Occupational Health and Safety Management System
An Occupational Health and Safety (OHS) Management System 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 OHS Management System protects employers, customers, suppliers, and other members of the public who may be impacted by the work environment.
Advantages of an OHS Management System
- Best Practice – communicates the organisations commitment to high performance standards.
- Cost reduction – work-related accidents will be minimised thereby reducing the associated costs of injury, illness, death, damage to equipment, delayed deliveries, high insurance premiums and staff turnover.
- Contribution to productivity – greater reliability and less time spent rectifying mistakes, and fewer deviations from procedure.
- Potential to increase staff morale
- Enables staff to concentrate on core business activities
- Improves performance and productivity.
As a small or medium business manager, the thought of creating Systems to manage Work Health and Safety, on top of all the other pressures of business, can be overwhelming. However, managing Health and Safety does not have to be difficult.
Our OH&S consultant will come to your workplace to conduct a review of your current procedures and help to identify any Safety issues relevant to your business. Our OH&S consultant will then discuss possible Safety solutions that could be effectively and efficiently implemented in your workplace. From these discussions, our consultant will develop all of the policies, procedures, forms and other relevant materials to allow your organisation to have an operational organisational health and safety program which, when properly operated, will result in the successful Certification of the System under AS/NZS 4801.
What is AS/NZS 4801
AS/NZS 4801 is an international 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 Health and Safety in the workplace.
The Importance a Safety Management System has on Quality Control
Where industry expertise meets exceptional customer service
Managing workplace safety is an important goal that many companies have recognized as a logical and effective way to provide a better working environment for employees and to reduce corporate costs.
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.
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.
