The purpose of the Occupational Health and Safety Assessment System OHSAS 18001 is to make operational risks recognisable, reducible and manageable. As it is conceptually linked to the international standards ISO 9001 and ISO 14001, OHSAS 18001 can easily be implemented and certified within an integrated management system.
OHSAS 18001 comprises a complete set of management specifications for improving the health and safety of your employees. What’s more, if you have offices in several countries, you need to comply with a variety of laws relating to accidents, absenteeism, competencies, and working conditions. At DEKRA our local auditors work within a global network, so we can also certify your international locations.
An OHSAS 18001 certification demonstrates that you have your occupational health and safety affairs in order. By introducing an OHSAS system, you demonstrate that you employ a proactive system for reducing absenteeism and accidents and gaining insight into the competencies of your personnel.
We have issued numerous certificates worldwide in accordance with OHSAS 18001. You can combine several ISO certificates in a single audit round. For example, ISO 9001 (Quality management) or ISO 14001 (Environmental Management System saving you both time and money. We provide dedicated audits that are tailored to the specific characteristics of your organisation. Let us help you achieve maximum effect with minimum effort.
