How businesses have benefitted from OHSAS 18001
"As a young business we were daunted by the prospect of becoming ISO 27001 accredited so we took the decision to seek consultancy from QMS, prior to an audit, and it was the best decision we could have made. The 3 days that we spent with your consultant (Brett) was great. He was enthusiastic, engaging, genuinely interested in our business, and he provided a great deal of insight into how we can evolve our processes to ensure we are operating as securely as possible. We have implemented a lot of his suggestions already and can see the benefits. We would not hesitate is using QMS again in the future for other accreditations."Ben Hancock, Managing Director
At all stages QMS were very informative and supporting in understanding our requirements.Tony Horns, Director
How to get OHSAS 18001
Our OHSAS 18001 Consultants will make the process of gaining OHSAS 18001 certification as straightforward as possible for you. This includes helping your business make any necessary improvements to its processes.
Our 3-stage certification process ensures you get the help you need at every step, we can even create your OHSAS 18001 Manual for you, clearly defining your documented information, saving you time and money.
Once you have achieved certification, the Standard requires that an external audit is conducted each year to verify your contained compliance with its requirements. This helps to ensure your business continues to deliver the highest standards in health and safety management. Your first audit will take place one year after you receive your OHSAS 18001 certificate.
A QMS Consultant will visit your Organisation to review and document your current processes and procedures, highlighting any areas that do not meet the requirements of the Standard.
Now it's time to make sure any required process or procedural changes are made, as highlighted in the Review. QMS can provide templates to assist you in doing this.
An Auditor must now visit your Organisation to check that the documented processes are being followed and that the necessary changes have been made. Once they are satisfied, you will be awarded your certification.
