Occupational Health and Safety Management System Certification

Occupational Health and Safety Management System Certification

Serious and not-so serious work-related accidents happen every day. However, with excellent practices and safety-minded attitude, the number of accidents can be minimized. That’s where good leadership and systematic processes are called for.

Your company’s leadership and risk management can be improved through a certified occupational health and safety management system. Certification is based on the international OHSAS 18001 standard, which aims to prevent accidents and illness in advance, to ensure staff well-being and to guide one’s career path towards healthy retirement. The standard also helps to link health and safety issues to management. The idea is to turn the focus on risk assessment and analysis instead of the number of single accidents.

The OHSAS 18001 certificate is a signal to both your current and future personnel and customers: it tells them that your company invests in creating a safe work place. OHSAS 18001 is compatible with the most popular international quality and environmental management standards ISO 9001 and ISO 14001. Your management systems can be evaluated and certified separately or simultaneously. Also, follow-up assessments may be combined. Thus companies that have received several certificates by Kiwa Inspecta enjoy maximized synergy in their audits.
