AS/NZS 4801 is a standard for the requirements of a safety management system, adopted jointly by Australia and New Zealand (AS/NZS). AS/NZS 4801 specifies the requirements for an organisation to systematically manage OH&S in the workplace.
AS/NZS 4801 and OHSA ISO 18001 set out the requirements you’ll need to meet for an effective OH&S management system. Based on established Health & Safety standards, they are designed to work for organizations of all sizes and across all sectors.
A key component in safety management is the system used to record, manage and analyse safety-related data. With an effective system, everyone can see exactly where accidents and unsafe situations are occurring and take proactive steps to eliminate them.
A Safety Management System (SMS) is designed to help a business to create a safe, secure and well-managed workplace by:
- Identifying and minimizing hazards associated with your organisation’s business
- Reducing incidents, accidents and injuries in the workplace
- Reducing risks of legal action for worker’s compensation and liability claims
- Providing due diligence evidence should an incident or accident occur.
An effective Safety Management System protects employers, customers, suppliers, and other members of the public who may be impacted by the work environment.
Implementing a Safety Management System communicates the organisation’s commitment to best practice.
