Why is health and safety important?
Managing the health and safety of your most valuable resource, your employees, is vital to the success of all organisations. Poor performance in occupational health and safety (OHS) leads to massive costs for all businesses due to work-related illnesses, injuries, and even fatalities.
How can occupational health and safety be managed?
Organisations can help to protect themselves and their employees by implementing an occupational health and safety management system (OHSMS). This ensures your business:
- Has an effective OHS policy and objectives
- Can establish, assess, and review its own OHS procedures
- Can demonstrate its commitment to OHS to others, via self-declaration or certification
AS/NZS 4801: 2001 is used as the benchmark to assess Occupational Health & Safety Management systems for organisations.

To help organisations develop and implement AS/NZS 4801, a complementary standard has been developed:
AS/NZS 4804: Occupational Health and Safety Management Systems - General Guidelines on Principles, Systems and Supporting Techniques
This standard contains vital information about meeting legal requirements and invaluable guidance on how to establish sustained improvement in health and safety performance in your business.
