Safety Management Systems

Safety management systems

A SMS system will deliver a safer work place by engaging staff in safety issues and having improvement objectives that focus on the OHS risks of the organisation.   A SMS will also provide a framework for top management to comply with their legal obligations.

Changes are on the way with the new ISO 45001 safety system standard expected to be relased later in 2016.  The new standard will have a similar high level structure to the ISO 9001 and ISO 14001.  We can keep you informed of the changes as they are released.


Why have an ISO 80001 or AS 4801 safety management system?

It makes good business sense to operate your business using the framework of either ISO 18001 or AS 4801.
