OHSAS 18001 is not an ISO standard yet. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ Now it is! March 2018

Hi !

I an very surprise to read here that BS OHSAS 18001 is an ISO standard. It is not ! Neither ANSIZ10 nor CSA Z1000 or AS/NZ 4801... These different OHSMS standards are national standards. The international one is ILO-OSH 2001 (free text in several language).

(seach "ILO OSH Management Systems" in internet)

Cordially.

Welcome to The Cove Forums! :bigwave: :bigwave:

Can you refer us to the thread and post where that claim was made?
I do not believe that I read this anywhere...:nope:

Here is a thread AIAG - OHSAS 18001 Certification May Not Be Money Well Spent in which we had some conversations.

Please let us know. :agree1:

Never once in the 10 years that I have been working in the Cove have I seen where it has been stated that OHSAS 18001 is an ISO standard and I am one of the ones that has clearly stated that it is not!

You're referencing the ILO-OHS document is nice, but very much behind the power curve we have established here in this site. Additionally the ILO document doesn't require diddly....it is a guidance document which stresses what "should" be done as opposed to what "shall" (meaning must, or has to) be done, and consequently is a very weak document.

Welcome to The Cove. Indeed, sometimes, people have erroneously referred to the document as ISO 18001. For the most part, people have been corrected about it. Those who are "in the know" have always referred to the document, according to it's proper designation.
