Although the United States has a strict regulatory framework for Occupational Health & Safety, it is clear that when a business implements an OHSAS 18001 certified management system, improvements in health & safety are more widespread, longer-lasting and shared by all. As a result, the uptake of OHSAS 18001 certification is on the rise.
What is OHSAS 18001?
Jointly developed by a number of international organizations, national standards bodies and third party certification bodies (including LRQA), an OHSAS 18001 certified management system can help you identify and manage uncontrolled and unnecessary health & safety risks, better safeguarding your employees and your business.
The standard was revised in 2007, and now any organization wishing to become certified will be certified to the 2007 version.
