OHSAS 18001 - Occupation Health & Safety, Management system
About OHSAS 18001
OHSAS 18001 is an Occupation Health and Safety Assessment Series certification for health and safety management systems, which enables an organization to control occupational health and safety risks and to improve performance. OHSAS uses the prevention concept, i.e. prevention instead of cure. This is integrated in the work protection law, and states the work safety and health protection should be treated in one complete system. OHSAS 18001 was developed by the OHSAS Project Group, an association of 43 organizations from 38 countries including national standards bodies, registrars (certification bodies), OHAS institutes and OHAS leading consultants.
