Occupational health and safety management systems ANSI-AIHA-z10-2012 is a voluntary consensus standard on occupational health and safety management systems. It uses recognized management system principles in order to be compatible with quality and environmental management systems standards such as the ISO 9000 and ISO 14000 series. The standard also draws from approaches used by the International Labor Organization’s (ILO) guidelines on Occupational Health and Safety Management Systems and from systems in use in organizations in the U.S.
The design of ANSI Z10 encourages integration with other management systems to facilitate organizational
effectiveness using the elements of the Plan-Do-Check-Act (PDCA) model as the basis for continual improvement. PDCA was popularized by Dr. W. Edwards Deming and is used as a framework by most management system standards.
While the scope of ANSI Z10 covers occupational health and safety, it can also be used to support other initiatives
such as social responsibility and sustainability. Sustainable growth encourages organizations to continually improve
all facets of their business. The adoption of Z10 fits well with organizations desiring long-term sustainable growth in a
socially responsible manner by reducing injury and illness and improving overall employee well-being.

Occupational health and safety management systems ANSI’s Book’s cover

The purpose of the standard is to provide organizations with an effective tool for continual improvement of their
occupational health and safety performance. An OHSMS implemented in conformance with this standard can help
organizations minimize workplace risks and reduce the occurrence and cost of occupational injuries, illnesses, and
fatalities. Some organizations already have developed an effective OHSMS appropriate to their needs but may not
conform precisely to this standard. In those instances, the standard may serve as a voluntary tool to identify possible
opportunities to improve their systems. Each organization electing to conform to this standard will determine how it
will evaluate its conformance to the standard.

ANSI

ANSI/AIHA® Z10 focuses primarily on the strategic levels of policy and the processes to ensure the policy is effectively
carried out. The standard does not provide detailed procedures, job instructions, or documentation mechanisms. Each
organization must design these according to their needs.
