OHS (occupational health and safety) Management Systems are a key component of providing corporate governance processes for OHS. However, the paper system must be supported by the human and information infrastructure to enable the management system to be acted upon. This paper explores the implementation of a computer system to assist in providing a corporate governance system of OHS in a large, diverse Commonwealth government department. Consultation with stakeholders was undertaken and their comments were used to define the changes needed in the OHS system. Viable System Diagnosis was used to suggest an appropriate human and information infrastructure.
