AS/NZS: 4801 has now officially been superseded by an international Standard (ISO: 45001 – Occupational health and safety Management Systems)

October 24 2018


If your company currently holds AS/NZS: 4801 Certification, it is recommended to start moving your system across to ISO: 45001 for future certification audits. AS/NZS: 4801 will be phased out over the next 3 years.

If you company is currently working towards certification, it is recommended to consider looking at heading directly towards the new ISO as initial establishment now will be easier than establishing to AS/NZS: 4801 and then transitioning to ISO: 45001.

The ISO: 45001 standard is more aligned to the upcoming Work Health and Safety Act and aligns with the ISO: 9001 (Quality Management) and ISO 14001 (Environmental Management) making it easier for those organisations seeking the trifecta of Certification.
