OHSAS 18001 is the internationally recognised standard for Occupational Health and Safety Management Systems. By implementing its best-practice processes, you can help your company identify and control its health and safety risks.
Achieving OHSAS 18001 certification demonstrates that your company is committed to reducing accidents, complying with the law and improving its overall health and safety performance. This can lead to increased employee, customer and stakeholder confidence in your management systems. It can also enhance your company's brand and give you a competitive advantage.
Every business is faced with the challenge of meeting health and safety obligations. OHSAS 18001 ensures your organisation, whatever its size or sector, meets those legal obligations, has the appropriate techniques in place to identify OH&S risks and makes workplace health and safety a priority.
Here are some benefits of using the OHSAS 18001 framework:
Professional, Helpful and Supportive[The Consultant] was excellent. He turned up ahead of time and promptly began the audit. After introducing himself and QMS' associated services he set out a clear agenda for the day and began the audit process in a calm and ordered manner making all of our Senior Management Team and H&S committee relaxed about the Audit. He then explained in detailed where our system worked well, how it could be improved and how these points related to the ISO 45001 standard. Offered his advice where needed and was genuinely one of the best auditors we'd received at the office. Great service
Very professional audit by a helpful and friendly auditor.One and a half days auditing resulted in attaining the 2015 standards for ISO 9001 and ISO 14001 and moving to the new health and safety standard ISO 45001. The auditor was helpful friendly and very professional. I have an apprentice who is learning my job so that he can take over when I eventually retire. [The Auditor] explained everything to him, what he was looking for and why and nothing seemed too much trouble. I will be requesting that we can have [him] again to undertake our audits next year as everything went very smoothly and we will definitely be recommending QMS to others based on this experience.
At QMS we are constantly updating our approach and process to meet the latest changes in how OHSAS 18001 works.
