This is an international occupational health and safety management system specification. It comprises two parts, 18001 and 18002 and embraces BS8800 and a number of other publications.
This is a global management system on occupational health and safety. The standard is not an ISO standard, but has many components in common with ISO 9001 (quality) and ISO 14001 (environment).
This is the "Occupational Health and Safety Management Systems Specification". It was developed in response to urgent demand for a recognized standard against which occupational safety management systems can be assessed.
This provides guidelines for the implementation of OHSAS 18001. It explains the requirements of this and how to work towards implementation/registration. Implementation of the standards is intended to provide multiple benefits. These include:
- Reduced risk (via improved safety management of health and safety risks)
- Competitive advantage (via demonstration of commitment to health and safety)
- Improved performance (via improved operational efficiency through accident management reduction and reduced downtime)
- Reduced costs (via reduced insurance premiums and compensation/penalties for breached legislation/etc)
