Occupational Safety and Health: Introduction to Advanced Risk Management

  • 1P1: Introduction to Advanced Risk Management

    Welcome, to OSHT 2337: Advanced Risk Management.During this course we will be focused on exploring ISO Standards to include ISO 45001, ISO 31000, and ISO 19000. Throughout the course we will strive to answer the following questions:

    • What steps do we take to interpret and apply the safety management systems in a business, government, or other workplace organization?
    • How do we draft a plan based on one or more of these systems?
    • Why do I need to apply these systems?
    • How do I harmonize a safety management system with operations, and continue to function?

    The field of occupational safety and health (OSH) has become a topic of increasing importance throughout many industries. The establishment of the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) in 1970 reflected the recognition that safety in the workplace is a basic expectation for all employees. Originally addressing concerns in industry and hazards associated with mechanical injury, the field of occupational health and safety has expanded across workplace environments, from the office to the airplane, as well as to the laboratory and the vivarium.First, take a moment to introduce yourself to the class – your professional background, your reason for coming to the field of safety, and a safety moment that convinced you that safety should take precedence in the workplace.I look forward to this semester with you all!

    What is a Management System?

    Attached Files:

    Safety programs and safety management systems are often confused terminology.A safety management system is described as the set of procedures an organization needs to follow in order to meet its objectives. It is the framework of policies, systems, processes, and procedures used to ensure that an organization can fulfill all tasks required to achieve its defined business objectives.A safety program is primarily reactive, and has separate components that “work” independent of the others. The management system would take the pieces of the safety program and integrate them into the system which will allow an organization to follow Deming’s Plan-Do-Check-Act model.Elements of an Effective Safety Program – OSHA

    ISO 45001 Occupational health and safety

    Over 7 600 people die each day from work-related accidents or diseases – that’s over 2.78 million every year*.The burden of occupational injuries and diseases is significant, both for employers and the wider economy, resulting in losses from early retirements, staff absence and rising insurance premiums.To combat the problem, ISO has developed a new standard, ISO 45001, Occupational health and safety management systems – Requirements, that will help organizations reduce this burden by providing a framework to improve employee safety, reduce workplace risks and create better, safer working conditions, all over the world.The standard was developed by a committee of occupational health and safety experts, and follows other generic management system approaches such as ISO 14001 and ISO 9001. It will take into account other International Standards in this area such as OHSAS 18001, the International Labour Organization’s ILO-OSH Guidelines, various national standards and the ILO’s international labour standards and conventions.source: International Labour Organisation – https://www.iso.org/iso-45001-occupational-health-…
