AS/NZS ISO 45001

AS/NZS ISO 45001 Occupational Health and Safety is an internationally recognised standard that focuses on occupational health and safety (OH&S) within the workplace. It offers an OH&S management system that allows certified organisations to manage safe and healthy workspaces.

AS/NZS ISO 45001 has wellbeing and safety at its core to minimise workplace-related injuries and poor health. The leadership-lead approach means AS/NZS ISO 45001 meets moral, legal, ethical and industry-best practice when it comes to an employers’ duty of care over staff.

The certification shares principles with a range of other essential standards within the welding, fabrication and manufacturing space.

Benefits of Certification

There are many benefits associated with a certification to AS/NZS ISO 45001. This certification represents compliance with international standards and a commitment to quality.

What is ISO 45001 Certification?

Australian experts were behind the AS/NZS ISO 45001 certification, which has become the hallmark for OH&S practices in organisations.

The certification is designed to support organisations and individuals to make positive workplace choices around safety, health and wellbeing. It provides a minimum level of workplace OH&S compliance. This increases workplace safety and culture and reduces risks within the company.

The certification is internationally recognised, which means businesses of all sizes can achieve safe work systems and increase their competitiveness on the global scale.
