ISO 45001OH&S Management Systems
“Assisting you to make the process work”
The pressure to meet stringent safe work requirements placed upon companies by government regulators has never been greater. As regulators increase their focus on safe work systems and compliance monitoring, Industry requires greater structure and transparency in the management of employee health and safety. The Health and Safety Standards are not designed to tell you how to manage your business; rather they are tools you can use to improve the efficiency of your business systems and health and safety performance.
The pressure to meet stringent safe work requirements placed upon companies by government regulators has never been greater. As regulators increase their focus on safe work systems and compliance monitoring, Industry requires greater structure and transparency in the management of employee health and safety.
Sound health and safety management relates to identification of potential risks and how employees interact with the risk, management of these issues and measurement of the success of your management programs. The internationally recognised ISO 45001 or the previous OHSAS 18001 series of Standards are good starting points to assist companies to identify the areas within their operations where they can improve their health and safety performance. These Standards are designed for companies with either domestic only or domestic and foreign operations, as they are recognised on a worldwide basis.
- It should be noted, that now ISO 45001 has been released, OHSAS 18001 will be phased out. This transition will be completed in March 2021 and OHSAS 18001 will be withdrawn at this time.
How will your business benefit from certification to this Standard?
- Certification to a recognised third party Standard such as ISO 45001 is increasingly becoming a condition of contract within Industry. More and more companies require suppliers to have this certification to demonstrate strong health and safety management within their operations.
- The ISO 45001 system can be utilised within your business to improve efficiency and reduce costs by standardising processes and procedures saving your staff time and your business money.
- Management systems certification can be used as a competitive advantage particularly in the tender process leading to increased tender success and increased business opportunities. Certification against International OHS Standards is widely recognised as minimum requirements for exporters and Defence contractors.
- It is becoming increasingly more difficult to comply with the ever expanding requirement for companies to maximise their product quality, whilst minimising their environmental footprint as well as working safer to protect their employees.
- To overcome these issues, QCS(E) offers an Integrated Systems Program (ISP). This program allows your company to meet the requirements of the combined Quality, Environment and Occupational Health and Safety related issues seen as critical by your customers.
- QCS(E) uses auditors who hold accreditation to all three programs to conduct the ISP audits. This significantly reduces your audit cost because one auditor does all the work rather than using three separate auditors. It also allows your staff to develop a strong working relationship with a single individual leading to enhanced service provision and increased benefits for your company.

Stage 2 Audit
This is the formal certification audit. The QCS(E) auditor will assess implementation of the system within your business and compliance with the requirements of your chosen Standard. Once this audit has been completed successfully, QCS(E) will issue a certificate of registration to you.
