Complying with health and safety standards may lead to improvements in productivity, reduced costs, and may even boost business development. Using HSEQ manager to manage the processes will also reduce the amount of time required to become compliant and help with continuous improvement within your organisation.
The ISO 9000 family addresses various aspects of quality management and contains some of ISO’s best known standards. The standards provide guidance and tools for companies and organizations who want to ensure that their products and services consistently meet customer’s requirements, and that quality is consistently improved.
ISO has developed a new standard, ISO 45001, Occupational health and safety management systems - Requirements, that will help organizations reduce this burden by providing a framework to improve employee safety, reduce workplace risks and create better, safer working conditions, all over the world.
The standard was developed by a committee of occupational health and safety experts and follows other generic management system approaches such as ISO 14001 and ISO 9001. It will consider other International Standards in this area such as OHSAS 18001, the International Labour Organization's ILO-OSH Guidelines, various national standards and the ILO's international labour standards and conventions.

OHSAS 18001 is a widely used, and internationally applied, British standard for occupational health and safety management systems. It exists to help all kinds of organisations put in place demonstrably sound occupational health and safety best practices.
OHSAS 18001 requires an organisation to formally document their health and safety policy and keep ongoing records that it continues to adhere to the requirements of the standard.
AS/NZS 4801 is similar to OHSAS 18001 in that it is used as a benchmark to assess occupational health & safety management systems for organisations. Although it is an Australian/ New Zealand Standard, it is used widely by organisations around the world to manage workplace health and safety.
The standard is used to enable an organisation to formulate health and safety policies and objectives, whilst considering legislative requirements and information about potential hazards or risks.

The quality management system consists of interrelated processes. Understanding how results are produced by this system enables an organization to optimize the system and its performance.
HSEQ Manager provides information through dashboard to help improve processes and to monitor, analyse and evaluate the performance of organisational activities. See Advanced dashboard module.
Decision making can be a complex process, and it always involves some uncertainty. It often involves multiple types and sources of inputs, as well as their interpretation, which can be subjective.
HSEQ Manager implements several modules to help with decision making. All data captured is translated to management in graphical and tabled format and can be filtered by project, division, type, users. Map View provides additional information based on geographical location.
Improvement is essential for an organization to maintain current levels of performance, to react to changes in its internal and external conditions and to create new opportunities.
