AS/NZS 4801:2001 Certification Brisbane Queensland
AS 4801 accreditation for your Queensland Business
A major priority for every business should be the safety of anyone that comes into contact with it, whether it be staff or customers. It is also a firm’s legal obligation to take reasonable precautions to ensure that safety.
An effective OHS certification is integral for working towards improving your organisation’s safety performance by identifying areas that need improvement, analysing the level of risk, and if necessary putting effective control measures into action.
Some of the key benefits of having an AS 4801 Certification
- Safety of your personnel
- Reduction of risk and liabilities
- Enhancement of your reputation as a safe and reliable contractor or supplier
- Significant reduction of costs associated with injuries
There are two commonly recognised OHS certifications in New Zealand and Australia. These two are AS/NZS 4801:2001 and OHSAS 18001:2007, and they are very similar in nature.
What is the difference between OHSAS 18001 and AS/NZS 4801 Accreditation?
There is very little difference between these two accreditations, as they both focus on creating the same result and do so using similar methods. Both standards are ultimately concerned with providing injury and illness free work places, by following Management System Principles such as Plan-Do-Check-Act.
AS4801 is more concerned with mitigating workplace injury, whereas OHSAS 18001 has a broader scope, focusing on health as a general key area.
AS4801 is more common in Australia, and OHSAS 18001 is more common with internationally operating companies. It is possible and recommended to adhere to both standards.
As well as providing AS/NZS 4801 Certifications for OHS Management, we provide ISO 9001 Certifications for Quality Management Systems, ISO 14001 for Environmental Management Systems and OHSAS 18001 Certifications for OHS Management.
