Occupational Health and Safety Management systems certification to OHSAS 18001 is a strong sign of your organization’s commitment to your employees’ health and safety.

OHSAS 18001 health and safety management provides a process driven approach to controlling and monitoring risks that can arise from the company’s day to day activities.
This system also helps business owners and managers be more aware of their legal and regulatory accountabilities and assist them in identifying and control the associated risks.
The OHSAS 18001 standard is internationally accepted as a method of assessing and auditing occupational health and safety management systems. Developed by leading trade and international standards bodies, it provides a framework for organizations to instigate proper and effective management of health and safety in the workplace.
By having a clearly defined management system in place to identify and control health and safety risks, organizations are able to minimize risks to their workforce and visitors or external contractors on their premises. The standard will enable organizations to put in place processes for continually reviewing and improving occupational health and safety.
Many organizations implement an Occupational Health and Safety Management System (OHSMS) as a fundamental part of their risk management strategy to address changing legislation and protect their workforce and other persons working under their control.
OHSAS 18001 certification enables organizations to manage operational health and safety risks and improve performance.
