What is AS/NZS 4801?

AS/NZS 4801 is the Australian and New Zealand standard for safety management. Updated in 2001 – referred to as AS/NZS 4801:2001 – this standard is the benchmark in assessing Occupational Health and Safety across management systems.

It is regarded as a discipline which guides organisations in developing and implementing policies and objectives that demonstrate a company’s knowledge and control over hazards and risks present in its work environment. The internationally recognised standard is known as OHSAS 18001.

The responsibility of management in regards to the health and safety of their employees, business units, and output have increased due to changes with the introduction of the WHS Act in 2011. As a result, this has made it increasingly important for an organisation to implement a management system to comply with the necessary obligations.

Certified companies will have a certificate that bears one of the following 5 tick symbols.

        

Benefits of AS/NZS 4801 Certification:

  • Encourages a culture of safety in the workplace
  • Proves the effective implementation of an OH&S management system
  • Reduces the onset of workplace injuries, illness and incidents due to increased control
  • Enhances your company’s reputation as a safe and reliable partner, contractor or supplier
  • Demonstrates strong commitment to ongoing improvement of safety performance

What is ISO/OHSAS 18001?

OHSAS 1800:2007 Occupational Health and Safety Management Certification is an international standard which provides a framework to identify, control and decrease the risks associated with health and safety within the workplace. Implementing the standard will send a clear signal to your stakeholders that you view employee’s health and safety as a priority within your organisation.

An increasing number of organisations are completing OHSAS 18001 certification as employers are under increasing pressure to ensure that a rigorous health and safety policy is in place which protects employees against possible occupational risks and reduces the likelihood of accidents in the workplace. By planning ahead an organisation can also identify health and safety risks and conform to health and safety legislation.

Certified companies will have a certificate that bears a stamp similar to the one below. The stamp can vary in size, colour and shape, it can even be embedded within the companies logo, but the key identifier is the words ISO 18001 or OHSAS 18001.

          

Benefits of 18001 Certification:

  • Improves corporate image and credibility among stakeholders, regulators, customers, prospective clients and the public
  • Adoption of international best practice in relation to risk management
  • Ensures health and well-being of employees, sub-contractors and the public
  • Minimisation of liability of employers through adoption of proactive rather than reactive controls
  • Ensures legislative awareness and compliance
  • Reduces accident and incident rates by reducing or eliminating workplace hazards
  • Improves the incident investigation process
  • Increases employee motivation through the provision of a safer workplace and participation process

What is ISO 45001?

ISO 45001 is an International Standard that specifies requirements for an occupational health and safety (OH&S) management system, with guidance for its use, to enable an organization to proactively improve its OH&S performance in preventing injury and ill-health.

ISO 45001 is intended to be applicable to any organisation regardless of its size, type and nature. All of its requirements are intended to be integrated into an organisation’s own management processes.

ISO 45001 enables an organisation, through its OH&S management system, to integrate other aspects of health and safety, such as worker wellness/wellbeing; however, it should be noted that an organisation can be required by applicable legal requirements to also address such issues.

Certified companies will have a certificate that bears a stamp similar to the one below. The stamp can vary in size, colour and shape, it can even be embedded within the companies logo, but the key identifier is the words ISO 45001 Certified or ISO 45001 Registered.

Benefits of using ISO 45001:

An ISO 45001 based OH&S management system will enable an organization to improve its OH&S performance by:

  • developing and implementing an OH&S policy and OH&S objectives
  • establishing systematic processes which consider its “context” and which take into account its risks and opportunities, and its legal and other requirements
  • determining the hazards and OH&S risks associated with its activities; seeking to eliminate them, or putting in controls to minimize their potential effects
  • establishing operational controls to manage its OH&S risks and its legal and other requirements
  • increasing awareness of its OH&S risks
  • evaluating its OH&S performance and seeking to improve it, through taking appropriate actions
  • ensuring workers take an active role in OH&S matters

In combination these measures will ensure that an organization’s reputation as a safe place to work will be promoted, and can have more direct benefits, such as:

  • improving its ability to respond to regulatory compliance issues
  • reducing the overall costs of incidents
  • reducing downtime and the costs of disruption to operations
  • reducing the cost of insurance premiums
  • reducing absenteeism and employee turnover rates
  • recognition for having achieved an international benchmark (which may in turn influence customers who are concerned about their social responsibilities

What is ISO 14001?

ISO 1400 is known as a generic management system standard, meaning that it is relevant to any organisation seeking to improve and manage resources more effectively.

ISO 14001 sets out the criteria for an Environment Management System (EMS). It does not state requirements for environmental performance, but maps out a framework that a company or organisation can follow to set up an effective EMS. Using ISO 1400 can provide assurance to company management and employees as well as external stakeholders that environmental impact is being measured and improved.

The ISO 14001 standard is based on the Plan-Check-Do-Review-Improve cycle. The Plan cycle deals with the beginning stages of an organization becoming ISO 14001-compliant. The Check cycle deals with checking and correcting errors. The Do cycle is the implementation and operation of the ISO 14001 standard within an organization. The Review cycle is a review of the entire process by the organization’s top management. And the Improve cycle is a cycle that never ends as an organization continually finds ways to improve their EMS.

Certified companies will have a certificate that bears a stamp similar to the one below. The stamp can vary in size, colour and shape, it can even be embedded within the companies logo, but the key identifier is the words ISO 14001 Certified or ISO 14001 Registered.

Benefits of ISO 14001 Certification:

By completing ISO 14001 certification your organisation can assure stakeholders that your environmental management system (EMS) meets international industry specific environmental standards. Every company large and small; industrial, manufacturing, services, or trade related had an impact on the environment and can therefore benefit from ISO 14001 certification.
