The purpose of OHSAS 18001 is to assist organizations in managing and controlling their health and safety risks and improving their OH&S performance. Many organizations have chosen to implement OHSAS 18001 and obtain registration because it provides evidence that the organization has an OHSMS in place. An organization with an effective health and safety system will typically have safer and healthier workplaces, comply with regulations and meet customer expectations better than an organization that does not have an effective OHSMS.
