be integrated with systems for the management of other organizational priorities including quality, environment, productivity, and the like. The present article presents an overview of the draft Australian/New Zealand Standard on Occupational Health and Safety Management Systems as a step toward the development of such integrated systems. This draft standard presents a five-stage process of OHS management. The five stages--commitment and policy, planning, implementation, measurement and evaluation, and management review and improvement--will create a cycle of activity that can lead to the continual improvement of processes and systems for OHS management in the workplace.
