AS/NZS4801 Accreditation for your Western Australian Business
WESTERN AUSTRALIA Certification is Western Australia’s dedicated Certification Body, specialised in the provision of this internationally recognised level of Certification to Small and Medium sized (SME) companies in particular.
Occupational Health & Safety is incredibly important, regardless of what organisation you’re a part of. Whilst it should be common sense, it is also a firm’s legal obligation to follow guidelines that make your workplace a safe one.
An OHS Certification whether it be AS/NZS4801 or OHSAS 18001, is crucial for creating a structure where your company’s safety is analysed, measured, and improved upon where necessary. Assessing and monitoring your business is part of this certification to make your workplace as safe as it can be, consistently and continuously.
Some of the key benefits of having an AS/NZS 4801 in Perth
- Safety of your personnel
- Reduction of risk and liabilities
- Enhancement of your reputation as a safe and reliable contractor or supplier
- Significant reduction of costs associated with injuries
The two common OHS Certifications are the AS/NZS 4801:2001 and the OHSAS 18001:2007. West Coast Certifications offer both, AS/NZS4801 is more frequently found in Australia, whilst OHSAS 18001 is more common in international organisations.
Is there a difference between OHSAS 18001 and AS/NZS 4801 Accreditation?
Both accreditations are incredibly alike; they both have the same general outcome, and aim to achieve this outcome using similar techniques. Both internationally recognised standards relate to ensuring workplaces are injury and illness free, both following management system principles which encourage a plan-do-check-act approach which means analysing the situation, performing a set of actions, monitoring it, and adjusting if need be.
One minor difference is that AS4801 has more of an inclination towards workplace injury, and OHSAS 18001 is more of a general concept focusing on workplace health as a whole.
In Australia, AS4801 is a more common standard to come across, whereas OHSAS 18001 is more regularly found when dealing with internationally operating companies. Having both certifications for your business is recommended.
