OHSAS 18001 – Occupational Health & Safety Certification
We provide UKAS Accredited certification to the OHSAS 18001 standard, an internationally recognised standard for Occupational Health and Safety (OH&S) management.
The importance of effective occupational health & safety management is now recognised by employees, customers, suppliers, contractors, regulatory agencies, insurers, and stakeholders alike, and is increasingly becoming a primary concern to interested parties.
OHSAS 18001 helps organisations from a range of sectors to put in place a system for demonstrating sound occupational health & safety performance. It is the most widely recognised and popular choice for health & safety management system.
The process to successfully achieve certification to OHSAS 18001 includes the following key elements:
Planning for hazard identification, risk assessment and risk control
OHSAS management programme
Structure and responsibility
Training, awareness and competence
Consultation and communication
Emergency preparedness and response
Performance measuring, monitoring and improvement
Safety Schemes in Procurement (SSIP) Certification
As we are a registered member of the SSIP (Safety Schemes in Procurement) forum your OHSAS 18001 certification will automatically include SSIP Certification without any additional audits.
The SSIP forum acts as an umbrella organisation to facilitate mutual recognition between health and safety assessment schemes. This means that OHSAS 18001 certification with Ocean will be mutually recognised between SSIP member schemes and therefore will negate the requirement to hold other scheme memberships/certifications.
