OHSAS 18001 is the internationally recognized Occupational Health and Safety Management System standard.  OHSAS 18001 is intended to address Occupational Health and Safety, rather than product safety.  The OHSAS 18001 Occupational Health and Safety Management System standard provides a framework to the effective management of Occupational Health and Safety, including compliance with the legislation that applies to an organization’s activities and identified hazards.  OHSAS 18001 should be adopted by all organizations whishing to minimize or completely eliminate risk to employees who may be exposed to Occupational Health and Safety risks associated with their respective activities. Organizations that implement OHSAS 18001 should have a clear management structure with defined authority and responsibility, clear objectives for improvement, with measurable results and a structured approach to risk assessment.
