POPEA – Cornerstone of OSH Management

In Occupational Safety and Health (OSH) Management, the acronym POPEA or POPMA can be regarded as the corner stone of OSH Management. But what does POPEA/POPMA stand for?



  • P – Policy
  • O – Organisation
  • P – Planning
  • M – Monitoring
  • A – Action

As a general framework, POPMA.POPEA may have other variance and modifications depending on the needs of the company, organisation or standard. But this is the, if not among the, basis for a systematic OSH Management System.
