OHSAS 18001:2007 (Occupational Health & Safety Management System)

OHSAS 18001:2007 is the International Occupational Health and Safety Management Standard.

It was published in July 2007, superseding OHSAS 18001:1999, and is intended to address occupational health and safety (OH&S) rather than product safety.

OHSAS 18001 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 organisation that wishes to eliminate or minimize risk to employees and other stakeholders who may be exposed to OH&S risks associated with its activities.

Many organizations will have elements required by OHSAS 18001 already in place which can be supplemented to provide a more cohesive management system to meet the requirements of the standard.

Success of an OHSAS management system is based on:

  • Communication of Mission and Vision to interested parties
  • Applicable legislation requirements
  • Coordinating the activities to identify hazard, assess risk and control risk
  • Self assurance for compliance with the policy
  • Programmes to ensure continual improvement
  • Monitoring system performance
  • Facilities at the work place
  • Awareness of employees on the associated risk in all the processes associated with the service.
  • Reduce costs associated with injuries
  • Help to prevent accidents and random events
