Safety Management Systems (AS NZS 4801)
The importance of occupational health and safety (OHS) cannot be understated. The legal, financial and personal ramifications of workplace injury are enormous. Poor safety management has the potential to ruin businesses and lives.
With respect to OHS, the workplace environment is continually changing. The effective assessment and management of OHS issues is paramount. With continual changes to state and federal legislation, an efficient Safety Management System (SMS) can thoroughly assist an organisation with regulatory compliance.
Demonstrating your commitment to safety, a well-structured Safety Management System can give your business a competitive advantage. In some cases, particularly contract tendering, it is mandatory to show evidence of an effective health and safety program.
