Helping businesses to optimise their futures!
OHSAS 18001 is an internationally applied British standard for Occupational Health and Safety Management systems. it is universally recognised and widely implemented across a diverse range of industries. Existing to help businesses establish and maintain a robust framework to help them elevate their internal health and safety performance, OHSAS 18001:
- identifies and controls health and safety risks.
- significantly reduces the potential for accidents.
- aids overall legal compliance.
- improves and drives operational performance.
- accommodates diverse geographical, cultural and social conditions.
It encompasses a range of techniques that help to identify hazards and potential causes of accidents within the workplace early and effectively. In addition to this, OHSAS 18001 presents a clear structure to help companies facilitate better in-house training, improve internal communication and reduce absenteeism. Most importantly, it ensures that businesses and organisations everywhere take full account of their legal responsibilities when instituting and maintaining an Occupational Health and Safety Management system, leading to a vastly reduced scope for accidents, fines and prosecutions which, in turn, results in less Health and Safety Executive or local regulator visits and lower insurance premiums.
