OHSAS 18001 Certification – Occupational Health & Safety Management System
OHSAS 18001 is an internationally recognised standard for Occupational Health and Safety, providing a framework for organisations to accomplish efficient and effective management of health and safety in the workplace.
Certification to OHSAS 18001 clearly demonstrates that you are committed to Health and Safety compliance requirements, whether you are a service, manufacturing industry, self-employed, sole trader, Limited Company or Multi-Site International Organisation; it is appropriate to all levels of business. It is increasingly seen as the most reliable way of demonstrating compliance in this area in tender documents and pre-qualification questionnaires (PPQs).
A clearly set out management system to recognise and regulate health and safety risks, puts organisations who are OHSAS 18001 certified in a strong position to reduce risks to their employees and external visitors. Continual improvement is essential to maintaining occupational health and safety, and OHSAS 18001 provides organisations with the processes it needs to sustain an improvement cycle.
Benefits of OHSAS 18001 Certification
- Better ability to control health and safety risks
- Rates of accidents and incidents decrease
- Increased business opportunities through reputation growth
- A decrease in insurance premiums
- Demonstrating your organisations commitment to satisfy legal obligations
- Become highly compliant with health and safety regulations
- Have a competitive advantage
OHSAS 18001 Certification also aligns adequately with the structure and requirements of the popular ISO 9001 and ISO 14001; this means that organisations who are already certified to the ISO 9001 and/or ISO 14001 standard can become OHSAS 18001 Certified without difficulty.
Having an Occupational Health and Safety Management system in place, and assessed by a third party certification body, clearly demonstrates to your staff, customers, and suppliers, that you make health and safety in the workplace a priority.
