Whether you’re looking for software to manage your health and safety systems, environmental systems or any other systems within your business there are many programs on the market that will manage basically any information or business process you can come up with. The question is, which risk management software is the right one. Once you sign up, how do you make sure you get the most out of your software and how do you encourage employees to fully engage in the new system?
Firstly, there is no system on the market that offers a complete package with relevant content included. There are OHS software, environmental software, and risk compliance software programs that offer templated content. You as the purchaser are still required By Law to assess the risks relevant to the organisation. If the content you’re using is not relevant to the organisational scope, then your system will have major compliance issues.
The first steps to compliance is by understanding the context of the organisation and then developing an integrated management system around ISO9001:2015 Quality Management Systems – Requirements, or Annex SL as the foundational standards in which to compile your system on using the main headings and objectives of the standard. The second step to compiling a relevant integrated management system is to integrate the relevant standards appropriate to the scope of the organisation. Most integrated management systems (IMS) revolve around theses standards:
- ISO9001:2015 – Quality Management Systems – Requirements
- ISO14001:2015 – Environmental Management Systems
- ISO31000:2009 – Risk Management – Principles and Guidelines
- OHSAS18001 – Occupational Health & Safety Standard (soon to be ISO45001 – Occupational Health & Safety Management Systems); and
- ISO27001:2013 – Information Security Management Systems
Although there is no direct requirement to develop a set of company policies and procedures to support the system, there needs to be a clear set of documented instructions or systems to ensure the effective communication and implementation of the risk compliance system.
