How do I get Certified?
As an organisation, the steps involved for you are:
1. Applying for certification:
Review and accept our customised Proposal, and you’re underway!
2. Achieving certification:
Firstly, a pre-certification audit or “test run” will be conducted either on-site (at your premises) or off-site (at our premises) or both, to see whether your management systems are suitable. Areas of concern will be reported. Once concerns have been actioned, an on-site certification audit will be conducted, where we will examine the extent to which you address the program criteria. Areas of concern will be reported. Once we are satisfied there are no outstanding issues that present an unacceptable risk to you, your employees, customers, regulators, Equal Assurance or others, we can proceed to issue a Certificate of Confidence. Well done!
3. Maintaining certification:
Depending on the level of risk, we will conduct a series of surveillance audits (and in some cases special and follow-up audits) and tri-ennial re-certification audits, to examine the extent to which you continue to address the program criteria. Areas of concern will be reported. So long as we continue to be satisfied there are no outstanding issues that present an unacceptable risk to you, your employees, customers, regulators, Equal Assurance or others, your certification remains valid.

ISO 45001 Certification FAQs
What does ISO 45001 certified mean?
ISO 45001 is an international standard that stipulates the obligations of an organisation when it comes to Occupational Health & Safety (OHS) management systems. Having the certifications means that a business has a framework in place for keeping their workers safe from any potential risks that may arise from the performance of their duties.
What are ISO 45001 requirements?
While ISO 45001 applies to any organisation no matter the size or industry, the standard considers critical factors such as the organisation's unique operating context and worker expectations. The general principles that organisations must comply with, no matter the context, are:
Constant improvement of the worker’s safety in the performance of their duties.
Fulfill all legal obligations and requirements in terms of occupation hazard and safety.
Achieve the internal goals for the OHS management system.
Why is ISO 45001 important?
Worker safety is an essential aspect of keeping an organisation running. ISO 45001 helps keep employees performing at the best of their abilities by minimising work-related risks.
With an ISO 45001 certification, a business can reduce overhead costs by minimising downtime costs due to workplace accidents or illnesses. It may also keep insurance premiums low by the decreased incidence of accidents.
Other than minimising injuries and illnesses, organisations certified to 45001 attract more qualified employees because of the safer working environment. The quality and longevity of workers work hand in hand in improving the organisation's overall performance across the board.
