AS NZS 4801
Occupational Health & Safety Management Systems
Karza provides occupational health and safety management system (AS/NZS 4801) development, implementation, auditing and review services to organisations of all sizes. We are committed to helping you achieve your health and safety objectives and targets.
AS/NZS 4801 was first published in Australia and New Zealand in 2001 as a joint Australian and New Zealand standard which specified the uniform requirements for an occupational health and safety management system (OH&SMS). Today, the AS/NZS 4801 standard is the most common safety management system for Australian and New Zealand businesses. The standard is also utilised in other countries.
Karza can also help you evolve your occupational health and safety management system to better managing your organisations psychosocial risks and help protect your employee's mental health, through the implementation of ISO 45003 'Occupational health and safety management – Psychological health and safety at work – Guidelines for managing psychosocial risks'.
At Karza we consider a properly implemented and maintained AS/NZS 4801 structured OH&S management system should be a significant business tool for an organisation; helping to drive safety, evolve organisational culture, improve performance and reduce product and service delivery risks.
However, all organisations need to consider the AS/NZS 4801 standard (and any certified management systems) with open eyes. Any management system is only functional (and effective) when an organisation is committed to process implementation, maintenance and continually improvement. Often organisations engage a supplier, service provider or contractor naively believing an AS/NZS 4801 'certification' or 'accreditation' means they can ignore implementing their own contractor and supplier assessment and monitoring programmes. Too often such an approach to risk management leaves a business dangerously exposed to the failures and flaws of a third party.
