Organizations are under constant pressure to demonstrate sound occupational safety and show that their health and safety management systems are up to standard. They also need to control their occupational safety hazards, and operate in line with their health and safety policies. BS OHSAS 18002 specifies all the essential elements to help organizations implement an effective occupational health and safety management system that can be integrated with other management operations. By complying with this standard, organizations can boost their planning and policy formation to achieve occupational health and safety, as well as their economic objectives.
BS OHSAS 18002 gives general, hands-on support to help organizations establish, implement and improve their occupational health and safety systems, while complying with BS OHSAS 18001. BS OHSAS 18001 was created to assist organizations with the development of their policies and documents. It also takes legal requirements and risk assessments into account, and applies to all types and sizes of organizations – accommodating diverse geographical, cultural and social conditions.
