Safety Management System Certification

Contact us

OHSAS 18001 is a comprehensive and certifiable Occupational Health and Safety (OH&S) management system, designed to enable organizations to control OH&S risks.

The implementation of a safety management system can make the management of occupational health and safety risks more transparent and effective, by translating risk assessments into action plans. In almost every case, companies have their systems assessed independently in order to enhance credibility.

Our solution
The external audit should be conducted by an independent party such as Applus+ Velosi. Initially we will carry out a review of the OH&S manuals and procedures. This review includes looking at the company’s written OH&S management system and ascertaining if targets set for the management program are measurable and achievable. An on-site audit of the system is then performed to ensure that working practices follow the procedures and stated objectives and that appropriate records are kept. After a successful audit, an OHSAS 18001 registration certificate will be issued.

Applus+ Velosi also provides professional training programs in partnership with an international training organization that uses competent professionals in Safety Management System. Our courses are designed to provide you with the tools you need in order to make the most of your management system.

Benefits
Implementing a Safety Management System helps an organization to identify risks involved in the workplace and helps to prioritize objectives for incorporating practices and reducing risks. It also reduces the number of personnel injuries through prevention and control of workplace hazards, and reduces the risk of major accidents. Furthermore, it enhances public image and demonstrates legal compliance, reducing the risk of potential litigation. It also may lead to new customers and partners who require suppliers to meet criteria relevant to the tender.
