OHSAS 18001:2007

The OHSAS 18001:2007 occupational health and safety management system protections the full range of management necessities condition. You can recognize and investigate potential hazards, and calculate the related risks, which you then use as the basis for designing and planning aims and programs to improve your employees’ safety. By defining responsibilities and training your workforce, you are taking precautions and equipping yourself to handle any potential emergency. The OHSAS 18001:2007 standard specifies requirements for an occupational health and safety (OH&S) management system that permits organizations to control OH&S risks and improve performance. It does not state specific OH&S performance criteria, nor does it give detailed specifications for the design of a management system. The standard gives a framework to assess hazards related to procedures, work environment and the risks associated. The standard demands to establish the program to decrease the risks and improve upon. The revised standard of 2007 version gives equal importance to occupational health. A global standard, OHSAS 18001:2007 can integrate with ISO 9001 and ISO 14001 for environmental management systems. This is a favorite approach by management so as to take care of the risks related to product, environment and employees.
