The Great Leap Forward from Preventive Action to Risk-Based Thinking Webinar


Product Description

  • On-Demand: Any Time

LENGTH: 60 Minutes

Risk is what preventive action is all about. Preventive action (8.5.3 of ISO 9001:2008) is a QMS requirement that has long been misunderstood and often poorly applied. Clause 6.1 of ISO 9001:2015 standard is titled: Actions to address risks and opportunities. This is the essence of the intent of the preventive action requirements found in the current revision of ISO 9001:2015.

The text in ISO 9001:2015 provides additional benefit in that it does a better job of describing the rationale for addressing risk (implementing preventive actions). And, it provides guidance on how and at what point in the QMS it is appropriate and beneficial to take action to mitigate risk. In short, it says why the actions are valuable and how best to make optimum use of the processes for addressing risk.

These additional requirements will help to ensure that actions taken to address risk are effective and beneficial, without creating meaningless paperwork. They also do a better job of integrating the concept of what we’ve traditionally called preventive action into the business of the business.

In this 60-minute course you'll learn how to:

  • Create a culture of risk-based thinking:
    • Training
