Why ISO 45001?

A safe and healthy workplace is a productive workplace. Our ISO 45001 Assurance Program provides a sound basis for any organisation looking to establish confidence in their ability to consistently meet relevant OH&S requirements, and for improving OH&S performance. It can be integrated into, any of our other assurance programs.

Benefits of ISO 45001 Certification

  • Stakeholder Involvement - Building a ISO 45001 certified operational health and safety management system necessitates the participation of internal stakeholders at all levels of organisation. 

  • Raise Employee Morale - ISO 45001 tells your current and prospective employees that your business is taking active steps to ensure their safety in the workplace.

  • Improve your Bottom Line - ISO 45001 certification improves productivity by creating a system that efficiently mitigates the risks and costs associated with workplace safety.

  • Above & Beyond WHS Standards - With an ISO 45001 certification, your company not only complies with, but surpasses Work Health and Safety (WHS) legal requirements.

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.
