TOPICS FOR DISCUSSION

Some of the discussion topics for debate are as follow:

AN IMPOSSIBLE DREAM?

- An international standard on occupational health and safety is an impossible dream which will never be achieved?

WHAT IS THE TRUE MEANING OF CONTEXT?

- Is it an escape hatch for the tick box organisations?

WILL IT MINIMISE RISK?

- Will certification make us compliant, but not safer?

ONE SIZE FITS ALL?

- We need different standards for different types of organisations – there is no one size fits all.

ARE AUDITS ON THE WAY OUT?

- Audits are a waste of time and money?

STANDARDS SHOULD BE STANDARD?

- Standards should contain only items that can be black and white, not guidance or requirements that require judgement to meet them.
