  OHSAS 18001—Health and Safety Management
The management of Health and Safety is becoming a growing problem in the INDIA. Recent figures from the Health and Safety Executive indicate that there were 241 fatalities in the period 2006/2007, with very little change in this figure over the last 5 years.

Combined with the poor publicity and subsequent loss of reputation arising from incidents, it makes good sense to establish a safety management system.

  What is OHSAS 18001?
OHSAS 18001 is intended to help businesses control occupational health and safety risks. It was developed in response to a widespread demand for a recognised standard for which to be certified too and falls neatly in line with the ISO 14001 standard.

It is a framework that allows a business to consistently identify and control its health and safety risks, reduce the potential for accidents and legislative requirements and improve overall performance.
  What are the benefits of having OHSAS 18001?
  • A reduced risk of accidents and therefore lower staff absence.
  • Reduced risk of citations and penalties.
  • Improved operational performance through policies and procedures.
  • Ensures compliance with health and safety legislation and regulations.
  • Potential reduced Insurance premiums.
  • Increased access to new customers through an improved corporate image.
  • A positive reputation and Health and Safety track record.
  • Increased staff awareness of Health and Safety.
  How can ZBCS help you achieve OHSAS 18001?
We will help you design, document, implement and operate a simple health and safety management system that meets all the requirements of OHSAS 18001.

We will design the system around your existing health and safety practices where ever possible, including the completion of risk assessments as necessary. We will help you to establish the necessary controls to ensure you are in compliance with relevant legislation, and help you identify and solve the areas of your business that do not comply to the OHSAS 18001 standard.

Once the system has been implemented, we will recommend you for the initial audit visit from an external assessment body. We will then arrange for your system to be fully audited by one of our very own auditors; with the final

OHSAS 18001 external assessment taking place within 3 months of the initial audit visit (depending upon the external assessment body).
