Managing Risk in the Disability Sector
NZS 8134 is the generic quality and risk management standard for the New Zealand health and disability sector. NZS 8134 is used by a wide range of services including hospitals and residential care. As a Designated Auditing Agency, Q-Audit audits providers against NZS 8134 for certification for the purposes of the Health and Disability Services (Safety) Act. Other providers who do not fall under the safety regime also use NZS 8134 as a certification standard to showcase their services and to meet any funder requirements. The standard is suitable for provider organisations that deliver a variety of health and disability care services.
