Does anyone have any info or statistics on the number of companies that have developed an OHSAS 18001 conforming system for managing their Occupational Health and Safety issues? A breakdown for N. America/Europe/Asia would also be useful, if someone also has that info.

Thanks:thanx:

The 2,000 number is probably a wild guess. Nobody knows for sure. Since certification to OHSAS 18001 is a non-accredited activity, the certification bodies offering certification to OHSAS are not even required to keep a register/directory of such certificates.

Me too would like to know the number and breakdown.
Good luck!

Now we have the data. The attachment to this post gives factual numbers at the end of 2007. Approximately 31,000 certificates to OHSAS 18001 (or equivalent) had been issued 2[sup]1[/sup]/[sub]2[/sub] years ago.
