Step 5 - Review and Improve

It is important to know the assessment process and control process was complete and accurate.  It is also essential to be sure that implemented changes in the workplace have not introduced new hazards or changed lower priority hazards to higher priority hazards.

Conducting a review on a regular basis ensures that control methods are appropriate and effective. Reviews work to continuously improve workplace health and safety.

To ensure health and safety controls meet the changing needs of the workplace, addition reviews may be triggered by the following:

  • Start of a new project
  • Change in work process or flow
  • Change or addition to tools, equipment, machinery (including locations or the way they are to be used)
  • New employees
  • Moving to a new building or work area
  • Introduction of new chemicals or substances
  • New information available about a current product
