OHSAS 18001 is an Occupation Health and Safety Assessment Series for health and safety management systems. It is intended to help an organizations to control occupational health and safety risks and it was developed in response to widespread demand for a recognized standard against which to be certified and assessed.
The OHSAS specification is applicable to any organisation that wishes to:
- establish an OHSAS management system to eliminate or minimise risk to employees and other interested parties who may be exposed to health and
safety risks associated with its activities;
- assure itself of its conformance with its stated OHSAS policy;
- demonstrate such conformance to others;
- implement, maintain and continually improve an OHSAS management system;
- make a self-determination and declaration of conformance with this OHSAS specification;
- seek certification/registration of its OHSAS management system by an external organisation.

Essentially, OHSAS helps to minimise risk to employees, improve an existing OH&S management system, demonstrate diligence, gain assurance.
The benefits can be substabtial.
