I have a take home project for our Risk Management class that is focusing on developing a table that contains OHSAS 18001 requirements going down the left hand side of the table and procedures needed to determine if you are meeting those OHSAS requirements going horizontally. I am very confused as to what "procedures" are exactly to meet OHSAS requirements. We should then be able to use this table to check off if there is a procedure in place to meet the OHSAS requirement/s. I've searched this site far and wide and have yet to find an example of a procedure/s to meet OHSAS requirements. If I could get an example form or some headway on this topic it would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks

Welcome to the Cove. :D

Go up to the top of the screen and click on Post Attachments List, which will send you to a page where you can search for forms and documents. Try searching for 18001 checklist.

Do you have a copy of OHSAS 18001? If not, you will need to get one. Then, read through each clause and you will see that many of them say something like (clause 4.3.1) - "The organisation shall establish, implement and maintain a procedure(s) for the ongoing hazard identification ..."

So there you go, that is 1 example. I know it sounds tedious but I suspect the purpose of the project is (at least partially) to get you to read the standard.

Thanks for your help so far. Yes I do have a copy of OHSAS and have found that very informative. I m asking my teacher to gain clarification on what he means by a "procedure" to determine or check if OHSAS requirements are being met. One classmate tried using the approach of using OHSAS requirements as procedures by rewording them and that failed to meet his expectations. Looks like is will be an interesting learning process.

ISO 9000 2006 defines a procedure as "a specified way to carry out an activity or a process."

There is no reason why this definition need not also apply to safety.

the term procedure is also defined in the OHSAS 18001:2007 document:
3.19 procedure
specified way to carry out an activity or a process
NOTE Procedures can be documented or not.
[ISO 9000:2005, 3.4.5]

Teacher? Well instruct your teacher to inform you about:

OHSAS 18002:2008 -
Occupational health
and safety management
systems — Guidelines for
the implementation of
OHSAS 18001:2007


and

BS 18004:2008
Guide to achieving
effective occupational health
and safety performance


Both of these documents will contain exactly what you want

And as Sidney briefly indicated ask your teacher about the reasoning for Section 3 of OHSAS 18001:2007
