Ohsas 18001 l.jpg

OHSAS 18001

  • OHSAS 18001(Occupational Health and Safety Assessment Series)

    • published in April 1999

    • specifies requirements of a OH&S MS

    • designed to be applicable to

      • all types and sizes of companies

      • diverse geographical, cultural and social conditions.

Health.ppt


Ohsas 180017 l.jpg

OHSAS 18001

  • Certification against OHSASis aimed at the way a company has

    • knowledge of ...

    • and control over ...

      all relevant risks resulting fromnormal operations and abnormal situations.

Health.ppt


Ohsas 180018 l.jpg

OHSAS 18001

  • Growing demand for a management system based standard for OH&S

  • stand alone management system or integrated with either their ISO 14001 or ISO 9001 management system.

  • expect an accreditation scheme will emerge within the next 2 years

Health.ppt


Ohsas 180019 l.jpg

OHSAS 18001

  • OHSAS 18001 structure - six sections:

    • General Requirements

    • OH&S Policy

    • Planning

    • Implementation and Operation

    • Checking and Corrective Action

    • Management Review

Health.ppt


Ohsas 1800110 l.jpg

OHSAS 18001

OHSAS (Occupational Health and Safety Assessment Series) 18001

  • OHSAS 18001: Specifications for OH&S Management Systems

  • OHSAS 18002: Guidance for OH&S Management Systems

  • OHSAS 18003: Criteria for auditors of OH&S Management Systems

Health.ppt


Ohsas 1800111 l.jpg

OHSAS 18001

  • Traditional occupational health and safety management reacted to work related incidents.

  • OHSAS 18001 plans for the control of work related risks.

Health.ppt

OHSAS 18001

  • H&S costs facing organizations include but are not limited to:

    • investigation time,

    • wages paid for lost time,

    • training replacements,

    • extra supervisory and clerical time,

    • decreased output of worker upon return

    • the loss of business and goodwill

Health.ppt

OHSAS 18001

Benefits of Registration:

  • potential reduction in the number of accidents

  • potential reduction in downtime and associated costs

  • demonstration of legal and regulatory compliance

  • demonstration of commitment to stakeholders

  • demonstration of innovative, forward thinking approach

  • increased access to new customers and business

  • better management of risks, now and in the future

  • potential reduced public liability insurance costs

    • chemicals or mixtures of substances

    • substances with occupational exposure limits

    • biological agents

    • dusts, in certain concentrations

    • any other substances which have similar hazards to health but for technical reasons may not be specifically covered by CHIP ...

Health.ppt


Slide20 l.jpg

CHIP

Chemicals (Hazard Information and Packaging for Supply) Regulations 1994.

  • to ensure that people supplied with chemicals receive the information they need to protect themselves, others and the environment.

  • obliges suppliers to identify the hazards and pass on this information with advice on safe use. This is usually done by means of package labels and safety data sheets.

Coshh22 l.jpg

COSHH

  • the presence (or not) of a warning label will indicate whether COSHH is relevant

  • COSHH does not cover:

    • asbestos and lead

    • radioactive substances per se

    • explosive or flammable substances

    • chemicals at high temperature / pressure.

      Other laws apply in these cases

Health.ppt


7 steps to coshh l.jpg

7 steps to COSHH

  • Step 1Work out what hazardous substances are used in your work place and find out the risks from using these substances to people's health.

  • Step 2Decide what precautions are neededbefore starting work with hazardous substances.

Health.ppt


7 steps to coshh24 l.jpg

7 steps to COSHH

  • Step 3Prevent people being exposed to hazardous substances, but where this is not reasonably practicable, control the exposure.

  • Step 4Make sure control measures are used and maintained properly and that safety procedures are followed.

Health.ppt


7 steps to coshh25 l.jpg

7 steps to COSHH

  • Step 5If required, monitor exposure of employees to hazardous substances.

  • Step 6Carry out health surveillance where your assessment has shown that this is necessary or COSHH makes specific requirements.

  • Step 7Make sure employees are properly informed, trained and supervised.

Health.ppt


Coshh26 l.jpg

COSHH

  • Consider:

    • changing the process or activity

      • eg mixing in a closed vessel to minimise vapour

    • replacing it with a safer alternative

      • is the hazardous substance essential

    • using it in a safer form

      • eg pellets are less dusty than powder.

  • and then:

    • use appropriatePersonal Protective Equipment (PPE)
