OHSAS 18001:2007 Occupational Health & Safety Management System (OHSAS)
The Occupational Health & Safety Management System (OHSAS) Training has been developed as per OHSAS 18001:2007 standards. It should be noted that OHSAS 18001:2007 does not state specific performance criteria, or give detailed specifications for the design of a management system. Instead, the system is geared towards reducing and preventing accidents and accident-related loss of lives, resources, and time. It also provides guidance on how to manage the health and safety aspects of business activities more effectively, while taking into careful consideration accident prevention, risk reduction and the well being of employees
Health and safety is one of the most important aspects of an organization’s smooth and effective functioning. Good health and safety performance ensures an accident free industrial environment.
OHSAS 18001 has been developed to be compatible with the ISO 9001 (Quality) and ISO 14001 (Environmental) management systems standards, in order to facilitate the integration of quality, environmental and occupational health and safety management systems by organizations.
