Measuring the level of workplace accidents is a way to determine how big the accident in an organization or in comparison with similar organizations across industry sectors or even on a national scale. This measurement is done by comparing the number of victims to the amount of labor in a given time period.
Some of these measurements are as follows:


1. ACCIDENT Incident Rate (AIR)

AIR = number of casualties in a year / the number of hours worked in a year) X 1000

This measurement is suitable for organizations that do not keep records of working hours and the length of time and the time of accident victims handling.

ISO Quality Audit

ISO Quality Audit for ISO 9001 and other ISO standards

The Quality audit is the process of systematic examination of a quality system conducted by an internal or external quality auditor or an audit team. The audit is important part of organization's quality management system and is a key element in the ISO quality system standard, ISO 9001.

Audits are an essential management tool to be used for verifying objective evidence of processes, to assess how successfully processes have been implemented, for judging the effectiveness of achieving any defined target levels, to provide evidence concerning reduction and elimination of problem areas. For the benefit of the organisation, quality auditing should not only report non-conformances and corrective actions, but also highlight areas of good practice. In this way other departments may share information and amend their working practices as a result, also contributing to continual improvement.

Internal audits will help you focus your ISO 9001 quality audits on "opportunity identification" rather than on "catching people".

Quality, health, safety and environment (QHSE)

Quality, health, safety, environment

Four components of a responsible corporate management approach based on the belief that all accidents are caused by human error and are, therefore, preventable with better training and administration.

Quality is continuous improvement, quality is customer satisfaction, quality is conformance to requirements, quality is conformance to specifications, quality is cost, quality, time and more definition of a quality

It's easy to say the definition of quality but the reality is very difficult to implement, especially if we want to make a deal with the definition of the work we adopt the entire definition of quality.

ISO 9000, Quality Management

The ISO 9000 family of standards is related to quality management systems and designed to help organizations ensure that they meet the needs of customers and other stakeholders while meeting statutory and regulatory requirements related to the product.

The standards are published by ISO, the International Organization for Standardization, and available through National standards bodies. ISO 9000 deals with the fundamentals of quality management systems, including the eight management principles on which the family of standards is based. ISO 9001 deals with the requirements that organizations wishing to meet the standard have to fulfill.

Third party certification bodies provide independent confirmation that organizations meet the requirements of ISO 9001. Over a million organizations worldwide[5] are independently certified, making ISO 9001 one of the most widely used management tools in the world today. Despite widespread use, however, the ISO certification process has been criticized[6][7] as being wasteful and not being useful for all organizations

Quality First

Quality management has a specific meaning within many business sectors. This specific definition, which does not aim to assure 'good quality' by the more general definition, but rather to ensure that an organization or product is consistent, can be considered to have four main components: quality planning, quality controlquality assurance and quality improvement.
Quality management is focused not only on product/service quality, but also the means to achieve it. 

Quality management therefore uses quality assurance and control of processes as well as products to achieve more consistent quality.
