Occupational Health and Safety I have a HSE Management System; why should I look at gaining Health, Safety, Environment and Quality Certification?

Below is a brief overview into the benefits of gaining WHS Certification.

Occupational Health and Safety responsibilities are now part of each workers responsibilities and ensuring their safety in the course of their work is essential to business operations.

How do you prove the management and systems you have in place are efficient, effective and your Occupational Health and Safety obligations are being met?

Internationally recognised WHS, environment and quality standards have been created to help standardise and set a benchmark for WHS management systems in all industries. This helps to ensure compliance to relevant legislation is continually being met and ensures appropriate management systems are in place to effectively manage the safety of workers, clients, and contractors. By implementing systems for hazard identification and risk assessments and by effectively controlling and managing these workplace risks, it is possible to effectively create safe systems of work and a safe work environment.

Certification for Occupational Health and Safety

Having certification or working toward the ‘best practice approach’ can not only benefit your business and workers, but also ensure your clients and contactors that you are constantly achieving high safety, health, environment and quality standards.

There are a wide range of benefits associated with to building toward and achieving certification in safety, health, environment and quality standards which includes, but are not limited to:

  • Increased ability to identify and control workplace risk
  • Reductions in workplace injuries, illness and incidents

  • Business management efficiency and increased productivity
  • Reduction in certain environmental costs including, wastes, recycling and consumption
  • Competitive advantage; internationally recognised certification

New Occupational health and safety management system (ISO 45001)

A new occupational health and safety management system requirements is being produced by a Project Committee, ISO PC283.  Scheduled publication date is October 2016.

The Standard will be aligned with ISO 9001 (Quality Management) and ISO 14001 (Environmental Management), which will allow for a simpler and improved combined Health, Safety, Environmental and Quality Management System.  With the launch of the new standard (ISO 45001), you will be allowed a transition period before your certification audits will be conducted using the new standard.

Health and safety management systems are not effective if senior management’s commitment is not there, it quite simply requires leadership, and also provides the framework for developing safety leadership.

BS OHSAS 18001 (AS 4801) is often expected to work separately from other management systems in an organization and this limited approach inevitably causes problems.  Health and Safety must be an integral part of the Business Management System and by using the same structure and core requirements as other management system standards, such as Quality (ISO 9001) and Environment (ISO 14001), the new OHS Management System standard ISO 45001 will bring occupational health and safety directly into top managements responsibility.

 

Contact us for additional information or/and to evaluate your current Management system to determine its readiness.
