Management Systems, Training, Audit & Product Distribution Prepared 4 Ltd Occupational Health & Safety Management Systems

Health & Safety Management Systems very in size and scope.  Systems to help establish and control key documents, such as risk assessments, safe systems of work, procedures, records and Health & Safety Policies help organisations comply with the law and promote standards of performance.  

Some organisations chose to demonstrate their commitment to Health & Safety compliance and improvement by seeking external certification.   What is important is that your Health & Safety Management System works for you, not against you; enabling businesses to operate and thrive with ever changing needs.  Having a system in place should help document, manage and minimise risks to occupational safety and health.  It should also enable all within the organisation to understand and fulfil their responsibilities.

BS OHSAS 18001:2007 provides the option of 3rd party accreditation for Occupational Health & Safety Systems.  There are now over 16,000 certified organisations, spanning 80 countries and many business sectors.


BS OHSAS 18001 was written to ensure compatibility with other international standards - such as ISO 9001 (quality management systems) and ISO 14001 (environmental management systems).  It follows the same management principals and structure.  The foundations of the Plan - Do - Check - Act route to continual improvement are also embraced.


BS OHSAS 18001:2007 requires that principals of good occupational health and safety are adopted but is nor prescriptive in telling you how you must do it.  This enables it to be adopted by organisations of all types and sizes, with varying level of need and available resource.


Requirements of BS OHSAS 18001 include:


Benefits of adopting BS OHSAS 18001 within your business could include:
