I did not get how the scope of the OHS certification differs from the scope of the OHS management system ....
Scope of certification and scope of Management system are two different things. An organization may decide to implement OHS management system throughout the entire facility but at the same time it has the liberty to exclude part of the facility from the certification scope.
Have a look at the follwoing para from OHSAS 18002:2008 which is self explanatory:
An organization can choose to implement an OH&S management system with respect to the entire organization, or to a subdivision of the organization, provided this is consistent with its definition of its workplace. However, once the workplace is defined, all the work related activities and services of the organization, or subdivision, within that workplace need to be included in the OH&S management system.
Care should be taken in defining and documenting the scope of the OH&S management system, to determine who, what and where, are to be covered. The scope should not be limited so as to exclude an operation or activity that can impact on the OH&S of an organization’s employees and other persons under its control in the workplace.
Note the terms 'who, what and where'
. This was the reason I suggested to include the 'products'
(what) in the scope of certification.
