Monitoring and reporting are important parts of health and safety arrangements. Management systems allow organisations to receive both specific (eg incident-led) and routine reports on the performance of health and safety policy.
- Measuring performance
- Make sure that your plans have been implemented - ‘paperwork’ on its own is not a good performance measure
- Assess how well the risks are being controlled and if you are achieving your aims. In some circumstances formal audits may be useful
- Investigating accidents and incidents
- Investigate the causes of accidents, incidents or near misses
