SafetyMAP (Safety Management Achievement Program)
SafetyMAP (Safety Management Achievement Program) is an audit tool that provides the means to undertake an independent audit and review of an organisation's health and safety management system.
SafetyMAP helps to establish safer working environments consistent with the requirements of health and safety legislation that will protect people at work by eliminating, or better managing, health and safety hazards.
The audit criteria within SafetyMAP enable an organisation to:
- measure the performance of its health and safety program
- implement a cycle of continuous improvement
- compare its health and safety performance system to a recognised benchmark
- gain recognition for the standards achieved by its management of health and safety.
The audit criteria describe features one might observe in a robust health and safety management system. However an organisation may not require all of these features to have an effective health and safety management system. The system components should be based on organisational needs, circumstances and risk exposure, not an audit tool.

There are a number of standards that guide the conduct of SafetyMAP audits and the issue of SafetyMAP certificates.
