A formal management system or framework can help you manage health and safety in your organisation. There are a number of national and international standards that can be followed as well as sector specific frameworks and your own in house procedures and codes, e.g.
BS OHSAS 18001:2007 Occupational health and safety management systems
BS EN ISO 9001:2008 Quality management system
Your own in-house standards, procedures or codes
Management systems are typically based around the management system model of Plan, Do, Check, Act with the key principle of driving continuous improvement.
Historically health and safety management systems were managed as a stand-alone system however there are significant benefits to integrating health and safety with your other business management systems e.g. quality, environmental, food safety etc.
