ISO 45001 clause 4.4 does not require you to keep documented information, so there is no requirement to have something written down to meet this requirement. Many companies will create a flowchart showing the processes of the OHSMS, including the interactions between them, but this piece of written evidence is not a requirement of the standard. It is important to remember that written evidence is not the only evidence used in an audit, statements of fact and assessments at the end of the audit are also used.

This requirement is often assessed once an entire audit is completed, rather than asking for one piece of evidence; where at the audit conclusion the auditors will look at all of their evidence and findings and ask “Does all of this evidence indicate that the OHSMS is established, implemented, maintained and improved?”

 

You can learn a bit more about what documented information is mandatory in the whitepaper: Checklist of Mandatory Documentation Required by ISO 45001, https://info.advisera.com/45001academy/free-download/checklist-of-mandatory-documentation-required-by-iso-45001
