The onus on you to demonstrate your organisations commitment to management of occupational health and safety is rising.

What is BS OHSAS 18001?

BS OHSAS 18001 is the internationally recognised standard for occupational health and safety management systems.

Why should I consider getting certification?

  • better management of health and safety risks through improved processes
  • reduced accidents and work related ill-health
  • improved safety culture and staff morale
  • legal and regulatory compliance
  • competitive advantage gained through well-controlled risks
