OHSAS 18001:2007 - OCCUPATIONAL HEALTH AND SAFETY MANAGEMENT SYSTEM (OH&S)

The OHSAS 18001:2007 is the international Occupational Health and Safety Management System (OH&S) standard. Establishing an OH&S is the best way to demonstrate your organization’s Occupational Health and Safety awareness and commitment to your employees, customers, community and statutory and regulatory bodies. These standards are applicable to companies of any size, but are especially relevant to companies with a large work force, manual and heavy work tasks, and/or high risk work environments. Targeting the health and safety of employees proves that you are actively working to ensure that your operations are safe both for your employees and the surrounding environment.

Benefits of OHSAS 18001:2007

The benefits of implementing a systematic and effective OHSAS management system include the following:

  • Reducing the number of personnel injuries through prevention and control of workplace hazards.
  • Reducing the risk of major accidents.
  • Ensuring a well-qualified and enthusiastic workforce by fulfillment of the increasing expectations of your employees.
  • Reducing the material loss caused by accidents and in production interruptions.
  • Reducing insurance costs as well as reducing costs due to absence of employees.
  • Serving the possibility for an integrated management system including quality, environment and health and safety.
  • Ensuring that appropriate legislation is addressed and acted upon.
  • Meeting the increasing importance of OH&S for public image.

OHSAS 18001 has been developed to be compatible with ISO 9001 and ISO 14001 to allow for easy integration. Legislative and regulatory commitment and continual improvement are two important aspects of OHSAS 18001.
