Steps to Safety Certification (AS NZS 4801)
This alignment of the management system documents helps in the facilitation of Integrated management systems.
The following steps help form the basic structure of the management system and link into the structure of AS NZS 4801.
During the planning stage you should:
Ensure you have the commitment of top management
Define, with the authorization of top management, your company's occupational health and safety policy
Planning must be completed to establish a framework for identifying hazards, risk assessments and the implementation of necessary control measures
Legal obligations must be identified and understood, objectives set and a management programme for achieving them implemented; this entire process should be documented

At this point you should:
Establish roles and responsibilities
Develop procedures for the consultation and communication of OHS information to employees and other interested parties
Document your processes and develop a system of document and data control
Apply a system of operational control
Establish plans and procedures for emergencies
Check your management system and take any necessary corrective action
You should aim to continually improve your management system by:
Introducing performance, measuring and monitoring practices
Establishing and documenting responsibility and authority for accidents, incidents, non-conformities, and corrective and preventative action
Establishing a procedure for records and records management
Auditing and assessing the performance of the management system
Performing management reviews of the system at identified and defined intervals
