The occupational health and safety [OH&S] management system specification AS NZS 4801:2001 has been designed to help organisations establish and maintain a system of management to improve the welfare, health and safety of employees at the workplace.
AS NZS 4801:2001 has been developed to be compatible with ISO 9001:2008 (Quality) and ISO 14001:2004(Environmental) management systems.
Compliance Australia Certification Services is currently accredited by the Joint Accreditation Service of Australia and New Zealand (JAS-ANZ) to provide AS NZS 4801:2001 certification to organisations that fall within the industrial and commercial sectors listed.
Compliance Australia Certification Services can issue certificate to the requirements of JAS-ANZ for the interim and when Compliance Australia Certification Services achieve accreditation the issued certificate will be reissued with the JAS-ANZ mark.
