OHSAS 18001 - now ISO 45001
OHSAS 18001, now ISO 45001, 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 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 to the health and welfare of your workforce and of potential lititgation cases (via improved safety management of health and safety risks)
Competitive advantage and enhanced reputation (via demonstration of commitment to health and safety)
Improved performance (via improved operational efficiency through accident management reduction and reduced downtime) and reduced absenteeism and sickness
Reduced costs (via reduced insurance premiums and compensation/penalties for breached legislation/etc.)
- Legal compliance and improved accident/investigation processes
