OHSAS 18001

OHSAS 18001 Consulting

In these times of rising awareness of the importance of occupational health and safety, as well as increasingly strict legislation governing those areas, many organizations want to improve their OH&S practices and head off OH&S issues. Intermittent “reviews” or “audits,” conducted on an annual or semi-annual basis, can provide a snapshot assessment of an organization’s legal and policy compliance. However, these reviews are not sufficient to provide assurance that an organization will continue to meet its legal and policy obligations. To get that kind of guarantee, companies need a structured OH&S management system that works within their organization every day, not just a few times a year.

Designed by the British Standards Institution to provide uniform health and safety protections for workers worldwide, OHSAS 18001:2007 provides guidelines to identify and control health and safety risks, reduce the potential for accidents, aid legislative compliance, and improve overall productivity within the context of a management system. An OHSAS 18001 management system can help your organization balance good OH&S practices with pressing socio-economic needs in a way that works for your organization and minimizes your legal and policy liability.
