Attract and maximise your human capital with occupational safety
Despite release of the new standard ISO 45001:2018, OHSAS 18001 is still relevant in many companies for Occupational Safety Management System. The goal of OHSAS 18001 is to integrate Occupational Health and Safety requirements into existing management systems, ensuring continuous improvement of operational effectiveness.
Since March 2018, the new ISO 45001 standard for occupational health and safety management systems was released. By March 2021, it will completely replace BS OHSAS 18001.
