Continuously Improve Risk Management & Automate the Deming Plan-Do-Check-Act Cycle
with AXL Management System
AXL Management System works hand in hand with the widely accepted Deming PDCA management cycle. As stated by the U.K.’s Health and Safety Executive, “Plan, Do, Check, Act helps you achieve balance between the systems and behavioral aspects of management. It also treats health and safety management as an integral part of good management generally, rather than as a stand-alone system.”
When applied to risk management, the Deming cycle can look like this:
Establish customized plans to control your organization's unique risks.
Implement your organization's requirements with ongoing guidance.
Evaluate your organization's performance and implementation results.
Correct deficiencies and modify plans to continually improve performance.
AXL Management System incorporates PDCA principles and automates the risk management process by providing an interactive framework for an organization to establish, implement, and continually improve a customized risk management system.
AXL automates each step of the process and incorporates critical guidance along the way to enhance continuous performance improvement and achievement of organization goals.
Simple compliance audits are a dime a dozen, but none of them look at management systems the way Audit XL (now AXL) does.
If you want to implement a safety management system designed to fit the specific needs of an individual organization, there’s nothing else out there like Audit XL (AXL).

MEET KRIHOS INTERNATIONAL
Krihos International created AXL Management System as a software solution that automates and simplifies organizational Risk Management, reduces costs, eliminates waste, and continually improves operations.
Krihos co-founder Don Kricho relied on his extensive risk and lean management experience with leading international manufacturers to create the conceptual design of the AXL Management System. Co-founder Scott Kricho employed innovative software design to translate the concept into a powerful yet user-friendly application that continues to evolve.
Industry leaders in risk management and engineering/construction management rely on AXL to support their award-winning risk management programs. And Krihos depends on user feedback and suggestions to continually improve AXL capabilities and ensure that the application evolves with client needs.
During his 40-year career as a hands-on occupational safety professional, Don Kricho has experienced a dramatic transformation in his approach to risk management. During the early years, he began questioning many of the widely accepted principles guiding the profession because he could see that the results were inconsistent and unpredictable. Like many others in the industry, Don struggled to effectively integrate the “silver bullets” that were touted as the newest and best way to manage safety and health control in the workplace.
While many professionals continued to struggle with this approach, Don experienced an epiphany when, as S&H Director for Mazda’s first North American auto assembly center, he was introduced to the management system concepts espoused by W. Edwards Deming. He realized that the unparalleled success of the Mazda venture was a tribute to the effectiveness of Deming’s Plan-Do-Check-Act cycle.
Guided by this fundamental concept, Don created the AXL Management System to automate and simplify the application of the Plan-Do-Check-Act cycle. Today, AXL has grown into a comprehensive tool that provides the organization and direction that EHS/risk management professionals need to establish, implement, and continually improve EHS/risk management systems.
Industry leaders in Risk Management and Engineering / Construction management rely on AXL to support their award-winning Risk Management programs. KRIHOS relies on input from these and other users to continually improve AXL’s capabilities and ensure that the application evolves with customer needs.
We looked at several applications before deciding on Audit XL (now AXL). The structure of Audit XL (AXL) and the obvious thought and expertise that has been incorporated into its design is evident and, in our opinion, gives it a significant lead in its sector.
We highly recommend Audit XL (AXL) and KRIHOS, they are BOTH user friendly, innovative and focused.
