Título An approach to occupational health risk management for a diversified international corporation
Información bibliográfica Apr. 1989, Vol.50, No.4, p.224-228. 5 ref.
Resumen The 3-step programme of plant reviews involves initial assessment visits designed to determine the compliance status and degree of sophistication of the occupational health programme. These assessments are followed by more formal assurance reviews which include consultation, training, and programme support. Finally, formal surveillance reviews are conducted to verify compliance with respect to company and regulatory agency requirements. Each type of review requires planning and adherence to a standardised process to allow comparability of the information generated. Critical elements of this approach include senior management support, knowledge of applicable regulations, and communication of results. Reporting is done on several levels and is designed to communicate relevant information to management from line supervisors to the board of directors. Corrective action, where indicated, is planned by local managers with assistance from other groups as required. Corrective action plan implementation is tracked in conjunction with other monitoring mechanisms.
