OHSAS 18001 has become known as a typical “good citizen” credential.

You will always be prepared for external inspections and audits.
Internal Benefits of an OHSAS 18001 Management SystemTransformance from Detection Mode to Prevention Mode of your Business.
Prevention is both less expense and less work than detection. With the help of an OHSAS 18001 management system, you eliminate or mitigate risks and hazards to protect the health and safety of employees and other people.
Consistency is created throughout the Company.
This is done by building the company around the so-called “best practices”.
Business Performance Improved.
An OHSAS 18001 management system that are well designed and well implemented will lessen workplace injury and illness.
Employees are more Productive.
Implementation of an OHSAS 18001 management system will send a clear message to your employees that you as employer care about them.
Distributing Accountability across the Workforce.
Accountability and responsibility are distributed across the workforce by the OHSAS 18001 management system. Information regarding safety tasks is shared by a number of people. This means that tasks do not collapse, because each person does his small share of the job.
Establishing Disciplined and Controlled Growth.
Some companies regard OHSAS 18001 management system as a way to systematise practices, organise the business, and ensure management accountability as the business expands.
Strengthening Compliance to Regulations and Laws.
If you have an OHSAS 18001 management system in place, you can demonstrate that you are aware of, and comply with, the regulations and laws that pertain to you, be it local or national. You will also have control over records, filings, and schedules.
Ensuring Consistent Training
An OHSAS 18001 management system can be compared to a collection of road maps. Direction is provided from one end of a process to the next. The road map is also used to train new people to the process. While they are learning, they still refer to the road map. Their performance is tested against the road map. As soon as they know the process, the road map is not needed any more. However, when the process changes, the roadmap also shows the subsequent changes and employees are thus retrained to it.
Showing an Improvement in Management Oversight
The measurement and monitoring of the key performance indicators in health and safety are incorporated into an effective OHSAS 18001 management system. Decisions made by management can thus be based upon objective data. However, the required self-auditing function is even more powerful. Internal auditing (early warning system) assists you in identifying health and safety threats. You are thus given the chance to address and resolve these threats before it is detected by others. Management review conducted provides them with data, and subsequently enables them to make decisions based purely on evidence and facts.
Facilitating Continual Improvement throughout the Company
This is a reference to many things, including liability, insurance costs, and employee morale. Human concern for the welfare of others is also included here. It should be understood that nothing is more important in a business than improving its health and safety performance.
