OH&S Management System Certification
Sci Qual International offers AS/NZS 4801 and OHSAS 18001.
AS/NZS 4801 is the Australian and New Zealand Standard for Work, Health and Safety Management Systems.
OHSAS 18001:2007 is an international safety framework used by many organisations. These Standards require the main components of Work, Health and Safety to be implemented into an organisation's activities to ensure all Work, Health and Safety issues are effectively managed.
Both standards specify requirements for a Work, Health and Safety management system to enable an organisation to formulate policy and objectives that take into account legislative requirements and information about hazards or risks. The requirements apply to those hazards or risks over which the organisation may exert control and over which it can be expected to have an influence. The standards do not specify WHS performance outcomes.
A new safety standard is expected to be released in the first quarter of 2018. This will be the first safety standard under the ISO banner and will be called ISO 45001. It will follow the same high level structure as ISO 9001 and ISO 14001, which will make it easier to integrate management systems for certification.
If you are already certified to AS/NZS or OHSAS 18001 there will be a 3 year transition to the new standard. We will provide more information on this as it becomes available.

1st & 2nd Party Audits
In addition to 3rd party certification, Sci Qual International can offer 1st & 2nd party audits.
1st Party Audits
As long as you are not certified by Sci Qual International we can conduct internal audits of your management system to assist you in meeting your compliance requirements under a range of standards. This offers the advantage of an experienced auditor confirming that your internal procedures are being followed and that you are applying a continuous improvement and risk based approach.
Note: If you are certified by Sci Qual International we cannot conduct your internal audits as this would represent a conflict of interest under our JAS-ANZ accreditation.
2nd Party Audits
Sci Qual International can conduct second party audits to assess the performance of your suppliers or compliance with contract requirements etc. We have auditors experienced in QMS, EMS, OHS and Food safety certification.
