Health & Safety Management OHSAS 18001

Health & Safety Management OHSAS 18001

Certification to OHS 18001 is a key tool in organisations managing their health & safety risks. Certification demonstrates the seriousness with which an employer takes its health & safety responsibility, making a strong and clear statement to employees and other key stakeholders how important this is to the organisation.

Later in 2016, OHS 18001 will migrate to the new ISO Occupational Health & Safety management system standard, ISO 45001.

LRQA describe how OHSAS 18001 is a standard used for an occupational health and safety management system, which enables an organisation to control its risks and improve its performance in this area.  The standard provides a systematic approach to identifying hazards, and then either eliminates or reducing the risks of the hazards.
