Management Systems

A management system is similar to a recipe. Without a recipe the results are variable at best! Also, if the ingredients in the recipe, or resources supplied to an organisation, do not meet a certain standard then the result will be worthless. When organisations use a management system to apply standards relevant to their operations then they are more likely to consistently meet the needs both of their internal teams and their market.

Adaptive Health and Safety Ltd work to the risk management standards set by International Organization for Standardization. ISO – Standards are internationally agreed standards that apply to specific activities eg food service or environmental protection. The key components are:

1. Lead
2. Plan
3. Support
4. Operate
5. Improve
