  • Benefits of ISO OHSAS 18001 Certification:
    Increase profit: - OHSAS 18001 ensures that the organisation identifies and manages health & safety risks effectively, which can prevent unexpected costs for injury claims or disaster recovery and lead to a substantial reduction in insurance premiums. A 50% reduction in insurance premiums is not unusual.

    OHSAS 18001 causes organizations to focus on the causes of ill health. This can have a direct and significant effect on days lost for sickness, leading to reduced wage costs and increased productivity.

    Manage business risk: - OHSAS 18001 ensures that the organization identifies and manages health & safety risks to its employees, contractors & the public. Since the majority of serious accidents are caused by a failure to carry out risk assessment, or to act on risk assessment effectively, the standard can help the organization to avoid serious accidents, fatalities and interruptions to business operations.

    OHSAS 18001 helps the organization to bring their supply chain and contractors under control, reducing the chance of delay or downtime caused by their failure to comply with health & safety legislation.

    OHSAS 18001 requires that an organization identifies and manages its legal responsibilities and so avoids prosecution of the organization and its officers.

    Increase sales: - OHSAS 18001 boosts an organization’s brand reputation and gives access to customers that demand that their suppliers hold a certified health & safety management standard. OHSAS 18001 helps to reduce operating costs, so helps the organization to maintain margin under price pressure.

    Improve employee performance: - OHSAS 18001 ensures that the organisation protects the health & well-being of employees and responds to adverse trends, leading to reduced sickness absence, better morale and lower staff turnover. Skill shortages and lack of competence are identified and addressed, leading to fewer accidents.

    Improve relationships with third parties:- OHSAS 18001 re-assures regulators & investors that the organization has health & safety management under control.
