We’ve already got CHAS and Safe Contractor – why would we need BS OHSAS 18001 Certification?
BS OHSAS 18001 underpins a company’s entire health and safety management system. It gives the company the framework to manage the health and safety system as a whole, including on and off site working. Companies who run an 18001 system in conjunction with either CHAS or Safe Contractor find it much easier to manage the overall health and safety of its employees, visitors and customers. It allows the company to tie together every aspect of the its activities that may have a health and safety risk attached.
We at ISO Quality Services Ltd want your company to get the greatest return from you ISO/BS standard, this is why we offer on-going telephone and email support which is included in your on-going auditing fees. Please make the most of the service we provide and call or email us on 01905 670303 / email@example.com
We want to hear from you in between audits! No question or query is too small!
