10 Improvement [ISO 45001]

What is Improvement for ISO 45001?

Your organization should actively seek out and realize improvement opportunities that will better enable it to achieve the intended outcomes of its OH&S management system.

10.1 General

Potential sources of improvement opportunities include the results of analysis and evaluation of health and safety performance, compliance, internal audits and management reviews.

Workplace inspection for improvement

Improvement often does not take place on a ‘continual’ basis. Sometimes improvement can be affected reactively through corrective actions, incrementally overtime, by a step change or breakthrough, creatively through innovation or by re-organization and transformation.

Look out for objective evidence that improvement is taking place. However, while improvement does not need to be continuous, it does need to be evidenced as occurring.
