I've already got my order in for a pdf version as soon as it can be released. I have tons of work to do myself with the re-writing of training courses and putting together a transition course for our folks as well. Iknow good and well that Sid's training folks as well as all the others that supply training have got to do the same.

From what I've been seeing, many of the existing systems already in place will have minimal change necessary, if any at all.

For immediate release
Thursday 12th July 2007


Occupational Health and Safety Management Systems Specification OHSAS 18001:1999 is now OHSAS 18001:2007

The British Standards Institution (BSI) is pleased to announce that the internationally recognized consortium specification for Occupational Health and Safety Management Systems, OHSAS 18001:1999 has been updated to become OHSAS 18001:2007

OHSAS 18001:2007 Occupational health and safety management systems - Requirements specifies requirements for an occupational health and safety (OH&S) management system, to enable an organization to control its OH&S risks and improve its performance.

The standard was first published by the OHSAS Project Group as a specification in 1999. Since then there have been 16,000 certifications to the standard in over 80 countries. Feedback from this broad community of users has been incorporated into the updated standard to strengthen its applicability. The new standard places greater emphasis on “health” rather than just “safety”. It is more logically laid out to assist organizations in the management of their occupational health and safety risks, offering significantly better alignment with the environmental management system standard ISO 14001:2004 and quality management system standard ISO 9000:2000. This makes it easier for organizations to harmonize and have one integrated management system in accordance with PAS 99.

For those organizations that have already achieved certification to OHSAS 18001:1999, or are in the final stages of achieving it, a two year "transition" period ending on July 1st 2009 has been agreed, in order to allow them to make the change to the new standard.

The sister standard OHSAS 18002:2000 Occupational Health and Safety Management Systems – Guidelines for the implementation of OHSAS 18001 is presently under review by the OHSAS Project Group to bring it into alignment with the new standard, but still offers valuable advice on achieving compliance to organizations wishing to implement the new standard.

BSI Management Systems provides professional training, assessment and certification services for OHSAS 18001 and associated country level standards worldwide.

Summary of key changes between OHSAS 18001:2007 and OHSAS 18001:1999

 The importance of "health" has now been given greater emphasis.
 OHSAS 18001 now refers to itself as a standard, not a specification, or document, as in the earlier edition. This reflects the increasing adoption of OHSAS 18001 as the basis for national standards on occupational health and safety management systems.
 The "Plan-Do-Check-Act" model diagram is only given in the Introduction, in its entirety, and not also as sectional diagrams at the start of each major clause.
 Reference publications in Clause 2 have been limited to purely international documents.
 New definitions have been added, and existing definitions revised.
 Significant improvement in alignment with ISO 14001:2004 throughout the standard; and improved compatibility with ISO 9001:2000.
 A new requirement has been introduced for the consideration of the hierarchy of controls as part of OH&S planning
 Management of change is now more explicitly addressed
 A new clause on the "Evaluation of compliance" has been introduced, as per ISO 14001:2004
 New requirements have been introduced for participation and consultation
 New requirements have been introduced for the investigation of incidents
OHSAS 18001:2007 Occupational health and safety management systems is available from your local BSI office or can be ordered directly from the BSI website at www.bsi-global.com/OHSAS18001

Price £50*, Member Price £25

A while back there was some dissent and muckraking about the status of OHSAS 18001 and its being a truly international document or Standard or even a standard at all. The following is extracted in part from OHSAS 18001:2007 to help clarify any mis-conception that may exist at this point.

From the Acknowledgement page...............
OHSAS 18001 has been developed with the assistance of the following cooperating organizations:

As you can clearly see (hopefully) this document was not developed by (1) single organization to suit its purposes, it was a combined effort by many. (Some of which may vist the Cove from time to time)

From the Forward page......
This Occupational Health and Safety Assessment Series (OHSAS)
Standard and the accompanying OHSAS 18002, Guidelines for the
implementation of OHSAS 18001, have been developed in response to
customer demand for a recognizable occupational health and safety
management system standard against which their management systems
can be assessed and certified.



Additionally the word "standard" is used 37 times many of them directed towards OHSAS 18001:2007 itself.

Based upon the evidence presented OHSAS 18001:2007 is an international Occupational Health and Safety Standard.
