Outline Reasons Why An Organization Should Review Its Health And Safety Performance

Reasons such as:

  • To identify substandard health and safety practices and conditions;
  • To identify trends in relation to different types of incident, or incidents in general by analysis of relevant incident data;
  • To compare actual performance with previously set targets;



  • To “benchmark” the organization’s performance against that of similar organizations or an industry norm;
  • To identify whether control measures are in use, to assess their effectiveness and to be able to make decisions on appropriate remedial measures for any deficiencies identified;
  • To identify any new or changed risks;
  • To assess compliance with legal requirements and accepted national/international standards;
  • To be able to provide a Board of Directors or safety committee with relevant information;



  • To boost morale and motivate the workforce;
  • Ultimately because monitoring and review is a vital component of any safety management system
  • It is essential if the system is externally accredited and audited by a specific body.
