Implementing an occupational health and safety management system (OHSMS) helps organizations to strategically reduce workplace accidents, injuries and illnesses and continually improve their performance. In so doing, this will help your organization reduce risks and costs, strengthen your competitive advantage, and create a positive workplace culture in which employees see that their needs are taken into account.
WSPS management systems experts will guide you in the development, implementation and/or evaluation of an OHSMS to meet the requirements outlined by a specific standard.
When your organization is seeking to explore whether an OHSMS is feasible, the starting point is often to conduct a gap analysis. This enables you to compare your existing OHS program to the requirements of an OHS management system standard. When you have an understanding of the OHSMS standard you wish to implement (e.g., ISO 45001, OHSAS 18001, COR), that standard will be used as the basis for the gap analysis. WSPS will provide you with a report that outlines where your existing OHS program or system aligns to the requirements of an OHS management systems standard and where significant gaps may exist.
When your organization is seeking to implement an OHSMS based upon the requirements of a standard, WSPS consultants will work with you to ensure you are conforming to the framework of the applicable OHSMS standard chosen.
When your organization is seeking assistance with an internal audit of your OHSMS, WSPS consultants will provide an internal audit to the OHSMS standard you have chosen. This provides you with an independent and unbiased review.
