OHSAS 18001 Safety Audit

BS OHSAS 18001:2007 is an internationally recognised standard used to assess the status of an organisation’s occupational health and safety management system.

It is suited to workplaces looking to effectively manage the risk of work-related accidents and ill health. It can verify that occupational health and safety systems and arrangements meet recognised standard criteria.

Although fundamentally a British Standard, OHSAS 18001 has become one of the most popular health and safety management standard internationally.

We can provide independent certification for your health and safety managements system to the standard providing your stakeholders with assurance and confidence in your health and safety performance.

How does it work?

The initial audit is carried out in two stages. Stage one is primarily a document review (although it will include limited interviews and operational sampling), which will ensure that the requirements of the OHSAS 18001 standard are in place.

Stage two reviews any non-conformances identified during the stage one process and measures the implementation of the systems against standard requirements.

An audit report is provided at the end of stage two, detailing any non-conformances, opportunities for improvement and a recommendation for certification if appropriate.

Annual (minimum) surveillance visits are required throughout the three year certification period.
