How to get certified to BS OHSAS 18001

We make the certification process simple. After we have received your application we appoint a client manager who will guide you and your business through the following steps.

  1. Gap analysis
    This is an optional pre-assessment service where we take a closer look at your existing occupational health and safety management system and compare it with BS OHSAS 18001 requirements. This helps identify areas that need more work before we carry out a formal assessment, saving you time and money.

  2. Formal assessment
    This happens in two stages. First we review your organization's preparedness for assessment by checking if the necessary BS OHSAS 18001 procedures and controls have been developed.We will share the details of our findings with you via our Assurance Portal, so that if we find gaps, you can close them.
    Next, if all the requirements are in place, we’ll assess the implementation of the procedures and controls within your organization to make sure that they are working effectively as required for certification of BS OHSAS 18001.

  3. Certification and beyond
    When you have passed the formal assessment you will receive a BS OHSAS 18001 certificate, which is valid for three years. Your client manager will stay in touch during this time, visiting you regularly to make sure your system doesn’t just remain compliant, but that it continually improves and adds value to your organization.

    You’ll be able to access all the information related to your certification via our BSI Assurance Portal. Available  24/7, you can view essential information, such as your next 12 months of visit dates, audit reports, and certificates to support you with managing your BSI assessments and promoting your success.
