The Occupational Health and Safety Assessment Series (OHSAS) is the Health and Safety framework that can be utilised across all sectors. As we all know, a business’s success can heavily depend on the level of commitment that is provided at each and every level.
Some of the benefits of OHSAS 18001:
improved operational performance,
a reduction in the number of accidents and near misses,
less employee absenteeism/downtime,
a reduction in administration costs,
helps to create a Health and Safety culture and safer working environment,
a more positive image of your organisation,
the potential to reduce insurance premiums and legal prosecutions by controlling as far as reasonably practicable the risks associated to their business.
generate a positive image of your organisation.
This year has seen the introduction of ISO 45001 which is the replacement to OHSAS 18001 and will be the ISO for Occupational Health and Safety Management Systems that provides a framework to improve employee safety by reducing workplace risk and generate a more positive culture towards organisational Health and Safety.
