With the success of the ISO9001 and ISO14001 series of Standards, OHSAS18001 was developed to be compatible with ISO management systems. To allow for easy integration into a company’s quality management system, many sections and sub-clauses are similar, such as management review, document control and corrective and preventive actions. To obtain compliance, companies must first establish an OHS policy that illustrates the company’s vision and commitment to health and safety. Any potential hazards must be determined and identified, and their risks assessed and controlled on an on-going basis. Tactics utilised should be defined and consistent. In order for an OHS management system to be implemented effectively, management should be ready to commit adequate resource to monitor activities and conduct internal audits to identify areas for improvement, ensuring the effectiveness of the OHS management system. Policies and procedures need to be identified and prepared in order to control operations, including emergency preparedness and response plans. Documentation should be accurate, up-to-date, easily accessible and properly controlled.
