Certification & Business Control Made Easy

AS4801: Occupational Health & Safety

Although the legislation is called Work Health & Safety (WHS), the certification standard is still Occupational Health & Safety.

As a business, you can’t rely on common sense to ensure the safety of your staff, visitors and customers. It’s your responsibility to inform, consult with, and train staff to guarantee that your work place is free of hazards and risks and that everyone in your organisation is aware of your site safety rules. The good news is that besides improving the safety of your work place, an eQA WHS Management System will address all your business’s certification requirements in a user friendly manual.

Managing your safety hazards with an eQA WHS Management System, which is AS4801 compliant, will reduce the chance of enormous financial burdens of poor WHS performance, such as litigation, worker’s compensation and reduced productivity.  But the most important benefit of our system is guarding you against the human cost of injuries, illnesses and fatalities sustained in the workplace. With a WHS Management System in place, your staff will respect the fact that you have their safety interests as a priority. Knowing that their company cares enough about them to invest in a WHS Management System actively safeguarding them from the devastation of injury, will give your staff and management greater peace of mind.

It’s not just good business sense, it’s also legislation. eQA’s WHS Management Systems will help you achieve the compliance you need for certification, financial security, and business credibility and we will make it simple and user friendly.
