Survey or Statistics on the use of OHSAS 18001 Worldwide

#51
Hello Pancho !

Effectively part 2 of ILO-OSH gives suggestions for country level. Some countries run in this way throught national standards body (ex : USA, Russia...), some other adopt directly ILO-OSH in their ministry organizations (e.g. Brasil, even I don't know how). But when I spoke of the ILO-OSH in our companies I mentioned part 3 of ILO-OSH.

To answer your request I select these three strengths of differences between ILO-OSH and BS OHSAS 18001:

- A better real participation of employees in various aspects of OSHMS, which does not mean that the employer lost its prerogative of being the sole decision maker. Employee participation provides a kind of "ergonomic" consideration on the work "reality" in the selection and operation of the business, and facilitates the implementation of new provisions.

- A greater consideration of health workers (health in work) and more balanced long-term relation to security issues (instead of having OSHMS working mainly or only security issues). Now finally occupational health is often at least as damaging for the company that occupationnal accidents.

- Risk prevention (assement at first) is not done only down on the existing, but ILO-OSH grows better to act upstream especially during "change" occurring or in the purchasing process of goods or services. And it's a little beet similar regarding legal OSH requirements identification and exploitation.

In summary (in addition to its tripartite origine facilitating its communication with employees) all the ILO-OSH part 3 paragraphs are more explicit : it makes easier to understand and more directly operational to apply even if we are not a OSH specialist.

Thank you for having shared with me (and my wrongly english...).

Thank you for your detailed reply, Henria.

The three items that you mention are listed in Samsung's comparative link, and we have managed to address them in our company's health and safety management system, even if not consciously trying to meet ILO-OSH guidelines.

Thus I'm not convinced that these differences overcome the advantages of complying with a standard that is better known and much more widely adopted. Some of our clients and suppliers are already registered to BS OHSAS. None that I know are registered to ILO-OSH. For this, I think that we made the right decision in going with the OHSAS document.

In any case, good luck with the promotion of ILO-OSH. We need more companies and governments adopting best H&S practices. I think both documents under discussion help fulfill this goal, though it would be nice if they were joined (perhaps under ISO?) instead of competing.

Hello Pancho !

There is no need or interest for operating internal OSH in a company wich adopts such or such OSHMS standard to use exactly the same OSHMS standard used by its external partners. Either way these standards are compatible. But it's not true for technical standards of compatibility between various products for example. I know companies with a "ILO-OSH" management system which are also certified BS (double OSH certification because who can do more can do less). In addition using true international standard or your own national standard may open curiosity and be attractive for stakeholders.

Regarding ISO, there will be no OSH standard (question is passed). But the new ISO 26000 (RS) refers to ISO 9000 and 14000 and various ILO references including ILO ILO-OSH (but no mention of any national standard). It's a fact. Tell about this with your clients and suppliers.

Regards.

BS OHSAS 18001 can be adopted by any organization wishing to implement a formal procedure to reduce the risks associated with health and safety in the working environment for employees, customers and the general public.

Hello RichmondVacom !

You said a certain british OSHMS standard "can be adopted by any organization wishing to implement a formal procedure to reduce the risks associated with health and safety in the working environment for employees, (customers and the general public *)"... Yes it's true !

But I say any national OSHMS standard or the international one can be adopted by any organization wishing to implement a formal procedure to reduce the risks associated with health and safety in the working environment for employees...". My proposal is true too, and more open or flexible than yours...

* regarding industrial activities management to be exact we must considere that safety and health of the customers or general public is rather the scope of QMS or EMS than the scope of OSHMS... even OSHMS contributes. You agree ? I think it's the kind of way of ISO 9001 combining these 3 domains QSE of our compagny management (and then quoting the 3 international models, ISO 9001, ILO-OSH and ISO 14001).

Bye.
