National Self-Insurer OHS Management System (NAT)

The NAT defines the criteria that relevant regulators will use within their jurisdictions to assess a Self Insurer Audit.

The NAT audit tool has been designed to assist those conducting audits using the NAT to understand and apply the audit criteria in a consistent manner. The NAT may also be used by self-insurers when undertaking self-audits to help them prepare and monitor their performance against the same criteria used by the regulators.
