||This article explains how a continuous improvement system based on the Deming cycle (or PDCA; plan, do, check, act) can be applied to the occupational safety and health plan of the enterprise as well as to each of its work procedures or instructions, including the hazard evaluation. A continuous improvement system to correct unsafe acts can help in changing behaviours by means of internal safety inspections coupled to workers' training.
