Overview

Organizations throughout the world are increasingly concerned about achieving and demonstrating sound occupational health and safety performance in the international community. These organizations look to demonstrate their performance by committing to sound OH&S policies and performance programmes.

The OHSAS 18000 Series includes both OHSAS 18001:2007 (Occupational Health and Safety Management Systems – OHSMS) and OHSAS 18002:2000 (Occupational Health and Safety Management Systems Guidelines for the implementation of OHSAS 18001). Combined, their active use through implementation and effective management helps the organization to assure itself of its conformance with its stated OH&S Policy.

OHSAS 18001:2007 has been set up to work in conjunction of an already existing and functioning documented management system, in particular the ISO 9001 and ISO 14001 Standards. This provides a natural means for full integration with existing management systems.

The basic premise for the OH&S series is that every organization requires effective managing of its OH&S risks and to improve its performance over these identified risks. The principle benefit and argument for an organization establishing an effective OH&S management system is that its existence and active use helps the organization in controlling, eliminating or minimizing OH&S risks to its employees and other interested parties who may be exposed to similar risks.

OHSAS 18001:2007 is for any organization that wishes to:

  • Implement, maintain and improve an OH&S Management System,
  • Assure itself of the conformance with its stated OH&S policy,
  • Demonstrate its conformance to others,
  • Seek certification / registration of its OH&S Management System by an external organization,

This course examines these issues, identifies areas OH&S Management Systems must review to ensure conformance, and assists OH&S Management Systems during their development.

This course contains one workshop designed to examine and explore OHSAS 18001:2007.
