Suitability and effectiveness of the OH&S management system based on possible changing circumstances that may include:
All management reviews must be documented. Observations, conclusions, and recommendations for further necessary action from the review must be recorded and communicated to workers and their representatives. If any corrective action must be taken, Top management should follow up to ensure that the action was effectively implemented.
Safety performance indicators should be monitored with varying frequencies, some hourly, some daily, some weekly and some monthly. Management cannot wait for six months to respond, if they do, it will be too late. Every time management convenes to review and react to performance, it is considered as a management review. Whether they are reviewing an individual's performance, departmental programmes and projects, etc., this should be considered as valid management review.
Annual or even bi-annual management reviews are insufficient in frequency to be able react to any issues effectively. Some companies have multiple review levels, whereby, each review may require multiple subjects and rely upon multiple metrics as inputs. Sometimes subjects are reviewed at more than one level, e.g.; production numbers might be reviewed by the Production teams during daily production meetings and then by senior management, possibly weekly.
Top management might conduct weekly meetings in which they review indicators and objectives to determine if any corrective action is required. The process owner is then responsible for reporting close out progress in the meeting a week later.
The outputs of the management review include decisions related to the continuing suitability, adequacy and effectiveness of our health and safety management system in achieving its intended outcomes, and;
Management review output is documented in the minutes of the review meeting.
Upon complete review of all inputs and generation of the outputs, Top management must determine the continued suitability, adequacy and effectiveness of the health and safety management system.
