OHSAS 18001 - Health & Safety Management Systems
OHSAS 18001 is a standard used to help manage risk to reduce accidents, comply with legislation and improve performance.
Organisations are coming under increasing commercial and regulatory pressures to control risk from their operations. Most organisations now ensure they comply with the appropriate legislation, with many realising the benefits a formalised approach to health and safety management systems can bring.
The OHSAS 18001 standard was developed to bridge the gap where no international standard exists for occupational health & safety. Despite not being an ISO standard, OHSAS 18001 has been designed to be compatible with ISO 9001 & ISO 14001, thus helping organisations to achieve an integrated management system.
- The health and safety of your employees
- The need to meet relevant legislation
- The need to maintain a good business reputation
There are three compelling reasons why you should take health and safety management seriously. Combined with the adverse publicity and subsequent loss of reputation arising from health and safety incidents, it makes good commercial sense to formalise any existing health and safety management system and opt for independent third-party certification to the occupational health and safety standard OHSAS 18001.
