OHSAS 18001 – OHS Management
Make health and safety of your employees a priority. Compliance help offers consultation to achieve OHSAS 18001 certification. OHSAS 18001 provides a structured health and safety management system to your business or organization. OHSAS 18001 is universal and can be applied to any workplace regardless of industry.
When your organization is OHSAS 18001 certified, it establishes your commitment to the health and welfare of your management and employees. Your certification provides credibility to external parties, including clients and stakeholders.
While there were earlier standards for OHS management systems, OHSAS first released its 18001 standard in 1999. The current version is OHSAS 18001:2007. In 2018, ISO will supersede this standard with a new ISO standard, ISO 45001.
The OHSAS 18001 OHS management system standard was developed in consultation by a number of international bodies including BSI Group (British standards) to help all types of organizations reduce, and where possible eliminate injury and illness.
OHSAS 18001 management systems primarily take a preventative approach to occupational health and safety by:
- Identifying hazards applicable to the organizations operations
- Determining the level of risk associated with the hazard
- Identifying controls including monitoring and measuring methods where appropriate to help minimize the identified risk
- Implementing the controls and monitoring compliance with and effectiveness of the controls
- Taking corrective action in case of nonconformance, injury, or illness
- Learning from non-conformances and incidents and determining appropriate action to help the organization prevent further incidents.
Furthermore, there is a focus on:
- Consultation and communication
- Legal compliance
- Training and competency.
As with ISO 9001 and ISO 14001, it is good management practice to develop written safety policies and procedures. Written policies and procedures are effective for helping an organization plan, communicate, check, enforce, and continually improve so that an organization is better able ensure the health and safety of its employees and others affected by its operations.
If understood and implemented correctly, an OHSAS 18001 safety management system could easily pay for itself financially. Consider the cost of injury, illness, legalities, negative press, and stress that come from poor health and safety, and consider the benefit that comes from taking a planned and informed approach to safety management
Achieving certification to OHSAS 18001 demonstrates to others your commitment to safety and can be effectively used in marketing campaigns.
