    OHSAS 18001

 

OHSAS 18001 is the internationally recognized assessment specification for occupational health and safety management systems.

OHSAS 18001 has been designed to be compatible with ISO 9001 and ISO 14001, to help your organization meet their health and safety obligations in an efficient manner.

The following key areas are addressed by OHSAS 18001

  OHSAS management programme
  Structure and responsibility
  Training, awareness and competence

  Consultation and communication
  Operational control
 
  Emergency, preparedness and response
  Performance measuring, monitoring and improvement

OHSAS 18001 can be adopted by any organization wishing to implement a formal procedure to reduce the risks associated with health and safety in the working environment for employees, customers and the general public

Why have this standard?

Many organizations are implementing an Occupational Health and Safety Management System (OHSMS) as part of their risk management strategy to address changing legislation and protect their workforce.

An OHSMS promotes a safe and healthy working environment by providing a framework that allows your organization to consistently identify and control its health and safety risks, reduce the potential for accidents, aid legislative compliance and improve overall performance.

 

OHSAS 18001 is an assessment specification for Occupational Health and Safety Management Systems. It is developed to help organizations meet their health and safety obligations in an efficient and effective manner.

OHSAS 18001 is the sound solution to the ever increasing challenge facing most organizations due to high injury and illness, lost work days, increasing occupational health and safety regulations, large citations/penalties, rising workers' compensation costs, costly medical claims, worker retention and employee satisfaction.

Much of the improvement noticed in organizations is attributed to employee education and awareness of safety issues and understanding. This increased awareness has been the key factor for OHSAS 18001 organizations saving in legal expenses, building damage, tool and equipment damage, product and material damage and production delays and interruptions.
