ISO 45001 / BS OHSAS 18001 Occupational Health and Safety Management Systems
(ISO 45001 provides you with the framework for identification, control and reduction of risks related to health and safety at work.)
BS OHSAS 18001 (Occupational Health and Safety Assessment Series) is the standard enabling organisations to manage health and safety aspects of business activities in an efficient way, taking into account prevention of accidents at work, risk reduction and overall employees welfare.
Organisations are growingly devoted to showing their commitment to health and safety at work. It is crucial for employees but also for clients and owners as well as for the company’s reputation.
In addition, stricter legislation requires companies to show clear, proactive commitment to health and safety at work. Clients and employees want a proof of it in advance, and they want to know that the company will keep meeting their needs now, as well as in the future.
This is a challenge but also an opportunity for the company to reduce risks and ensure a safe working environment.
Showing commitment to health and safety at work can positively influence your internal business activity and consequently reduce the number of accidents, dangers and periods of downtime. Employees’ safety and working environment quality are actively improved because aims and responsibilities are identified more clearly, and all employees are prepared for handling potential dangers. Moreover, OHSAS 18001 ensures compliance with the relevant regulations and reduces risks of fees or legal actions.
The usual benefits of this certificate also include the ability to apply to international and public tenders.
Also, you will probably achieve a significant move forward in relation to motivation and commitment of employees due to an increase of understanding of responsibilities in relation to their safety at work.
