OHSAS 18001 Health & Safety Standard Certification Advisory Service

The management of Health and Safety is becoming a growing priority in the UK and Internationally: recent figures from the Health and Safety Executive indicate that fatalities are falling, there is constant pressure to continue this trend.

From the point of view of your own business, quite apart from the human cost involved, such incidents create bad publicity and subsequent loss of reputation, so it makes sound business sense to establish a safety management system.

What is Occupational Health and Safety Management (OHSAS) 18001:2007

BS OHSAS 18001 is intended to help businesses control occupational Health and Safety risks.

It was developed in response to a widespread demand for a recognised standard of certification, and actually works well with the BS EN ISO 14001 Environment Management System and BS EN ISO 9001 Quality standards.

It is a framework that allows a business to consistently identify and control its Health and Safety risks, reduce the potential for accidents and legal issues, and improve overall performance.

British Standard OHSAS 18001:2007 is a well regarded stamp of approval that’s well worth having, not least because it is a clear demonstration of your commitment to health and safety, which can in turn help you to win new business.
