What’s a Safety Management System review?

A Safety Management System (SMS) review is an independent desktop audit of your Work Health and Safety documents completed by a qualified WHS professional. The review will compare your information against legal and industry requirements to ensure your systems are meeting these obligations. You’ll be contacted when the SMS review is complete and you are compliant in the system. If you do not pass the SMS review, we’ll send you a corrective action report detailing the action we can help you take to become compliant. You will not be compliant unless your SMS has been approved.

The documents you’ll be asked to upload in the system depend on your category and may include, but are not limited to:

  • WHS / OHS Policy
  • Environmental Policy
  • Risk Management Procedures
  • Systems of Work process including incident management
  • Drug and Alcohol management
  • Emergency management
  • Training procedures including induction management
  • Sub-Contractor Management (if applicable)
  • Continual improvement processes

What is the SMS Knowledge Base?

The SMS Knowledge Base is a resource, divided into categories, that explains and gives context to the types of documents you’re being asked to supply in your SMS review.

Clicking to open a category will give you more details about what to supply, with examples of the types of policies, reports or charts that you will need to upload as evidence. It’s important to remember that anything you provide must relate specifically to your business, and  incomplete templates will not be accepted.
