OHSAS 18001


OHSAS18001 is a specification for Occupational Health and Safety (OHS) management systems that was published in 1999. It was developed in response to the need for companies to meet their health and safety obligations in an efficient manner. This Health & Safety Management System is a framework that allows an organization to consistently identify and control its health and safety risks, reduce the potential for accidents, aid legislative compliance and improve overall performance. The specification was developed to provide a model for OHS management systems and their internal or external assessment and/or certification in the absence of a suitable international (ISO) standard. It is closely aligned with ISO14001, the model for environmental management.


The following key areas are addressed by OHSAS18001:

  Planning for hazard identification, risk assessment and risk control
  OHSAS management programme
  Structure and responsibility
  Training, awareness and competence
  Consultation and communication
  Operational control
  Emergency preparedness and response
  Performance measuring, monitoring and improvement


The benefits with implementing a certified OHS management system are as follows:

  Improved safety levels by controlling hazards and risk can contribute to a healthier and safer working environment and avoid a high proportion of accidents and occupational health problems
  IThe management of health and safety becoming more transparent and effective by translating the outputs of risk assessment, audits, inspections, legal reviews and incident investigations into action plans to minimize the risk of accidents, now and in the future
  IImproved operational efficiency through accident management reduction and reduction in downtime
  IImproved staff morale, potential reductions in liability claims and reduced costs for insurance premiums
