OHSAS 18001:2007/ISO 45001: 2018 Certification

What are OHSAS 18001:2007/ISO 45001: 2018?

Our clients, with our help, have attained their OHSAS 18001:2007/ ISO 45001: 2018 certification, demonstrating their commitment to occupational health and safety management within their organisation. ISO 45001: 2018 will supersede OHSAS 18001:2007 from March 2021 when the OHSAS standard will be phased out.

ISO45001:2018 is a framework that helps implement an occupational health and safety management system (OHSMS) to control health and safety risks, reduce the potential for incidents, help achieve compliance with health and safety legislation and continually improve performance. If your company is OHSAS 18001:2007 certified, from March 2021 ISO 45001:2018 will supersede this standard.

The management system can be adopted by most organisations, regardless of size or sector. The ISO certification process demonstrates an organisation’s commitment to protect its employees as well as protecting the future health of their organisation.

ISO 45001: 2018 must be independently certified, and it carries a great deal of weight both within an organisation itself and outwardly to its customers and the marketplace at large. The certification can help to open doors and allow businesses to tender for work that may have been previously out of reach. It’s a framework which helps you focus on the increasing expectations of customers and other stakeholders, as well as meeting regulatory requirements.
