BS OHSAS 18001:2007 is the internationally accepted standard for occupational health and safety (OHAS) management systems. It outlines requirements for implementing an OHAS compliant system to manage:
- Health and safety risks
- Improve performance, and boost stakeholder confidence.
The standard gives guidance to help you in the designing of a health and safety framework for your organisation which will enable you to pull all of the relevant controls and processes into one management system. OHSAS 18001 is able to be adapted to suit any type or size of organisation to help minimize or even eliminate operational risks and hazards.
OHSAS 18001:2007 is aligned with ISO 14001:2004 (Environmental Management Systems Requirements) and ISO 9001:2008 (Quality Management Systems), which helps you to take an integrating approach to improving business performance using PAS99.
It is supported by OHSAS 18002, which provides guidance on implementing or improving an occupational health and safety (OHAS) management system that meets the requirements of OHSAS 18001.
