    Did you mean safety? Yes you can. It can be one of the approaches to support clause 7.1.4. In ISO/TS 9002:2016, one of the examples in addressing social and psychological factors is about safety. Here's the example statement "allowing sufficient rest time to prevent accidents, for example, by limiting pilots’ flying hours or limiting the driving hours for those involved in providing freight and distribution services". But a formal OH&S management system is not a requirement.

    Which "safety" are you referring to? Product? Occupational (workplace)?

    Hello Rajan,
    I use an integrated QMS: not only our Quality documents, but also Environmental documents (ISO 14001) and all other information (including safety related documents such as risk analyses, instruction cards for safe operating of equipment, ... ) employees should have access to, can be found there.
    It's not 'legislative' to do this in such a way (ISO has no legal base).
    Thinking about risks is an obligation within ISO 9001. To me this also means safety aspects.
