The recently published Australian Standard AS 4485: 2021 ‘Security for healthcare facilities’ is now available.

This (revised) Standard should be the ‘go to’ for anyone responsible for, or involved in, security for the Healthcare environment.

The Standard is in two parts with parts purchased separately. It is recommended that both parts be used as a single resource.

Part 1 : General Requirements – can be purchased from SAI Global.  

Part 2 : Procedures Guide  – can be purchased from SAI Global.

For more information contact Leon Harris, a member of Standards Australia committee HT-008 which revised the Standard.
