[hero_unit text=”OHSAS 18001 Is the International Standard for the creation on an effective health and safety management system that allows organisations to address changing health and safety legislation and protect employees and contractors, working under its auspices.” btn_style=”default” btn_size=”normal” target=”_self”]


OHSAS 18001 seeks to promote and foster a safe and healthy working environment. This is established by creating an OH&S management system that requires the organization to identify its key health and safety ‘risks’, reduce those risks, set OH&S objectives and targets, comply with legislation and partake in effective employee consultation and seek to measure and enhance health and safety performance.

OHSAS 18001 is applicable to any organisation wishing to uphold best practice arrangements for Occupational Health and Safety.   By adopting OHSAS 18001 an organization will demonstrate to its customers and stakeholders its commitment to achieving the rigorous demands detailed within this Standard.
