OHSAS 18001 For Occupational Health & Safety - OHSAS 18001

What is OHSAS 18001?
OHSAS 18001 is the latest certification specification for Occupational Health and Safety Management Systems. It is based on already published criteria such as BS 8800 and the Management Regulations 1992. OHSAS 18001 is an audit/certification specification, not a legislative requirement or a guide to implementation.

Why Seek Certification To OHSAS 18001?
Registration to OHSAS 18001 by an independent, third party, certification body demonstrates a commitment to implement, maintain and improve the way in which you manage your Health and Safety system.

Organisations registered to OHSAS 18001 can be more confident about meeting the requirements of H & S legislation. The setting of targets through the Health and Safety policy, together with the ongoing measurement against it ensures a process of continual improvement

How Do You Start To Implement OHSAS 18001? What Is Involved?
Firstly, evaluate the Health and Safety needs of your staff and visitors. Then identify the boundaries of your Health and Safety system and document your procedures for meeting the requirements of OHSAS 18001. Ensure these procedures are fully implemented, then audit and review them.

Once developed, internal audits are needed to ensure the system continues to be effective. Always bear in mind the need to conform to legislative requirements.

Assessment To OHSAS 18001
Having chosen a third party certification body for your audit, it will review your documentation to ascertain that it meets all the requirements of OHSAS 18001. This is followed at a later date by an audit to check that records are being kept and documented working practices are being followed.

After a successful audit, a certificate of registration to OHSAS 18001 will be issued. Then there will be continual surveillance visits (usually once a year) to ensure that the system is maintained and continues to be effective.

Why Choose QCPL For Your Assessment?
QCPL has an enviable record for customer satisfaction with its certification services. A friendly approach to audits and dislike of bureaucracy has led to unprecedented growth through referrals from contented clients. QCPL only employs auditors who have empathy with this approach. Auditors are also carefully allocated by their experience in the industry they are auditing. This results in a practical, meaningful audit, carried out in an air of mutual understanding. QCPL firmly believes that any audit should benefit the organisation that requests it, not be an intellectual exercise to 'please' the auditor.

What is The Cost of Assessment To OHSAS 18001?
With Health and Safety impacting on different types and sizes of organisations quite differently, it is difficult to produce a meaningful price list that is readily understood. We have produced an outline guidance price list to give you some idea of assessment fees. If you would like a copy, please get in touch. For specific costings, we ask you to complete a short on-line questionnaire telling us about your organisation. From that we provide you with a fixed, written quotation. If you prefer, we will happily complete one for you over the telephone - Call Us on +44 161 865 3699.

Joint OHSAS 18001, ISO 9000 and ISO 140001 Systems
There are several common elements between these three systems, such as management review, document control, corrective action and the requirement for trained personnel. These can be integrated into a single, joint system or a combination of any of the above. Audit of joint systems is available and may be the best method for some companies.

Integrated systems not only help organisations internally, by reducing duplication and providing a centralised document control system, but may also offer cost benefits for your third-party audit.
