Documenting occupational health & safety with our OHSAS 18001 certification
Would you like to demonstrate to your clients, partners and employees that occupational health & safety is a priority in your company? With the internationally-recognized OHSAS 18001 certification you can prove that your company is sustainably reducing occupational health & safety risks in your company.
Our experts will inspect and certify your company in accordance with OHSAS 18001. The certified occupational health & safety management system includes a complete functional specification document for management. We will support you in identifying and analyzing potential hazards and we will evaluate the risks associated with them. Objectives and programs for improving occupational health & safety are defined on this basis. By determining responsibilities and training your employees, you will minimize security risks and be prepared for potential emergency situations.
The new international standard for occupational health & safety, ISO 45001 was published on 12th March and will supersede OHSAS 18001. Companies are granted a three-year transition period in which ISO 45001 must be implemented. We support you in the transition to the new standard with a gap analysis.

Goals and consequences of ISO 45001
ISO 45001, the new standard for occupational health and safety management, was published on 12th March 2018. It places the continual improvement of occupational health and safety performance at the heart of a company.
Nevertheless, certification according to OHSAS 18001 is still possible. With the official publication of ISO 45001 companies are granted a three-year transition period until March 2021, within this period ISO 45001 replaces OHSAS 18001 and the transition must be completed. We will support you in the transition process and enable you to make a smooth transition. Contact us if you are interested in a gap analysis.
According to the new ISO 45001 standard, corporate management must take the responsibility for ensuring the health and safety of employees even more consistently. Like the revised ISO 9001 standards for quality management and ISO 14001, it thus follows the aim of integrating all relevant aspects in one management system.
