ISO 45001 / OHSAS 18001

This standard demonstrates your company’s diligence in the workplace and value held for staff and other parties involved in daily business activities.

Occupational Health & Safety

ISO 45001 is replacing the existing OHSAS 18001 standard. It is the assessment specification for Occupational Health & Safety (OH&S) Management Systems. An OHSAS 18001 certification will see the implementation, maintenance and continuous improvement of an OH&S management system tailored to your business, including building upon an existing model should you already have one in place.

Business Benefits
  • Internationally recognised standard
  • Certification Accredited by UKAS
  • Integration with ISO 9001 and ISO 14001
  • Eliminate or minimise health and safety risks in the workplace
  • Aids legislative compliance by enabling your business to conform with your stated OH&S policy
  • Improve staff morale through a safe working environment
Gap Analysis

We can also offer a gap analysis as part of a pre-certification audit check, to allow your team to develop an action plan to work towards certification. This is particularly helpful if you have other ISOs in place such as 9001 for Quality or 14001 for Environmental Management.
