OHSAS 18001:2007


OHSAS 18001 is a recognized standard for the internal and external assessment of Occupational Health & Safety (OH&S) Management Systems. While this standard does not state specific OH&S performance criteria, senior management can use it to control the OH&S risks.

Organizations achieve continual improvement of their overall performance by effectively implementing and maintaining their OH&S management system. However, compliance with OHSAS 18001 does not of itself replace legal obligations, nor does it imply the safety of products or services.

OHSAS18001 is designed to be compatible with ISO9001 and especially with ISO14001 (environmental management system standard).
