It is vital that businesses keep records of processes that they use to meet their compliance obligations. This needs to be managed in a consistent and systematic way with clear and concise records to make recording effective as well time efficient and avoiding rewriting ‘War and Peace’. The Management Systems are presented as paper based Manuals and in electronic format.
In preparing Management Systems, we spend time in understanding the operation of your business and then determine the areas of compliance that apply to your operation. We then develop procedures that explain how you meet your compliance obligations as well as the documents you require to record compliance.
The basic format of our Management Systems is
- Forms and Registers
- Safe Work Instructions
- Reference material
- Handbooks to communicate to staff and contractors information on meeting their responsibilities
The advantage of having health and safety documentation is that health and safety can then be applied effectively and consistently across a business. It also ensures that health and safety knowledge stays in the business rather than with individual staff members who may leave.
Management Systems can be developed for just health and safety or can be integrated with environmental and or quality to form an Integrated Management System.
These Management Systems are developed to meet the requirements of:
- Australian Standard -AS 4801 – Health and Safety
- International Standards (ISO) – ISO 9000 – Quality
- International Standards (ISO) – ISO 14001 – Environment
- International Standards (ISO) – ISO 45001 – OHS
We have worked with a number of clients to gain accreditation to these Standards using our Integrated Management Systems.
