THE STANDARD FOR OCCUPATIONAL HEALTH AND SAFETY
OHSAS 18001 requires a systematic approach to accidents, incidences, near misses and industrial hygiene.
DEKRA takes OHSAS 18001 and, where appropriate, incorporates it into other management systems, when applicable. DEKRA will perform integrated audits with these other management systems to lessen the operational disruption as well as saving costs. Although occupational health and safety programs are normally considered overhead requirements, DEKRA audits to OHSAS 18001 so that it, as a management system, provides business value as well as meeting the laws and regulations.
In the United States, there is another occupational health and safety management system standard that is sometimes requested: ASNSI/AIHA Z10. Since there are some minor differences between it and OHSAS 18001, DEKRA is qualified to certify companies to this strictly US standard, if requested. Our program manager is prepared to discuss how we can customize an occupational health and safety management system audit program to meet your business and health and safety needs.
