2 Business benefits of SHE auditing





17 What is an audit? Final stages in the heath and safety management control cycle: Audit and performance review The structured process of collecting independent information on the efficiency, effectiveness and reliability of the total health and safety management system (including establishing corrective action plans) Health and Safety Executive

18 Business benefits of auditing
Identification of areas for improvement / strengths / trends within the safety management system Enables informed targeting of resources Provides factual information for the continual improvement of risk control and reduction of loss (potential or actual) within the organisation Provides validation (accreditation if external) of effectiveness of SMS arrangements Pro active method of demonstrating self regulation Monitors legislative (and sector standard) compliance Improves management understanding of safety management systems Enhance workplace environment and employee wellbeing Maintenance of a positive corporate image Influence supply chain standards.

19 Internal and external auditing
Objective and independent verification Certification / accreditation Source of best practice benchmarking Continual improvement Validation of progress and organisational practice Mitigating factor (civil / statute) Enhanced reputational confidence. Operational knowledge Focus on key areas of risk Input factor into future planning Monitors legislative compliance Participative factor Mitigating factor (civil / statute).

20 Benefits of Health and Safety Auditing
Corporate Manslaughter and Corporate Homicide Act 2007 (and other Health and Safety Regulations) Areas for dispute (so essential to have demonstrable evidence) Grossness of breach will be determined by (among other factors) Compliance with law / standards / guidance (best practice) Safety Management System (effectiveness, suitability, etc) Organisational safety culture Role of Senior Management (leadership and commitment)

21 Auditing the Supply Chain
Donna Hutchinson QUENSH Ltd

22 3 ISO 45001: Beyond OHSAS A new international standard for OH&S management systems

23 ISO 45001 Natural progression from BS OHSAS 18001:2007
Lobbying from various sources for an international SMS standard Need to harmonise various OH&S standards (allowing for local regulatory requirements) and share good practice ILO key player in the development of ISO 45001 Standardised global approach to benchmarking / improving health and safety Provide a framework for local regulatory compliance ISO PC283 (development committee) established October 2013 50 countries represented by 83 delegates BSC represented on HS/1 committee review group Closely aligned to ISO 9001 and ISO 14001

24 ISO 45001 A new international standard for OH&S management systems
Standard will be reflective of Annex SL (management system standard for ISO standards) “New” concepts will be included as individual clauses; context of organisation, leadership, information management Preventive action clause within OHSAS will be dropped as considered integral to risk management requirements within ISO 45001 Committee draft (CD 45001) - responses informed to PC 238 and CD was rejected. Re-draft in progress Final Draft International Standard (DIS) Q / ISO Oct 2016 BSC represented on HS/1 committee review group.

25 A new High Level Structure (HLS) for all future ISO standards
Main changes A new High Level Structure (HLS) for all future ISO standards Annex SL (MSS) requirements Scope Normative references Terms and definitions Context of the organisation Leadership Planning Support Operation Performance evaluation Improvement

26 Clause 5: Leadership There are likely to be more areas where Top Management need to demonstrate their involvement and engagement with the safety management system (Draft clause 5.1) such as: Ensuring integration of SMS requirements into the organisation’s business processes Promoting awareness Assuring the SMS achieves its intended results Supporting other relevant management roles to demonstrate their leadership Top Management : “Person or group of persons who direct(s) and control(s) an organisation at the highest level”

27 ISO 45001 Latest Developments PC 283 (WG1) meeting held in January
UK response to survey of key issues to feed into meeting (via OHSAS PG/HS1) Inclusion of “OH&S risk” as a defined term (risks and opportunities) Inclusion of the word “acts” in the definition of “hazard” Should ISO include the term “incident” as a defined term? Should ISO include the term “compliance obligations”? Should the term “workplace” be used as a defined term?

28 ISO 14001: Environmental Standard Update

29 ISO 14001: 2015 - Key changes BSC Webinar : February 25th

35 The next steps 2014 July: The Draft International Standard (DIS) is now available for public comment 2015 February: The Final Draft International Standard (FDIS). Q3 – The International Standard is due to be published The expected transition period is 3 years

36 The next steps Get a copy of the DIS / revised standard and understand the impact it has upon your organisation and its environmental management system Contact your certification body and discuss whether they can help you transition to the requirements of the new standard Develop a transition plan with your certification body which will involve a GAP analysis to allow identification of the training / system development requirements to benefit your organisation for successful certification by the 2018 date.

55 Five Star Occupational Health and Safety Audit
A comprehensive audit to benchmark health and safety management performance against the latest best practice. We have the British Safety Council as our external partner for all these years primarily because of the quality of their auditors. They are very knowledgeable guys with a wide range of industrial experience and they came up with very good ideas. Andy McLean Site Health and Safety Coordinator, Hargreaves Industrial Services Improves safety performance, workforce morale and wellbeing Potentially reduced rates of accidents, injuries and ill health Mitigates litigation costs Enhances reputation.

56 Integrated SHE Five Star Audit
An integrated best practice audit evolving from our two existing Five Star products. It will audit against both OH&S and environmental best practice by looking at the common areas and also the specifics of each subject. Why have we developed this model? There are many synergies and alignment within the two disciplines Many companies now have (or are moving toward) integrated management systems In many organisations, the same person oversees the two disciplines (SHE Advisor / Manager) We are looking to offer a cost effective way of measuring performance against best practice.
