BS OHSAS 18001:2007 – Occupational Health & Safety Management System

BS OHSAS 18001 is the internationally recognised standard for occupational health and safety management systems. It gives you a framework to identify, control and reduce the risks associated with health and safety in your workplace.


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.


You can use it to develop your occupational health and safety policy, taking into account specific legal requirements and risks related to your industry.


If you have already carried out audits to assess the effectiveness of your policy, these may not give you the confidence that your health and safety management system meets legal and policy requirements. To be effective they need to be conducted in line with a recognised standard, and this is what BS OHSAS 18001 can help you achieve.
