OHSAS 18001 is a framework for an occupational health and safety (OHS) management system and is a part of the OHSAS 18000 (sometimes incorrectly identified as ISO 18000) series of standards, along with OHSAS 18002. It can help you put in place the policies, procedures and controls needed for your organization to achieve the best possible working conditions and workplace health and safety, aligned to internationally recognize best practice.


It is legal responsibility for a company to have developed its health and safety policy and arrangements. Many companies who are taken to progress beyond legal compliance and improve the way their and safety system are now turning to OHSAS 18001:2007 as their method of choice and as a mean of demonstrating the system credibility to existing and potential customers and other interested parties.
