New Z10 Standard Available

The newly revised standard, American National Standard for Occupational Health and Safety Management Systems (ANSI/AIHA/ASSE Z10-2012), was approved by ANSI.
 Former secretariat AIHA recently relinquished all of its secretariats to ASSE, making ASSE Z10 secretariat and copyright holder of the 2012 and 2005 versions of the Z10 standard.

The Z10 standard provides an overall blueprint for widespread benefits in safety and health, as well as in productivity, financial, performance, quality and other organizational and business objectives. Appendices address roles and responsibilities, policy statements, assessment and prioritization, audit information and more.
The standard also provides critical management systems requirements and guidelines for improvement of occupational health and safety. Experts from labor, government, professional organizations and industry formulated this valuable standard after extensive examination of current national and international standards, guidelines and practices.
