Z1000-14 - Occupational health and safety management

CSA Z1000 is applicable to organizations of all sizes, in virtually any industry. While your business may not pose clear or obvious risks to workers, every workplace has inherent risks that need to be effectively identified and managed to help keep workers safe.

•Provides clarification of nonconformities with explanation of the distinction between “corrective” and “preventive” actions
•Guidance on worker participation in OHSMS-related activities, including involvement of health & safety committees
•Provides an expansion of the requirements for OHSMS management review and plans for continual improvement
•Addresses hazard elimination, risk identification and assessment and the concept of “residual risk” as that remaining after all controls have been implemented (ref. CSA Z1002)
•Provides competency requirements for OHSMS auditors (both internal and external)
•Details provisions and guidance for internal and external audits, including audit program components and selection of the auditor
•Introduces a new table detailing the corresponding clauses between Z1000 and the other standards in the Z1000 series (Annex D)
•Expanded procurement and contracting requirements

Second European Survey of Enterprises on New and Emerging

The second edition of EU-OSHA's Europe-wide survey of enterprises, ESENER-2, collected responses from almost 50,000 enterprises on OSH management and workplace risks, with a particular focus on psychosocial risks, worker participation, and drivers and barriers to action. The aim is to provide nationally comparable data to help in policy-making and assist workplaces to deal with risks more effectively. This initial analysis presents a selection of the results.

The Role of Accounting in Work Health and Safety Governance

Currently there is a lack of standardised and accepted indicators to measure the work health and safety performance of organisations and businesses at the organisational level. Work health and safety information can and is being reported on a voluntary basis, however reporting is often selective and inconsistent. This hinders comparisons of work health and safety performance and due diligence reporting over time and across organisations.

These papers are a series of research papers that will inform a broader three staged policy development project taking place over the next three years. The aim of the project is to develop a standardised set of indicators businesses can use in annual reports as well as guidelines for the development of lead and lag indicators relevant to the size and nature of the business.
