OHSAS 18001

What is OHSAS 18001?

OHSAS 18001 is a standard used for an occupational health and safety management system, which enables an organisation to control its risks and improve its performance in this area.  The standard provides a systematic approach to identifying hazards, and then either eliminates or reducing the risks of the hazards.

Who can use OHSAS 18001?

All types of organisations.  You need to achieve certification to this standard if you want to work with companies where it is a contractual requirement.


  • Reduce risks - it can contribute to a healthier working environment and help reduce accidents, employee illness and lost time.
  • Improved staff morale - it can help support improved staff morale and offers potential reductions in liability claims and lower insurance premiums.
  • Credibility - your organisation can benefit from increased credibility by having an OHS management system independently assessed.
  • Supplier of choice - it lets you work with companies where certification to OHSAS 18001 is a contractual requirement.
