OHSAS 18001- Health & Safety Certification

Utilising the same approach as the environmental standard, ISO 14001, the aim of the OHSAS 18001 specification is to provide a framework for providing a safe and healthy working environment. In addition, the standard provides guidelines on how to integrate health and safety policies into your overall management system. Key requirements of the standard include:

  • Creation of a Health and Safety Policy
  • Appreciation of your H & S issues and their potential impacts
  • Formalising control systems and monitoring processes
  • Communication of policy and approach to staff and stakeholders
  • Setting objectives and targets
  • Compliance with relevant legislation
Some potential benefits of certification:
  • Shows a clear commitment providing a safe working environment
  • Delivers cost savings by minimising risks to employees
  • Improved operational efficiency
