Understanding the AS/NZS ISO 45001 Context of an Organization
Defining the AS/NZS ISO 45001 context of the organization refers to the conditions that exist or occur within a business. The term is often used to describe the relevant factors that make up a business’s internal and external environment.
There are several reasons why it is important to understand the context of an organizational structure, including:
- To provide valuable insights into the business’s culture and values.
- To help identify internal and external stakeholders and their interests, including relevant cultural, social, political, legal, financial, technological, economic, as applicable.
- To help to determine the positive or negative aspects of the competitive and market economic environments.
- To provide information about the business’s past and how it has evolved to achieve the intended outcomes.
Understanding the context of an organization means defining the scope, influences and effects of various elements within the organizational structure. This may include the organizations:
- Culture, goals and objectives.
- Approach to governance (with consideration to laws and regulations).
- Customers, communication and information
- The complexity of a wide range of products and services.
- Documented information.
- The flow of processes and size of markets, etc,
- Audit requirements in an ISO certification body.
