Occupational Health & Safety Certification

OHSAS 18001 and ISO 45001

It is difficult to overestimate the importance of an occupational health and safety system (OHS) at an enterprise. Not only personnel safety and minimization of risks of accidents,industrial injuries and diseases induced by improperly organized workflows depend on the competent creation of such system but also the performance of the entire enterprise.

Until 2018, standard BS OHSAS 18001 developed in the UK and adopted by other countries as a reference document addressing this type of management systems was the main document regulating occupational health and safety at enterprises. However, in 2018, it was replaced by ISO 45001, the first international standard dealing occupational health and safety developed by the International Organization for Standardization (ISO). Today, the national standard addressing occupational health and safety in the Russian Federation is GOST R 54934-2012/OHSAS 18001:2007.
