foresight for responsible management

Health & Safety Management System

Many organisations are implementing an Occupational Health and Safety Management System (OHSMS) as part of their risk management strategy to address changing legislation and protect their workforce.

 

An OHSMS promotes a safe and healthy working environment by providing a framework that allows your organisation to consistently identify and control its health and safety risks, reduce the potential for accidents, aid legislative compliance and improve overall performance.

 

OHSAS 18001 has been designed to be compatible with ISO 9001 and ISO 14001, to help your organisation meet their health and safety obligations in an efficient manner.

 

 

The following key areas are addressed by OHSAS 18001:

 

  • Planning for hazard identification, risk assessment and risk control 

  • OHSAS management programme to drive operational control

  • Structure and responsibility through performance measuring, monitoring 
    and improvement

  • Training, awareness and competence 

  • Consultation and communication

  • Emergency preparedness and response
