OHSAS 18001 certification was developed as a similar approach to the ISO 9001 certification but covers the management of Health & Safety risks and responsibilities. OHSAS 18001 is the Health & Safety Management Standard. Its requirements are based on Best Practice to assist managing your Health & Safety responsibilities and risks, the prevention of injury & ill health as well as continual improvement.

As the system is documented, the relevant legal and other requirements, to your business, are considered and documented as well as the relevant Health & Safety risks. Then you specify how to reduce, control and manage them. The Standard does not specify particular Health & Safety performance criteria.
Note: In the UK, any business employing more than 5 employees must have conducted a Risk Assessment & document significant findings. Traditionally H&S are reactive to the latest legal requirement. They often result in a cumbersome and fragmented documentation, which is difficult to implement & maintain as well as confusing to employees. Instead OHSAS 18001 is based on a risk based and integrated approach.
OHSAS 18001 is relevant to any business that wants to ensure that it look after employees, conforms to its legal and other responsibilities, and manages its Health & Safety risks. All the parts of OHSAS 18001 should be included into any Health & Safety management system. However, every Health & Safety system will differ because of the differences of activities, services and location.
