Organizations of all kinds are increasingly trying to improve their efficiency in the area of occupational health and safety. These organizations try to show their effort to their shareholders, employees, partners and other involved parties by managing the risks and increasing the positive effects of their activities, products and services. The increasingly harsh legislation, economic policies, human resources planning and other measures promote the enforcement of the system of occupational health and safety.

The Occupational health and safety management systems (OHSAS) is an international standard, which defines the requirements related to occupational health and safety, so organizations could easily manage the hazards and risks and improve their efficiency. OHSAS 18001 can be introduced to every organization, regardless of its type. By acquiring the OHSAS 18001 standard, an organization proves that risks and hazards, deriving from everyday practice or unpredictable situations, are handled in an appropriate manner. The OHSAS 18001 standard was specially designed, so it can be interlinked with other standards, like ISO 9001 and ISO 14001.

  • improvement of the organization’s safety culture,
  • increased efficiency and minimized production-time loss,
  • demonstrates compliance with the legislations,
  • increased reputation by meeting the health and safety requirements,
