Frequently Asked Question

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.
