What types of businesses will benefit from Certification to the AS/NZS 4801:2001 Standard?

All businesses can benefit from implementation of the Standard, at the level appropriate to their organisational activities.

Certification to the Standard takes it to the next level – it proves that your business is managed efficiently and responsibly and that a reliable service can be provided without excessive downtime caused by work-related incidents, accidents, injuries or illnesses.

Certification:

  • Demonstrates your commitment to health and safety to all stakeholders;
  • Is sometimes the only point of difference against your closest competition when bidding for work; and
  • Can be a contractual requirement imposed by your client/s.

How the Certification Process Works

Firstly, we’ll work with you to determine exactly which Standards and Certifications are right for your business, what you want to achieve out of the process for your business, and identify any deadlines you need to achieve Certifications by. This is your chance to get all your questions answered!

Then we’ll go through with you what you already have in place and how effective you think it is, and what you’d like to see change. Depending on what you already have, the next step might be a Gap Analysis against the requirements of the Standard – this will give us a to-do list of what needs to be done before commencing the formal Certification process.

When it’s time for your Certification Audit, it’s conducted in two stages:

Stage 1 (Readiness Review) is a full review of your business processes and documented information to ensure all requirements of the Standard (relevant to your business) have been addressed.
Stage 2 (Certification Audit) is an assessment conducted at your office (and project sites, if applicable) to ensure that you actually do what your processes and documented information say you do.
All Certifications run on a three-year cycle, usually with audits 12 months apart, so, this initial audit process is then followed by:

Year 2: Surveillance Audit
Year 3: Surveillance Audit

Then we start again with a Triennial Audit, followed by two annual Surveillance Audits, and the cycle continues…
