OHSAS 18001:2007

A good start will be to carry out an internal audit on all areas that will need to be part of an OHSAS audit by identifying hazards and carrying out risk assessments. JAS Certification has PASCB Accreditation so before you start contact us to find out more. You will need support from the entire management team to implement processes across all areas of the organisation.

Some things you will need to consider::

  • Planning and establishing a framework
  • Establishing roles and responsibilities
  • Processes for hazard identification and risk assessments
  • Reporting and monitoring
  • Documentation
  • Emergency procedures
  • Measure and constantly improve processes
  • Performance reviews
  • Understanding legal obligations
  • Staff training requirements
  • Establish OHSAS checklist

During the audit you will be assessed on:

  • Documentation control
  • Records being kept
  • Staff and management conformance to the system
  • Implementation of operational controls
  • How the system is working in each area of the organisation
  • Staff training necessary to meet the requirements

The audit can be undertaken by a number of Certification bodies, however it is important to note that not all auditing organisations are PASCB accredited. If you do not use a PASCB accredited auditor your certification could end up being worthless.
