BS OHSAS 18001:2007 (adopted in Ireland as SR 18001:2007) is a standard for occupational health and safety management systems. It is intended to help organizations to manage and control occupational health and safety risks. It was developed in response to widespread demand for a recognized standard against which to be certified and assessed.
While it is a legal requirement in most countries to have a formal detailed description of how occupational health and safety is managed, some organisations struggle to find the right methodology for consistently achieving compliance with safety legislation and improving their safety record. BS OHSAS 18001:2007 provides a highly effective management tool for this purpose.
In order to ensure constant compliance with procedures many organisations have opted to hold certification from an external body that carries out independent surveillance audits. Management Systems Certification provides certification to BS OHSAS 18001:2007. Increasingly it is expected that organisations have certification to an international safety management system in order to pre-qualify for tendering.
