AS/NZS 4801 Occupational Health And Safety

AS/NZS 4801:2001 is an occupational health and safety standard which is aimed at helping organisations develop and maintain a system that is focused on improving employees’ health and safety.

The AS/NZS 4801:2001 is focused on identifying hazards, assessing and evaluating risks and implementing necessary control measures aimed at minimising accidents.

The 4801 advocates for the top management to set and communicates workplace safety policies and objectives. The 45001 standard requires organisations to demonstrate leadership by taking accountability for the performance of OH&S and assisting lower management within the organisation.

The ISO 45001 standard also takes a more risk based focus.

The AS/NZS 4801:2001 standard is compatible with other international standards such as the quality (ISO 9001) and environmental (ISO 14001) management systems.
