SafetyMAP (Safety Management Achievement Program) is an audit tool that provides the means to undertake an independent audit and review of an organization's health and safety management system.
SafetyMAP helps to establish safer working environments consistent with the requirements of health and safety legislation, that will protect people at work by eliminating, or better managing, health and safety hazards.
The audit criteria within SafetyMAP enable an organization to:
- Measure the performance of its health and safety program
- Implement a cycle of continuous improvement
- Compare its health and safety performance system to a recognized benchmark
- Gain recognition for the standards achieved by its management of health and safety
The audit criteria describes features one might observe in a robust health and safety management system. However an organization may not require all of these features to have an effective health and safety management system, in fact, it's components should be based on organizational needs, circumstances and risk exposure.
