The American National Standards Institute’s (ANSI) has approved the ANSI/AIHA Z10 standard as revised by the American Industrial Hygiene Association (AIHA).

The ANSI/AIHA Z10-2012 Occupational Health and Safety Management Systems standard is comprised of management principles and systems to help organizations design and implement deliberate and documented approaches to continuously improve their occupational health and safety (OHS) performance.

“The ANSI/AIHA Z10 standard will enable organizations to integrate OHS management into their overall business management systems; it focuses on principles that are broadly applicable to organizations of all sizes and types, not on detailed specifications.,” according to a statement released by the AIHA.

The standard is compatible with relevant OHS, environmental, and quality management standards (e.g., ISO 9000 and 14000), and with approaches to OHS management in common use in the U.S.

For more information about the ANSI/AIHA Z10 Standard, go to www.aiha.org/insideaiha/standards/Pages/Z10.aspx or contact David Hicks, AIHA Secretariat Representative, at standards@aiha.org.
