WHAT IS
OHSAS 18001?

OHSAS 18001:2007

Prevention is better than aftercare. This is especially true for occupational health and safety. A certified management system in accordance with OHSAS 18001:2007, in short OHSAS 18001, can reduce risks that stem from accidents or overexertion. Protect your staff and your organisation from the consequences of work-related accidents and damage to your staff health, through planned and monitored processes.

CONTENTS OF
OHSAS 18001

Overview

OHSAS 18001 provides a framework within which you can adjust your occupational health and safety processes to align them with your organisational and health goals. Even though, unlike its successor ISO 45001, OHSAS 18001 does not follow the “High-Level-Structure” it is still compatible with other standards, such as ISO 9001, ISO 14001 or ISO 27001, and can be integrated with them to form a management system. 

Show your staff, business partners and clients that occupational health and safety is a priority for your organisation with a CertEuropA Certificate of conformity 18001.
