Many organizations implement a system for managing health and safety at work (OHSMS) as part of its risk management strategy to adapt to legislative changes and protect their workforce. A system of managing health and safety at ork (OHSMS) promotes safe and healthy working environments by providing a framework that allows the organization to consistently identify and control its health and safety risks, reduce the potential for accidents, support law enforcement and improve overall performance.
OHSAS 18001 is the internationally recognized assessment standard for management systems of health and safety at work. A selection of leading trade bodies, international organizations and certification standards are designed to cover the gaps where there is no international standard certified by an independent third party.
OHSAS 18001 is designed to be compatible with ISO 9001 and ISO 14001 in order to help organizations to comply effectively with their obligations relating to health and safety.
OHSAS 18001 includes the following key areas:
- Planning to identify, assess and control risks
- OHSAS Management Program
- Structure and responsibility
- Training, awareness and competence
- Consulting and Communication
- Operating Control
- Emergency preparedness and response
- Measuring, monitoring and performance improvement
Any organization wishing to implement a formal procedure to reduce the risks associated with health and safety in the work environment for employees, customers and the general public can adopt the standard OHSAS 18001.
