OHSAS 18001

We often hear,

“SAFETY IS A STATE OF MIND BUT ACCIDENTS ARE ABSCENSE OF MIND.”

To prevent the occurrence of accidents ISO brought the standard OHSAS 18001.

OHSAS 18001 specifies the set of requirements for an effective occupational health and safety management system (OHSMS). It was developed in response to the need for companies to meet their health and safety obligations in an efficient manner. We provide our assistance in bringing further improvements in the existing OH&S management system, making it compatible as per prevalent industry standards.

OHSAS uses the prevention concept, i.e. prevention instead of cure. This is integrated in the work protection law, and states the work safety and health protection should be treated in one complete system.
