OHSAS 18001 (ISO 45001)Occupational health and safety management standard
OHSAS 18001:2007 is an occupational health and safety management standard. It defines a set of occupational health and safety management requirements for occupational health and safety management systems. Internationally, the standard is now the most widely used occupational health and safety management standard.
The OHSAS 18001:2007 standard was officially published in July 2007. (NOTE: This standard will soon be replaced by the ISO 45001 standard.)
The purpose of the standard is to assist organisations in managing and controlling their occupational health and safety risks and to continually improve their performance. Organisations can achieve this purpose by developing their occupational health and safety management systems that complies with OHSAS 18001:2007.
EazySAFE will work with the main stakeholders within the organisation to prepare it for certification. Initially a gap analysis will be completed to evaluate the current position of the occupational health and safety management system. Main ‘gaps’ and ‘enablers’ will be identified and a development plan produced to allow the organisation to define a path to compliance and certification to the standard.
If required, this can blended with existing ISO 9001 (Quality) and ISO 14001 (Environmental) to form an overall ISO standard for all your applications.
Management system elements that will be included in the gap analysis include:
- OHS Policy / Objectives & Targets
- Hazard Identification, Risk Assessment, Controls
- Legal Registers / Evaluation of Compliance / Internal Audit
- Resources, Roles, Responsibility, Accountability & Authority
- Competence, Training & Awareness
- Communication, Participation & Consultation
- Document Control / Records
- Operational Control
- Emergency Preparedness & Response
- Performance Measurement & Monitoring
- Incident Investigation, Nonconformity, Corrective & Preventive Actions
- Management Review
