Safeguard your staff, reputation and business opportunities.
Managing health and safety doesn’t have to be complicated, costly or time-consuming. In fact it’s easier than you think. OHSAS 18001 (soon to be ISO 45001) is an internationally recognised standard for occupational health and safety management. Certification to the standard demonstrates that the organisation has considered how they will identify, manage and control health and safety risks.
An increasing number of organisations are now looking at implementing OHSAS 18001 Certification as employers are under increasing pressure to ensure that a rigorous health and safety policy is in place which protects clients, staff and contractors against possible occupational risks, and reduces the likelihood of accidents in the workplace.
We will work with you to design, document, implement and operate a simple Health and Safety management system that meets all the requirements of OHSAS 18001. We will design the system around your existing Health and Safety practices wherever possible, including the completion of risk assessments as necessary. We will help you to establish the necessary controls to ensure you are in compliance with relevant legislation, help you to identify the areas of your business which do not comply to the OHSAS 18001 standard, and redesign them with minimal disruption to your operation.
Once the system has been implemented, we will recommend you for the initial audit visit from a UKAS accredited external assessment body. We will then arrange for your system to be fully audited prior to the final OHSAS 18001 external assessment, which will usually take place within 3 months of the initial audit visit (depending on the external assessment body).
