The National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) is a community insurance scheme in which the government of Australia directly invests in people with disability. The scheme is given legal effect through the National Disability Insurance Scheme Act 2013 (the Act), and associated enabling legislation.
The Occupational Health and Safety Management System (OH-SMS) scheme establishes consistent requirements for certifying that an organisation effectively manages its OH&S risks, and meets organizational OH&S objectives and relevant legal requirements.
The scheme is based on the Occupational Health and Safety Management System Standard ISO 45001:2018.
Working with asbestos in New Zealand is generally prohibited by the Health and Safety at Work (Asbestos) Regulations 2016. There are exceptions for asbestos related activities permitted by the Asbestos Regulations. Working with asbestos should be performed in a manner that is at least as safe and effective as the practices described in the WorkSafe New Zealand Approved Code of Practice (ACOP) - Management and Removal of Asbestos.
The scheme was developed by the Australian Government Department of Social Services (DSS) and JAS-ANZ and is based on the National Standards for Disability Services (NSDS), which superseded the Disability Advocacy Standards on 1 July 2015. The NSDS enable nationally consistent quality standards to apply for the disability services sector. They focus on person-centred approaches and promote choice and control by people with disability. National Disability Advocacy Agencies must achieve and maintain certification to the NSDS to receive funding from DSS.
The Employer Licence Scheme is a regulatory scheme owned by the Electrical Workers Registration Board (EWRB) (“the Board”).
An employer licence authorises the licence holder to authorise employees (Note 1) to do, or assist in doing, any prescribed electrical work.
The scheme sets and maintains minimum standards for clinics or centres offering assisted reproductive technology, and encourages continuous improvement in the quality of care offered to people accessing fertility treatment in Australia and New Zealand.
The scheme is based on the Code of Practice for Assisted Reproductive Technology Units in Australia; and NZS 8181 – Fertility Services and an associated Fertility Services Audit Workbook in New Zealand. Requirements of the two standards are consistent.
The New Zealand government Electricity (Safety) Regulations 2010 and Gas (Safety) Regulations 2010 require an electricity or gas supply industry organisation to establish a Public Safety Management System (PSMS) to ensure that their energy assets do not pose a significant risk of serious harm to members of the public or damage to their property.
The scheme is based on the following Occupational Health and Safety (OHS) management system standards:
- AS/NZS 4801
- National Self Insurer OHS Audit Tool (NAT)
- OHSAS 18001
- SS 506: Part 1.
An effective OHS management system satisfies OHS regulatory requirements and eliminates or minimises the risk to employees and others who are exposed to the activities of the organisation.
