Hello everyone..
My name is Sachin

I am working as QHSE Coordinator in Oil field. I experience wonderful information and guidance from many threads. and used many discussion in my work and procedure. i have many procedure by only referring this forum.

But now i am stuck up with OHSAS 18001: 2007 Evaluation of Compliance procedure.

I am so much confused between 4.3.2 Legal and other requirement and
4.5.2 Evaluation of compliance. I am totally blank now.

Can anyone help me what exactly is the Clause 4.5.2 in simple words.
How to make procedure for this clause 4.5.2
Can clause 4.3.2 and clause 4.5.2 be integrated? if yes how?
Can anyone give me any example procedure for this clause 4.5.2.

Kindly Help

Clause 4.3.2 tells us that we must identify all legal 'and other' requirements that impact upon our business and then operate within those requirements.

The problem is that often, companies identify applicable requirements but don't verify that they do comply. Hence clause 4.5.2 which tells us that we must evaluate the degree to which we do, or don't comply with the identified requirements.

You can do this any way you want but the 2 main options I use are to include elements of the legislation register in each internal audit or audit the whole of the register in 1 go.

I remember submitting this post not too long ago - maybe reading it and using the attachments provided will help clear the fog around you.

The first attachment (the register) should help you identify legal and other requirements, and group them into manageable categories to satisfy 4.3.2. The second attachment (the report) will help you adequately record your evaluation of those legal and other requirements to satisfy 4.5.2. In my opinion, any NC's identified in the report should also trigger whatever processes you have in place for correction and, possibly, corrective action. This part of the process is not explicitly required by OHSAS 18K, but I have found it to be good practice nonetheless.

Hi Sachim !

My vision : I imagine in your country you have a electrical safety legal text wth a lot of requirments and for example these two requirements :
- You must isolate your electrical equipments.
- You must label "Caution HV !" if higt voltage equipment.

So you puts this text in the different lines of the first column "requirements" in an Excel file... You gives an "Is this requirement applicable to my compagny ?" title to the second column and an "Is my compagny in complience with this requirement ?" title to the third column, then "comment" to the forth column...

Well done Sachim, you created your tool to satisfy jointly 4.3.2 Legal and other requirement identification and 4.5.2 Evaluation of compliance requirements of the british standard you are using as model for your Occupational Safety & Health Management System !

Requirements identification :
You have electric equipments > you mentions "ye"s in the second column / "isolate your electrical equipments" line.
You have no higt voltage equipment > you mentions "no" in the second column / "Caution HV" label" line.

Compliance :
You audit if your electric equipments are isolated >> You mentions "yes" or "no" or "X%" your compliance in the third column...
And for exemple you mentions "equipements B, D and L need to be isolated before the end of the month".

Bye.

Clarification:
From Wikipedia.
OHSAS 18001, Occupational Health and Safety Management Systems—Requirements (officially BS OHSAS 18001) is an internationally applied British Standard for occupational health and safety management systems. It exists to help all kinds of organizations put in place demonstrably sound occupational health and safety performance. It is a widely recognized and popular occupational health and safety management system.

Hi Stijloor !

Yes BS OHSAS 18001 is applied in many countries but it is a "BS".
In your country for example the OSHMS standard is ANSI/AIHA Z10-2005.
The international one is ILO-OSH.
In some months perhaps a second international will be ISO 45001.

So what ?
