OHSAS 18001 Management System Audits

To see how ACT can be of assistance please contact our sales enquiry team on +44(0)1384 447915 to discuss your needs, or alternatively send us an email.

The Occupational Health and Safety Assessment Series OHSAS 18001:2007 is an established standard and is recognised internationally as an appropriate approach to the management of health and safety issues in the workplace.

OHSAS 18001 encourages organisations to identify and establish risk control management systems to reduce the likelihood of loss to the organisation and others affected by its operations. This provides an opportunity for continuous improvement through senior management review and may assist with a defence in personal or corporate prosecutions.

ACT Resource provides an independent audit service to assess your management system against OHSAS 18001 requirements.

You may want to know how well orientated to OHSAS 18001 your management system is before you start an implementation programme to meet the standard.  ACT Resource can undertake an initial gap analysis audit to obtain a clear and concise picture of the current status of health and safety in your organisation.  
The audit will include:

  • A review of current management approach/systems adopted by your organisation.
  • An in-depth audit across all areas of OH&S management, including compliance with legislation and conformity with the OHSAS 18001 standard.

You may want to validate the implementation work you have already done before approaching a certification body to confirm conformity.  ACT Resource can conduct a pre-certification audit planned to give sufficient time to amend non-conforming systems.  The audit would follow a similar pattern to a certification audit but provide opportunity for discussion of any non-conformances found.  The audit would include an assessment of management systems documents, workplace observations and interviews.

You may want our assistance with your internal audit programme, we can provide regular audits to periodically check conformity or you can take our service on a needs basis, perhaps where you need extra resource.

Audits will be conducted against the Occupational Health Safety Assessment Series management system standard (BS OHSAS 18001: 2007) by our consultant.  Our consultants have several years experience in the effective analysis and development of health and safety management systems.

A full report will be issued, together with management briefing/summary note.  This could form the basis of a presentation to Senior Management if required.

Building on the findings of the audit, a focussed OHSAS 18001 Implementation Strategy could be developed, incorporating a prioritised action list with timelined key performance indicators (KPIs) for the non-conforming areas identified by the audit.  See our Management Systems Consultancy Services for more information on help with implementation of OHSAS 18001.
