Individuals responsible for evaluation and on-going development of high-quality safety initiatives within organizations have become increasingly challenged with the increasing complexity of business and continual evolving demands for change. Management Systems offer the opportunity to develop a systematic approach to complex structures to greatly improve Organizations ability to identify and manage workplace risk.
Canadian and global management system standards provide benefits across a broad front and affect all stakeholders, business owners, and employees associated with the systematic identification and management of health and safety risks. Implementing a management system provides benefits and signals confidence and integrity to all parties.
However, there are a diverse variety of OHS management systems to draw upon including CSA Z1000, ILO-OSH 2001, OHSAS 18001, ANZI Z10. It's not just knowing individual management systems. Which one best fits a particular organization's needs?
