4.2.1. Written Procedure and Arrangements

Question 2.1.1

Is there a written procedure describing how the organisation will review, and revise as necessary, its OH&S Policy?


Guidance: The organisation's OH&S Policy must be reviewed periodically and revised as necessary to take into account relevant changes. The timing of, and responsibility for, these reviews should be recorded in a written procedure.

Verification guidance: Answer "No" to this question if there is no written procedure describing how the organization will review, and revise as necessary, its OH&S Policy, OR the procedure does not deal with the timing of the reviews, OR the procedure does not deal with responsibility for the reviews, OR the procedure is inadequate in any other way. Note. The relevant material may be included in the review procedure, there is no need for a separate document.
