WSH policies provides the principles in which the employees shall conduct their business, provide rooms for improvement as areas where remedial action is required are identified and it also creates the opportunity for feedback and motivation

External Audit
Results from an audit can be consider as relevant organization information because it constitutes the “feedback loop” to the planning stage which enables  an organization to reinforce, maintain and develop it’s ability to reduce risks to reduce risks to the fullest extent and to ensure the continued  efficiency, effectiveness and reliability of the WSH management system
