Occupational health and safety management systems. Guidelines for the implementation of OHSAS 18001:2007

Status : Current   Published : November 2008



Organizations of all kinds are increasingly concerned with achieving and demonstrating sound occupational health and safety (OH&S) performance. Organizations want to control their OH&S risks, consistent with their OH&S policy and objectives.

Many organizations have undertaken OH&S reviews or audits to assess their OH&S performance. On their own, however, these reviews and audits may not be sufficient to provide an organization with the assurance that its performance not only meets, but also will continue to meet, its legal and policy requirements. To be effective, they need to be conducted within a structured management system that is integrated within the organization.

The OHSAS Standards covering OH&S management provide organizations with the elements of an effective OH&S management system that can be integrated with other management requirements and help organizations achieve OH&S and economic objectives.

OHSAS 18002 provide generic assistance for establishing, implementing or improving an OH&S management system and demonstrates successful implementation of BS OHSAS 18001.

BS OHSAS 18001 specifies requirements for an OH&S management system to help an organization develop and implement a policy and objectives, which take into account legal requirements and information about OH&S risks. It applies to all types and sizes of organizations and accommodates diverse geographical, cultural and social conditions.
