OHS Certification Australia – AS/NZS4801

AS/NZS 4801 and OHSAS 18001 accreditation systems for your Australian business

The safety of your staff and customers in your working environment is paramount. It is also a legal requirement that you do whatever is reasonably practicable to ensure their safety.

An effective Occupational Health & Safety Management System has the capability to improve your organisation’s Safety performance by identifying hazards, assessing the level of risk and, where necessary, putting effective control measures in place.

Some of the key benefits of having an ECAAS Certified Occupational Health & Safety Management System can include:
  • Reduction of risk and liability
  • Improved employee morale and performance
  • Enhancement of your reputation as a safe and reliable partner, contractor or supplier
  • Significant reduction of costs associated with injuries

There are three commonly recognised and accepted Standards for OHS certification in Australia and New Zealand, which are AS/NZS 4801, OHSAS 18001 and the recently published ISO 45001:2018 which will replace OHSAS 18001 by March 2021. Please contact us if you would like a complimentary checklist for this new Standard or information regarding this Migration.

The difference between OHSAS 18001 Certification and AS/NZS 4801 Accreditation

There is not a great deal of difference between the requirements of the OHSAS18001 & AS/NZS 4801 standards as they both aim at achieving the same outcome and they do so in a very similar manner based on well-established and generally recognised Management System principles.

In broad terms, health is a key area in OHSAS18001 certification requirements whilst AS/NZS 4801 focuses more on the elimination of workplace injury, however both standards are ultimately concerned with providing injury and illness free work places.
