This Standard was prepared by forest managers and forestry contracting businesses in South Australia and Victoria to establish a single framework for audits and reviews of an organisation’s work health and safety and Chain of Responsibility management systems, and compliance with Federal and State legislations. The most recent version aims to ensure this framework conforms with the requirements of the international standard for Occupational health and safety management systems (ISO 45001:2018)
It is applicable to all type and sizes of businesses with operations in South Australia and Victoria, and could be used in other jurisdictions.
