Demonstrate your commitment to occupational health and safety with the SGS portfolio of training, auditing and certification solutions relating to the OHSAS 18001 safety management standard.

Following the publication of ISO 45001:2018 in March 2018, organisations have three years to migrate from OHSAS 18001 to the new standard. During this time, OHSAS 18001 certifications will remain valid until migration. At the end of this period, OHSAS 18001 certification will no longer be available.

OHSAS 18001 is the internationally recognised assessment specification for the Occupational Health and Safety Management Standard. Developed by leading industry and international standards and certification bodies, OHSAS 18001 provides a framework that allows you to consistently identify and control your health and safety risks, reduce the potential for accidents, aid legislative compliance and improve your overall performance.

We provide a portfolio of training, auditing and certification solutions related to the OHSAS 18001 standard, helping you to efficiently manage health and safety within your organisation. Our solutions enable you to demonstrate your commitment to occupational health and safety and meeting regulatory requirements. Our global network of experienced specialists will ensure that your systems are in line with the most up-to-date practices.

With the recent release of the ISO 45001:2018 standard, all migrations from OHSAS 18001 must be completed before March 12, 2021, including closures of any non-conformances and certification decisions. OHSAS certificates are not valid beyond this date. Therefore, all audits conducted after March 12, 2020 should be conducted against ISO 45001, either as migration, initial or recertification audits.

Let us help you ensure business continuity by putting in place efficient occupational health and safety management systems. Call our experienced team today for more information about OHSAS 18001 and how to easily migrate to ISO 45001.
