OHSAS 18001 Certification Process

STEP 1: Preparation

If you are new to the OHSAS 18001 standard you are probably going to need some guidance. We are able to provide bespoke, in-house training and you'll also find some helpful articles on our website containing generic hints and tips. When you're ready, we’ll discuss your certification requirements with you and provide a competitive quotation so you can budget accurately. Your quotation will be based upon factors such as your organisation's activities, how many locations you operate from and how many people you employ.

We also operate a Small Business Service which was designed specifically for owner-managed businesses. To get the ball rolling, simply call our award winning Customer Support Team for free on +65 6733 6064 or email us an enquiry.

STEP 2: Application

Once you decide to proceed, we'll assign a Lead Assessor to you. He or she will be your principal contact throughout the registration process and beyond. They will build up detailed knowledge of your organisation and will be able to answer any questions you might have. Many of our clients start with a Pre-assessment. This optional service is where we review your current circumstances as part of a Gap Analysis and agree an action plan with you.

STEP 3: Pre-Audit Assessment (known as Stage 1)

Your Lead Assessor will visit you to explain the standard and undertake a conformity assessment of your current arrangements for occupational health and safety management. You will then receive a detailed report including all required actions. Together, you will then determine the appropriate timetable for your Audit Assessment.

STEP 4: Audit Assessment (known as Stage 2)

Once you are ready for your formal Audit Assessment, your Lead Assessor will make the required arrangements for you. On completion, you will be informed of the Auditor's recommendation before he or she leaves your premises.

STEP 5: Registration & Certificate

Following the Auditor's recommendation, your registration will be reviewed and if approved your certification will be confirmed. Soon after, your certificate of conformity to the OHSAS 18001 standard will be issued and sent to you.

STEP 6: Continual Assessment

Having achieved certification, you'll want to maintain your registration and your Lead Assessor will remain on hand to undertake the required annual reviews to ensure you continue to meet the requirements of OHSAS 18001.
