OHSAS 18001

BS OHSAS 18001 is a framework for an occupational health and safety management system.

It can help you put in place policies, procedures and controls needed for your organisation to achieve its best possible working conditions.

If you’re concerned with keeping your customers, your colleagues and your operation safe, then getting on board with these should be high on your agenda.

What is BS OHSAS 18001?

BS OHSAS 18001 lays out the minimum requirements for occupational health and safety best practice; it’s a framework for how to put together an effective and efficient occupational health and safety management system. Using it is the best way to find out which procedures, policies and controls are necessary for you to implement in order to achieve good working conditions for your staff, in line with the internationally recognised standard.

It applies to SMEs as well as larger companies, and we can work with you in order to meet the specific health and safety challenges that your business faces, whatever size it may happen to be.

In which ways could my business benefit from implementing BS OHSAS 18001?

In creating good working conditions in workplaces across your business, you can help to improve staff morale – and potentially productivity, too. Staff will be happier to stick with a business they know is looking out for them when it comes to working conditions.

BS OHSAS 18001 will also help you to identify the biggest hazards in your workplace(s) and allow you to work towards putting controls in place to manage them, so that staff feel, and are, safe. Reducing accidents in the workplace will cut the costs associated with injury or illness as well as downtime, foster goodwill among colleagues and engage and motivate them to work harder.

Finally, customers, suppliers and other contacts will be happier to work with a business which is able to demonstrate compliance with the standard to a high level.
