This award recognises demonstrated commitment to continuous improvement in work health and safety through the implementation of an integrated systems approach.
A systems approach demonstrates that all elements function according to fundamental rules, that analysis of the elements can be completed with a consistent auditing approach and each part of the overall system can itself be studied as a complete system.
In a systematic approach, short-term goals are continually set and met and are seen as contributing to the ‘higher’ goal of eliminating risks to health and safety, improving the viability of the organisation and contributing to the wellbeing of everyone affected by the organisation's operations.
