Occupational Health & Safety Management Systems
Karza provides occupational health and safety management system (ISO 45001) 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.
ISO 45001‘Occupational health and safety management systems – Requirements with guidance for use’ is expected to replace BS OHSAS 18001 and AS/NZS4801. As more organisations move towards ISO9001:2015 and ISO14001:2015 the structural similarity of ISO45001, combined with a simple Plan-Do-Check-Act (PDCA) model, will see the standard quickly accepted by the business community.
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 ISO 45001 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.

45001 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 ISO 45001 '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
