ARFSET to restart in any abending step?

I have 600+ IBM z/OS batch jobs.  The restart instructions for about 10% of them is simply, 'restart in abending step up to 5 times regardless of the abending step'.  'abending' usually means anything that is not a zero return code, not necessarily a true abend.  Is there a way to set up a single ARFSET that just says 'restart in abending step up to 5 times regardless of the abending step'?  maybe someone else can suggest a different technique?    

 

I had another population that were just 'force complete' so I set up a generic ARFSET for that action, but I'd like to exploit workload automation to handle the auto restarts too.
