Gap Analysis

A gap analysis is your first step in implementing a formal health and safety management system and achieving certification to ISO 45001. It is a baseline evaluation of your current practices and performance, and identifies the main gaps against the requirements of the standard.

Our health and safety experts can carry out a gap analysis of your current management system and draft recommendations for improving your health and safety performance, as well as helping you meet the requirements of the ISO 45001 standard.

Our team can also guide new organisations / green field sites with no baseline health and safety management system  to successfully implement ISO 45001: 2018 .    

H&S Legislation and Legal Compliance Assessment

The Antaris team can help you to:

  • Interpret the legislative implications for your business
  • Assess your compliance with legislative and regulatory requirements

Development of Health and Safety Documentation

We will assist you in drafting any health and safety documentation, including:

  • OH&S Policy
  • Context – defining internal and external influences  using PESTLE and SWOT 
  • Risk and opportunities matrix
  • Risk assessment reports
  • Health and safety manual
  • Health and safety controlled procedures, work instructions and process maps. 
  • Safety statement
  • Emergency Response Procedures
  • Auditing procedures 

Risk and Opportunity Assessments

Our risk and opportunity assessments can be either electronic or paper-based, depending on your preference.

During the process, one of our assessors will look at your activities, procedures and operations and review your existing risk assessments. We’ll provide you with:

  • Classification of work activities
  • Identification of hazards
  • Determination of risk associated with each hazard

Using these findings, we can help you to define appropriate and efficient risk control strategies.

Pre-Assessment and Internal Health and Safety Audits

Our highly skilled and experienced auditors can get you ready for the official certification body audits with a pre-assessment audit.

Not only does this provide a sanity check during a stressful time, it helps to identify any issues your organisation needs to address prior to the certification audit. We regularly assist organisations that do not have the internal resources or expertise to carry out their own audits.

We can also help your company meet the internal health and safety audit requirements of ISO 45001.
