OHSAS 18001 is a voluntary document that establishes the requirements for an effective OHSAS MS. This document was developed to help companies control OHSAS risks and improve overall performance. An OHSAS 18001 management system is a statement to your employees, customers, suppliers, stakeholders and community that your company has done everything in its power to reduce health and safety risks.
One of the most important aspects of the Occupational Health & Safety Management System (OHSAS 18001) is its requirement for proactive identification, monitoring and management of health and safety risks. Once implemented, it perpetuates good practice in order to minimize operational risk.
