Occupational Health and Safety Management System

OHSAS 18001   

Many organisations are now looking at implementing the Occupational Health and Safety Management System (OHSAS 18001). It is a recognised specification that structures the implementation of an effective Health & Safety management system. This overview takes a brief look at the reasons why certification may be appropriate for your company.

What is OHSAS 18001?

OHSAS 18001 is the latest certification specification for Occupational Health and Safety Management Systems. It is based on already published criteria such as BS 8800 and the Management Regulations 1992. OHSAS 18001 is an audit/certification specification, not a legislative requirement or a guide to implementation.


  • Economic advantages:
    • Energy saving
    • Higher productivity and working quality
    • Minimising of fees and penalties in occupational health and safety performance

    • Improvement of working conditions for workers
    • Increasing of satisfaction and loyalty of workers

Firstly, evaluate the Health and Safety needs of your staff and visitors. Then identify the boundaries of your Health and Safety system and document your procedures for meeting the requirements of OHSAS 18001. Ensure these procedures are fully implemented, then audit and review them.

There are several common elements between these three systems, such as management review, document control, corrective action and the requirement for trained personnel. These can be integrated into a single, joint system or a combination of any of the above. Certification and Audit of joint systems is available and may be the best method for some companies.
