What is a Management Review Procedure?
Under the AS/NZS ISO 45001 standard, there is a requirement for top management to conduct a review of their OH&S management system. This is to ensure the continuing suitability, adequacy and effectiveness of their AS/NZS ISO 45001 management system.
In general terms, a management review is a process that helps an organization evaluate its OH&S performance. The objective of the review is to establish actions to improve the health and safety management system, its processes and fill any resourcing needs.
How to do a Management Review
A management review should encompass the following:
Safety Management Review Inputs and Outputs

What are Management Review Inputs?
Management review inputs can be described as resources such as people, materials, energy, information and finance that are put into a system to seek the desired output.
When management reviews its business performance, it should take into consideration:
- The ongoing status of actions taken from the previous reviews.
- Any internal or external changes and the continuing suitability, adequacy and effectiveness of the OH&S system.
- Trend analyses of the performance indicators.
- Implications for the strategic direction of the business.
- Customer satisfaction and feedback from interested parties.
- How the company’s health and safety objectives have been met.
- How the company has found non-conformities and how to develop corrective actions to reduce the impact of non-conformities.
- The results and outcomes of monitoring and measuring activities.
- The results and outcomes of internal and external audits.
- Adequacy of resources and if there is a requirement to adjust resourcing.
- How effective actions have been to reduce and mitigate risks and promote opportunities.
- Any implications for compliance with legal obligations and other legal requirements.
- How the identified opportunities for improvement in the health and safety management system have improved performance.
What are Management Review Outputs?
Management review outputs can be described as the actions that are taken to make positive changes and improvements to its business processes.
The intended outputs of the management reviews should be focused on identifying arrangements for:
- The review and update of strategic planning.
- Opportunities for improvement to the effectiveness of the health and safety management system and its associated processes.
- Identifying any need for changes to improve the health and safety management system.
- The review and updating of external and internal issues of concern, needs and expectations.
- Nonconformities, corrective actions and continual improvements.
- OH&S performance including trends of key performance indicators.
- The updating of process objectives, metrics and key performance indicators.
- The review of customer feedback.
- The review of the performance of external providers and suppliers.
- The review of the effectiveness of actions taken to address risks and opportunities.
- Follow-up activities from previous management reviews.
- Identifying any further resource needs.
Note: Responsibilities for the required actions should be assigned to members of the management team. Any included decisions made during the management review meeting, their assigned actions and their due dates should be recorded in the minutes and retained as ’documented information’.
Why Should Objectives and Targets be Periodically Reviewed?
Consistent with the requirements of management review outputs, all OH&S objectives and targets established through a management review should be evaluated to assess their progress. Objectives that have been achieved may either be upgraded to a higher performance level or be closed out to free up resources for improvements in other areas.
If objectives and targets have not been achieved, the review should investigate why and determine the causes for failing to achieve intended outcomes.
New objectives should be established where it is necessary to improve performance to fulfill the policies or other organizational goals. Health and safety policies should be amended when changes within or outside business parameters render a policy inadequate or inappropriate.
