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 occupational health and safety management system that will get the best results from safer working conditions.  


Are you ready for implementation?

Every organisation faces different hazards and risks. Also, each organisation is at a different stage with their health and safety management. That is why we offer customised 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 will help you shape an OHSAS 18001 Project Plan with the systems you already have in place. We will also help you to identity and minimise health hazards and safety risks – while reassured staff and customers, enhanced brand and image, and preferred supplier status become part of your future.
