WORK HEALTH & SAFETY MANAGEMENT SYSTEMS
(AS/NZS 4801, ISO 18001 and WorkCover Standards)
The management of workplace and employee safety is central to the improvement of efficiency, profit and the reduction of accident, legal, lost time, rehabilitation and workers’ compensation costs.
The Australian and New Zealand Standard (AS/NZS 4801) combined with the various state based Work Compensation, Recovery and Return to Work standards provide a framework for the development of a safety management system integrating rehabilitation methods. Such systems are focused on the identification of hazards and the measurement of risk connected with each. Each item can then be ranked for importance and control.
Work health and safety management systems offer an ideal starting point for the development of quality and environmental management systems and their similarity provides for future integration and simplicity of procedures.
Certification to AS4801 and, or, achievement of various state based Work Compensation, Recovery and Return to Work standards can lead to reduced insurance premiums.
