AS/NZ ISO 45001 is an International Standard outlining best practice guidance on the contents of an Occupational Health and Safety Management System (OHSMS). It has just replaced AS/NZ 4801.

Having a safety system built to this standard, then implemented and third party certified can give significant benefit to organisations, including;

  • Safer workplace and reduced injury rates,
  • Cheaper Workers Compensation insurance premiums,
  • The ability to tender for large contracts with government e.g. Councils
  • Being seen as an employer of choice by prospective candidates.

A new International Standard ISO 45001 is being adopted around the world to emulate the structure of the quality and environment standards ISO 9001 and ISO 14001.

ISO 45001 has just been adopted by Australia and will replace AS/NZ4801. There is a 2 year transition period to migrate from 4801 to 45001.

Recovery Partners can audit your current safety system and provide a report on any gaps to ensure your system is compliant with 45001. We can then develop a project plan and either provide advice on you implementing that plan or we can do the implementation as well.

Certification is a highly regarded best practice demonstration of a robust safety system.

Key benefits of a fully implemented safety system, proven and certified through a third party auditing process include;

  • Potential reduction in the number of accidents

  • Potential reduction in downtime and associated costs

  • Demonstration of legal and regulatory compliance

  • Demonstration to stakeholders of your commitment to health and safety

  • Demonstration of an innovative and forward thinking approach

  • Increased access to new customers and business partners

  • Better management of health and safety risks now, and in the future

  • Potential reduced insurance costs (public liability and workers compensation).


Having the safety system ready to be certified is a complex process for a large organisation requiring specialised knowledge and experience. Consultants of Recovery Partners are familiar with the process and have demonstrated skill in this area.

The process for certification is outlined below:

  1. Conduct GAP Analysis 

  2. Request quotations for certification 

  3. Prepare systems (action plan from audit)

  4. Refine implementation

  5. Conduct internal audit

  6. Conduct Stage 1 audit (to be completed by Certification body)

  7. Make adjustments / corrective actions
