It is expressed as the organizational structure, policies, procedures, processes, and resources needed to implement OHSAS management. It can be achieved only if a company has a systematic thinking, transparency, proper documentation and diagnostic discipline that sustainability focus implies. An effective Occupational Health and Safety management System includes, but not limited to, order processing, production planning, measurement of service, calibration, internal audits, corrective action, preventive action, purchasing, and other related processes like supplier selection and monitoring. ISO requires that the performance of these processes be measured, analyzed and continually improved, and the results of this form an input into the management review process.
