What is a Safety Management System?

According to AS/NZS 4801: 2001 Occupational Health & Safety Management Systems, Specification with guidance for use states: A Safety Management System is part of the overall management system which includes organisational structure, planning activities, responsibilities, practices, procedures, processes and resources for developing, implementing, achieving, reviewing and maintaining your business OHS policy, and so managing the risks associated with the business of the organisation”.

What is an OHS Policy?

The OHS Policy is a statement by the company that sets out how the business aims to achieve its safety objectives and targets. As we know, no two people are the same and this extends to business.
