Description

OHSAS 18000 is an international occupational health and safety management system specification. It comprises two parts, 18001 and 18002 and embraces BS8800 and a number of other publications.  OHSAS 18001 is the internationally recognised standard for occupational health and safety management systems. It gives you a framework to identify, control and reduce the risks associated with health and safety in your workplace.  You can use it to develop your occupational health and safety policy, taking into account specific legal requirements and risks related to your industry.  If you have already carried out audits to assess the effectiveness of your policy, these may not give you the confidence that your health and safety management system meets legal and policy requirements.  To be effective they need to be conducted in line with a recognised standard, and this is what BS OHSAS 18001 can help you achieve.
