Documented information in Clause 7

Documented information is required and needed for auditing. This information can be in any media and from any source.  Because Clause 8 is Operation this requires implementation of the planning objectives, using the hierarchy of controls to reduce risks.  And Operation includes Procurement, see our Procurement Guide to ISO 45001.  Also this clause included emergency planning. Clause 9 is Performance Evaluation.  Such as monitoring, measuring, auditing.  And this includes internal and external auditing.  Evidence is required for certification and accreditation.  ISO 17001 and ISO 19011 apply to auditing OHSMS and certification bodies.  Clause 10 is Improvement which includes continual improvement and incident investigation, learning from accidents, injuries, near misses, close calls and cases of ill health.
