AS/NZS 4801:2001 Occupational Health and Safety Management System.

Decrease work-related injuries, prevent accidents, and improve productivity with the AS/NZS 4801:2001 occupational health and safety standard (OHS).

Your business success depends on the occupational health and safety of your employees. If your company delivers poor performance in this aspect, your costs will rise excessively and you may even have to face downtime. You can prevent all of this if you assess and manage OHS issues through a management system.

An OHS protects you and your employees by helping you identify and control health and safety risks, thereby reducing accidents. The AS/NZS 4801:2001 standard also ensures that your business practices are in compliance with health and safety legal requirements.

What is OHS Management Sytem?

AS/NZS 4801:2001 is an occupational health and safety standard which is aimed at helping organisations develop and maintain a system that is focused on improving employees’ health and safety. The system aids in identifying hazards, assessing and evaluating risks, and implementing necessary control measures which are aimed at minimizing accidents.

The system is compatible with other international standards such as the quality (ISO 9001) and environmental (ISO 14001) management systems.
