BS OHSAS 18001 sets out the requirements for health and safety management.
Health and Safety is of utmost importance to many industries. Companies are made to abide strictly by laws and regulations to ensure the safety of both employees and customers.
Within business accidents in the workplace are now becoming more dangerous to businesses, both in terms of physical health but they now often have more significant financial damages.
The rise of the “ no-win-no-fee “ culture where people are suing businesses for small injuries and accidents means that if you are not providing the correct safety equipment, ensuring rules and regulations are followed or ensuring employees are safe then your business may become the next business punished by “ no-win-no-fee “ lawyers!.
OHSAS 18001 is not an international standard due to varying international legal requirements, this specification does provide a framework that provides assurances of a robust legally compliant management system.
