Revised Standard Provides Guide for Safety Management

Wednesday, September 25, 2019

The  revised ANSI/ASSP Z10.0-219 standard that guides implementation of safety and health management systems is now available from the American Society of Safety Professionals (ASSP) after gaining approval by the American National Standards Institute (ANSI). 

ANSI/ASSP Z10.0-2019 improves organizational alignment and communication by eliminating silos and integrating planned processes into business systems. Safety and health management systems have customized elements based on the organization’s characteristics such as hazard exposures, risk levels, industry type and business processes. Workforce factors such as permanent, temporary, contracted or transient employees are also considered. Safe work environments emerge from the interaction of elements such as organizational leadership, employee engagement, risk assessments, hazard controls and monitoring and measurement.

A safety management systems track will be available at ASSP’s SafetyFOCUS immersive education event set for Feb. 13-20 in Las Vegas. Full-day courses will highlight systems-based thinking and the implementation of the revised Z10 standard. More information on the updated Z10 standard is available in Episode 19 of ASSP’s Safety Standards and Tech Pubs Podcast, where Z10 committee member Amy Timmerman discusses the key developments.
