Work Health and Safety (WHS/OHS)

Work Health & Safety Management Systems - OHSMS & AS 4801

Why have a WHS/OHS Management System?

The implementation of a formalised and structured occupational health, safety, and welfare system assisted by EQAS will provide a framework for making your workplace a safe and healthy place. The system will not only help you comply with all related legislative requirements, but will develop continuous improvements to your operation by reducing the frequency of illness and injuries and the costs associated with loss of productivity. A systematic approach to safety is better than just letting it happen, and...........

  • Introduces workplace safety systems and procedures that help achieve a safe and healthy workplace

  • Enables compliance with the necessary legislative requirements

  • Reduces costs associated with workplace injury and illness

  • Ensure health and safety obligations are managed in an orderly fashion

  • Enables certification to specific WHS/OHS accreditation requirements such as Australian Standard AS4801, Australian Government Building and Construction WHS/OHS Accreditation Scheme, or "Work Cover Exempt Employer" standards

How does EQAS help?

  • We will evaluate and report on your current safety system 

  • We will facilitate the establishment and development of an organisation's safety program steering committee, and train members in its operation

  • We will provide safety system awareness training for all selected employees

  • We will develop and write your safety manual in consultation with your people, including policies and procedures in accordance with the Work Health and Safety (WHS/OHS) legislative requirements

  • We will provide a structured safety auditor training program to enable selected employees to identify, assess, and control hazards

  • We make sure that safety procedures and work instructions are readily understood and accepted by staff

  • We assist you to comply with necessary legislative requirements, or any safety accreditation you choose to subscribe to, or any customer pre-qualification safety requirement.

Our training and implementation program tells everyone in your organisation what their responsibilities are, and ensures that your health and safety obligations are managed in an orderly fashion. A Work Health and Safety (WHS/OHS) System is a basic and essential part of good management practice, and is much more effective than just letting it happen!
