Forward-thinking organisations that value employees understand the need to identify and control health and safety hazards in the workplace. Injuries or illnesses at work can be costly to your company in terms of lost productivity, medical expenses and reputational damage. In addition, there are strict legal requirements for occupational health and safety (OH&S) in every region where your business operates. For all these reasons, you need to manage and safeguard your human resources while clearly communicating your OH&S commitments to all stakeholders.
The OHSAS 18001 Certification Scheme is an OH&S standard. It is designed to enable organisations to control risks and improve performance in the area of OH&S. OHSAS 18001 places a proactive and preventative emphasis on risk-control factors by identifying and assessing the likelihood and severity of hazards in the workplace.
OHSAS 18001 is an essential management system for your business, along with quality, environment and other management systems. It will help your company reduce direct and indirect costs while preventing injuries in the workplace. By conforming to OHSAS 18001, your company safeguards its stakeholders – employees, suppliers and customers – from risk. Third-party certification will credibly demonstrate your organisation’s implementation of a comprehensive system for ensuring health and safety in the workplace.
