What is OHSAS 18001?
OHSAS 18001:2007 is an international standard that is developed by the OHSAS project Group, an association that includes government agencies, certification bodies, national standards, industry associations, and consultants. The British Standards Institution (BSI) currently provides the Secretariat of the OHSAS Project Group.
The aim of OHSAS 18001 is to assist organizations in managing and controlling their health and safety risks and improving their OH&S performance. In response to customer demand for an occupational health and safety management system that can be assessed objectively, certified credibly, and recognized internationally, the Occupational Health and Safety Assessment Series (OHSAS) standards are developed for use by all types of organizations and industries.
OHSAS 18001 has been replaced by ISO 45001. If you are looking to become certified in Occupational Health and Safety, you need to follow the 45001 requirements.
If you’re currently certified to OHSAS 18001 then you will need to move to ISO 45001 because OHSAS 18001 will be withdrawn. We have the skills and knowledge to help you smoothly move to the new standard and get the most from ISO 45001. Here is our list of products for more information.
