WHAT IS THE BS OHSAS 18001 CERTIFICATION?
BS OHSAS 18001:2007 (Occupational Health and Safety Assessment Series) was published at the end of July 2007 and is an internationally recognised standard that defines the most important requirements and evaluation criteria for occupational safety measures. Certification according to the standard helps companies to identify and monitor all relevant health and safety risks that may arise during normal and abnormal operations.
It also helps you to introduce and apply your management system. The structure of BS OHSAS 18001 has been largely aligned with ISO 9001 and ISO 14001, with BS OHSAS 18001 focusing on personal protection and ISO 14001 on environmental protection. The elementary working basis of both existing standards is a risk and hazard analysis.
