Under ISO 14001, 9001 and 18001, businesses must establish objectives. Objectives must be documented, measurable (if practicable), communicated, monitored, and updated (as required).
The Objectives register allows you to document your objectives on LUS. Objectives can then be linked to relevant risks and opportunities and to your legal register.
How do I add an objective?
1. There are three ways to add an Objective.
From the navigation bar
Go to the Objectives tab and select Objectives Register.
Select the ‘Add Objective’ button
From your legal register
When in a legislation entry, select the Objectives tab
Select the ‘Assign As Objective’ button
This will create an objective which is automatically linked to this piece of legislation
From your Risk and Opportunities Register
When in a Risk/ Opportunity entry, select the ‘Assign as Objective’ button
This will create an objective which is automatically linked to this risk or opportunity
All three ways take you to the same Add Objective form:
