What are the benefits of getting Safety Certification?
Certification to the Australian and New Zealand standard for safety management system AS/NZS 4801 demonstrates that there is management commitment to safe work practices and the appropriate business infrastructure to make every reasonable attempt to bring certainty and consistency in safety performance.
- Ensures you have an effective OHS policy and objectives
- Reduces workplace injuries
- A process to identify hazards and manage safety risks
- Demonstrate your commitment to safety to internal and external stakeholders
- Access to key markets
OHSAS 18001 has also been designed to be easily integrating to ISO9001 Quality Management Systems and ISO14001 Environmental Management Systems in mind. If you’re already certified to either or both of these standards OHSAS 18001 is able to be easily integrated with your existing systems or if its something you may need in the future implementing your system to OHSAS 18001 can be easily integrated into ISO9001 and ISO14001 systems as required.
The standard also requires an organization to create, monitor and measure their own occupational, health and safety performance. This will allow your organisation to measure its own performance, address these issues and continue to refine and improve your organisational occupational, health and safety performance; the standard facilitates continual improvement.
