OHSAS 18001 Health & Safety Management Systems

The Health & Safety standard promotes a safe and healthy working environment by providing a framework for a company to consistently identify and control its health and safety risks, reduce the potential for accidents, aid legislative compliance and improve overall performance.

Many organisations are implementing an Occupational Health & Safety management system as part of their risk management strategy to address changing legislation and protect their workforce. Registration to this standard demonstrates to both employees and customers that the organisation takes a positive approach towards meeting the Health & Safety Regulations.

In addition, OHSAS 18001 is designed to be compatible with other management system standards and specifications, such as ISO 14001 Environmental and ISO 9001 Quality. There is commonality between the standards which lends itself to the development of one Integrated Management System giving excellent value for money.

Is it right for us?

OHSAS 18001 can be adopted by any organisation wishing to implement a formal procedure to reduce the risks associated with health and safety in the working environment for employees, customers and the general public.

Southern Management Services have provided an excellent service in helping Hamworthy Heating Ltd achieve the OHSAS 18001 standard. For our business this accreditation was a key milestone; it provides our Customers with the confidence that we are adopting best practise and have a formalised system to deal with all H&S aspects taking the issues of Health and Safety seriously. Working with local government it was imperative that we achieved this accreditation to enable us to compete with our competitors. SMS’s contribution in providing guidance through some of the more complex aspects and contributing greatly in assisting the business with the definition of process and statutory compliance was invaluable.

We have found that their professionalism, knowledge and value for money have been excellent and, without doubt, we would not have achieved our OHSAS 18001 accreditation without their assistance and guidance. Using SMS was fundamental to achieving our aims and without their expert advice we would still be some way short of achieving the standard.
