OHSAS 18001 is the "Occupational Health and Safety Management Systems Specification". It was developed in response to urgent demand for a recognized standard against which occupational safety management systems can be assessed. It is compatible with ISO 9001 and ISO 14001.
It covers issues such as planning for hazard identification, risk assessment/control, OHS management, awareness and competence, training, communication, emergency preparedness and response, performance measuring and improvement.
The need for internationally recognized standards for occupational health and safety management has long been apparent. These two standards have emerged to fill this void, and are being adopted across the globe.
Implementation of the standards is intended to provide multiple benefits. These include:
Reduced risk (via improved safety management of health and safety risks)
Competitive advantage (via demonstration of commitment to health and safety)
Improved performance (via improved operational efficiency through accident management reduction and reduced downtime)
Reduced costs (via reduced insurance premiums and compensation/penalties for breached legislation/etc.)
