WorkSafe Plan - Audits and assessments of occupational safety and health management systems

This page is for: 
Employer

The WorkSafe Plan is an audit and assessment process that can be used to rate safety and health management systems. It can be used for auditing to provide information and ratings on the extent to which an organisation has implemented a systematic approach to the management of safety and health and the extent to which an organisation is complying with some of the legislative requirements.

Anybody may use the WorkSafe Plan to assess their safety and health system or see how one operates. However, if you require a formal assessment of your occupational safety and health system a competent person should undertake the assessment. This is a person who has undertaken training in the audit of safety and health management systems.

If you would like formal recognition of your occupational safety and health system, WorkSafe Plan Certificates of Achievement may be awarded by WorkSafe to organisations providing they meet certain requirements. In these cases assessments must be undertaken by an independent assessor (see below).  Workplaces must also be within the jurisdiction of the Occupational Safety and Health Act 1984 to be eligible that is, those business covered under the Mines Safety Inspection Act 1994, the Commonwealth legislation, or in other states or territories are ineligible.
