The OHSAS 18001 standard relates expressly to the management of Health & Safety in the workplace. It is structured to integrate seamlessly with other standards such as ISO 9001 and ISO 14001.
Because these days no organisation is exempt from Health & Safety legislation, it doesn’t matter what size your own business is, it will almost certainly benefit from implementing the range of disciplines that the OHSAS 18001 standard imposes. By incorporating these standards into your business you will greatly reduce the potential for accidents, help to control risks, improve legislative compliance and enhance your overall Health & Safety performance. At the same time, the sensible procedures and good practice that OHSAS 18001 integrates into your operation will help you avoid litigation, fines, penalties and even imprisonment. Your performance and cost-effectiveness will improve and with more and more companies now requiring proof that their suppliers operate in a safe and competent manner, OHSAS 18001 can afford you an invaluable competitive edge.
