Health and safety management system

Companies are coming under increasing commercial, regulatory and ethical pressures to mitigate and control hazards and risks from their operations. The majority of organisations now ensure they comply with the appropriate legislation, but many are now realising the benefits a formalised approach that a health and safety management system can bring. 

Selecting LRQA means you’ll be working with a company that is synonymous with the business of safety. Our technical specialists were instrumental in the development of OHSAS 18001 and as part of the Lloyd’s Register Group Ltd, which has been involved in the business of safety since 1760, we know what we’re talking about.

OHSAS 18001

OHSAS 18001 has been developed in response to industry demand for a recognisable health and safety management system standard which can be externally assessed and certified.


If you hold OHSAS 18001 certification with LRQA, then as a Registered Member of SSIP (Safety Schemes in Procurement Competence Forum), we can also certificate you against SSIP without additional audits.

ISO 45001 certification

ISO 45001 is the new international standard for occupational health and safety (OH&S) management and will replace the existing OHSAS 18001 standard.
