AS NZS 4801

Occupational Health & Safety Management Systems


Karza provides occupational health and safety management system (AS/NZS 4801) development, implementation, auditing and review services to organisations of all sizes. We are committed to helping you achieve your health and safety objectives and targets.

AS/NZS 4801 was first published in Australia and New Zealand in 2001 as a joint Australian and New Zealand standard which specified the uniform requirements for an occupational health and safety management system (OH&SMS). Today, the AS/NZS 4801 standard is the most common safety management system for Australian and New Zealand businesses. The standard is also utilised in other countries.

At Karza we consider a properly implemented and maintained AS/NZS 4801 structured OH&SMS should be a significant business tool for an organisation; helping to drive safety, evolve organisational culture, improve performance and reduce product and service delivery risks. 

However, all organisations need to consider the AS/NZS 4801 standard (and any certified management systems) with open eyes. Any management system is only functional (and effective) when an organisation is committed to process implementation, maintenance and continually improvement. Often organisations engage a supplier, service provider or contractor naively believing an
AS/NZS 4801 'certification' or 'accreditation' means they can ignore implementing their own contractor and supplier assessment and monitoring programmes. Too often such an approach to risk management leaves a business dangerously exposed to the failures and flaws of a third party.
