OHSAS 18001 (Occupational Health and Safety as a Quality Standard)

Meet your business and health and safety needs
OHSAS 18001 is the internationally recognized standard for occupational health and safety management systems. Although it is not yet an “ISO” standard, and is technically a “Specification”, it is being used by multinational corporations in various industries to incorporate management systems into their existing safety and health programs.
OHSAS 18001 requires a systematic approach to accidents, incidences, near misses and industrial hygiene. It includes setting goals, tracking programs, communicating these to the employees, involving senior management and performing internal audits to concur that the occupational health and safety management system is working as planned.
OHSAS 18001 certification is suitable for any business – including yours – if you want to reduce health and safety risks for your employees, visitors and customers in the long term. The Occupational Health and Safety Assessment Series (OHSAS 18001) is the best-known occupational safety management system. It is recognised in over 80 countries. Certification demonstrates that the health and safety of your employees has top priority in your company.
