TSM Safety and Health Protocol, 2020

The purpose of the assessment protocol is to provide guidance to facilities in completing their evaluation of safety and health performance against TSM indicators. The assessment protocol sets out the general expectations for safety and health as part of the TSM initiative. This protocol supports implementation of the TSM Safety and Health Framework.

As with any assessment of a management system, professional judgment is required in assessing the degree of implementation of a system indicator and the quality of management processes and intervention. Application of this protocol will, therefore, require a level of expertise in auditing and systems assessment and knowledge of and experience in the practice of safety and health. This assessment protocol provides an indicator of the level of implementation of proactive safety and health practices as part of the TSM initiative. It is not, of itself, a guarantee of the effectiveness of safety and health activities.
