  7. Ad Hoc OH&S Management Systems Standards • 1993 SGS & ISMOL ISO 2000 (now in 3rd, 1998 ed.) • 1997 DNV OHSMS • 1998 BVQI Safety Certification • 1998 (Draft) LRQA SMS 8800 • 1998 (Draft) BSI PAS 088 • 1998 (Draft) AS/NZ 3802 (now a standard) • 1998 (Draft) NSAI SR-320 (now a standard) • 1998 (Draft) AENOR UNE 8900 series (now a standard)

  8. Participants • With OH&S MS documents either published or under development – (including the major Certification Bodies) Project initiated and led by BSI • All National Standards Bodies who had made positive indications at ISO workshop • Organizations

  9. Development of OH&S MS Standards • OHSAS 18001:1999 Occupational Health and Safety Management Systems – Specification was published April 1999 • OHSAS 18002:2000 Occupational Health and Safety Management Systems – Guidelines for the implementation of OHSAS 18001

  10. OHSAS 18001:2007 Revision History • In 2005, the OHSAS Working Group started the process for revising OHSAS 18001:1999 • An initial working draft (WD1) of the revised OHSAS 18001 standard was circulated in January, 2006 for public comment • 500 comments received on WD1 at OHSAS Working Group meeting at Madrid, Spain in October 2006 • Second draft (WD2) was circulated for comment in November, 2006 • OHSAS Working Group met again Shanghai, china in March, 2007. 500+ comments on WD 2 were reviewed • OHSAS 18001:2007 – Released on 1st July 2007 • OHSAS 18002 – Initial Meeting 3rd & 4th July 2007 • OHSAS 18002 – Working Draft 1, November 2007

  11. OHSAS 18001:2007 Revision Objective • Better align it with ISO 9001:2000 and ISO 14001:2004 • Keep the same clauses order and most of the changes of ISO 14001:2004 • Encourage Management Systems integration and possibly increase the interest in OHSAS • More results oriented compared to OHSAS 18001:1999 • Had its elements and definitions refined

  12. Summary of Key Changes • OHSAS 18001 now refers to itself as a standard, not a specification, or document, as in its earlier edition • New definitions have been added, including major ones like “incidents”, “risk”, “risk assessment”, and existing definitions revised (3.9, 3.21, 3.22) • The term “tolerable risk” has been replaced by the term “acceptable risk” (3.1) • The importance of “health” has now been given greater emphasis balanced with “safety” • Focus on occupational safety, not getting distracted with assets, security, etc.

  13. Summary of Key Changes • The definition of the term “hazard” no longer refers to “damage to property or damage to the workplace environment” (3.6) • The term “accident” is now included in the term “incident” (3.9). • The inclusion of behavior, capabilities and other human factors as elements to be considered in the identification of hazards, risk assessment and determination of controls and finally in competence, training and awareness (4.3.1) • A new requirement has been introduced for the consideration of the hierarchy of controls as part of OHS planning (4.3.1) • Change management is now more explicitly addressed (4.3.1 & 4.4.6)

  14. Summary of Key Changes • Clauses 4.3.3 Objectives and 4.3.4 Programmes were merged • New requirements have been introduced for participation and consultation ( • A new clause on the “Evaluation of compliance” has been introduced, aligned with ISO 14001 (4.5.2) • New requirement have been introduced for the investigation of incidents (

  15. Benefits of OHSAS 18001 • Demonstrating your commitment to Occupational Health & Safety can positively improve the efficiency of internal operations and consequently reduce accidents, ganger and downtime. • Employee safety and the quality of the working environment are actively improved because objectives and responsibilities are made clearer and all employees are prepared to effectively deal with any future hazards. • OHSAS 18001 ensures compliance with current legal requirements, reducing the risk of penalties or possible litigation.


  17. Methodology of OHSAS Std. Follow a Plan-Do-Check-Act approach. • Plan - Establish the objectives and processes needed to deliver the results (in line with the OHSMS). • Do - Implement the needed processes of the OHSMS. • Check - Check the processes against the policy, objectives, targets, regulations, and report the results.
