Implementing BS OHSAS 18001 Occupational Health and Safety Management
BS OHSAS 18001 does more than protect your staff – it reassures stakeholders that you take corporate responsibility seriously, and can provide you with a competitive edge. Work with us to build an OHSAS 18001 occupational health and safety management system and you can put in place the policies, procedures and controls needed for your organization to achieve the best possible working conditions.
Are you ready for implementation?
Every organization faces different hazards and risks. And each organization is at a different stage with their health and safety management. That’s why we offer customized packages to help you put health and safety first. A BS OHSAS 18001 package can include only the products and services that your business needs. This helps you to cut the cost of unnecessary products or services, and overcome the particular health and safety challenges you face.
We’ll help you shape an OHSAS 18001 Project Plan with the systems you already have in place. And we’ll help you to identity and minimize health hazards and safety risks – while reassured staff and customers, enhanced brand and image, and preferred supplier status become part of your future.
