BSI is providing clarification on registration to the occupational health and safety assessment specification - OHSAS 18001 - at IOSH, Europe's leading body for health and safety professionals. This is the critical assessment specification for health and safety globally.

It is now law across most industries in the UK to have a third-party, verified health and safety management system in place. This exhibition provides an ideal opportunity to get to grips with the key issues and steps needed to comply.

Clive will also be on hand to answer media questions.
