WorkSafe WA will be conducting WorkSafe Plan information sessions in March for Independent assessors seeking WorkSafe Plan Certificates of Achievement for their clients.
The WorkSafe Plan is an assessment process that rates safety and health management systems and directs attention to areas that could be improved. The WorkSafe Plan is not intended to prescribe how to manage safety and health, but to provide a systematic way of measuring how well it is being managed.
WorkSafe offers formal recognition of occupational safety and health systems through our WorkSafe Plan Certificates of Achievement. These may be awarded by WorkSafe to organisations providing they meet certain requirements. One of these requirements is that the WorkSafe Plan assessment is conducted by a qualified independent assessor.
Independent assessors seeking WorkSafe Plan Certificates of Achievement for their clients are required to be well qualified and experienced safety and health professionals. In addition, they MUST:
- have minimum and current certification as a Principal or Lead OSH Auditor for safety and health management systems from RABQSA, IRCA or an equivalent body, and
- undertake an information session on using the WorkSafe Plan
In order to meet criteria 2 prospective assessors can attend the next WorkSafe Plan information session, details of which are below.
