OHSAS 18001:2007 - Occupational health and safety management systems

OHSAS 18001 is the occupational health and safety management standard. It was published in July 2007 and is intended to address occupational health and safety. OHSAS provides a framework to the effective management of OH&S including compliance with the legislation that applies to your activities and identified hazards.

The standard is applicable to any organization that wishes to eliminate or minimize risk to employees and other stakeholders who may be exposed to OH&S risks associated with its activities.

Organizations that implement OHSAS 18001 have a clear management structure with defined authority and responsibility, clear objectives for improvement, with measurable results and a structured approach to risk assessment. This includes the monitoring of health and safety management failures, auditing of performance and review of policies and objectives.
