ISO:14001 specifies requirements for an environmental management system to enable an organization to develop and implement a policy and objectives which take into account legal requirements and other requirements to which the organization subscribes, and information about significant environmental aspects. It applies to those environmental aspects that the organization identifies as those which it can control and those which it can influence. It does not itself state specific environmental performance criteria.
OSHA:18001 Certification is the recognised specification for the management of Occupational Health and Safety. It was developed in response to industry demand for a standardised health and safety management system standard that could be externally assessed and certified. OHSAS 18001 is not a legislative requirement but it does enable organisations to identify pertinent legislation, control risks and improve performance.
OHSAS 18001:2015 Occupational, Health and Safety Management Certification provides a framework to identify, control and decrease the risks associated with health and safety within your company. Completing OHSAS 18001 certification will indicate to all of your stakeholders that as an organisation you you’re your company’s employee’s health and safety as a principal priority within your business.
