This online course is designed to provide a comprehensive understanding of AS/NZS 4801 and OHSAS 18001 Occupational Health and Safety management systems.

This course is designed to cater for:

  • People who are required to understand AS/NZS 4801:2001 management systems
  • People who are required to review OHS management systems
  • Managers who receive OHS audit reports
  • People wishing to attain a practical understanding of OHS standard requirements
  • People who develop and implement an OHS management system
  • People wishing to become OHS auditors
  • The program is not industry specific as the underlying principles apply across all areas.


PLEASE NOTE: For the OHS/Safety unit, due to licensing restrictions and availability, a copy of AS/NZS 4801 is provided in lieu of OHSAS 18001. These standards are accompanied by a comparison document outlining the differences between AS/NZS 4801 and OHSAS 18001. The end Exemplar Global qualification remains the same for both regional standards as Exemplar Global OH.

ISO 45001 was released in March 2018.  Exemplar Global has advised that as ISO 45001 is an entirely new international standard it is entirely separate to, and will not supersede, the existing OH qualification offered against AS/NZS 4801 and/or OHSAS 18001 immediately. The older unit written to 18001/4801 will remain until each standard becomes obsolete.

Organizations will determine whether and when they decide to transition across to ISO 45001 or continue to use the existing standards they have in place. As a result, auditors will be required to determine which qualifications they will require to best align with their customer's standards and requirements. This could mean that in some cases it will be necessary for auditors to hold audit qualifications against both AS/NZS 4801 and ISO 45001.

This Exemplar Global - OH competency unit will be superseded in March 2021. We will continue to offer this competency unit until this time.

The courses are broken up into a series of modules and the assessment is completed as part of the learning, step-by-step, module-by-module.

Practice Quizzes

For each module, you view the content and then do the practice quizzes as many times as you like.  These are marked instantly by the learning management system so you know exactly which content you may need to review further.  This gets you confident and prepared to do the final module assessment.

Module Assessment

Once you are confident that you have a thorough understanding of the content you can move on to the module assessment.

The module assessment is the same format as the practice quizzes so you know exactly what you need to do.  You are given three attempts at each assessment, after which it is locked for review by a trainer and assessor to see how we can best help you.  The assessment is then unlocked for another three attempts.  This means you are given the support you need to review content, review results, and consult with assessors.  

We have found that students with all types of learning styles find this an effective way to receive their qualification.
