Notes de l'éditeur

  1. Accepted throughout world: OSHAS18001 is not an ISO Standard. ISO45001 is an internationally agreed Standard for H&S. You will be recognised as being an independently audited company, meeting agreed requirements and also be able to integrate it with other Standards through the adoption of the high level structure Annex SL. Stakeholder involvement: demonstrating to everyone involved in your processes is not only a good PR exercise but also demonstrates profit is not the only reason you are in business. Stress level measurement: Modern living is more stressful and it is beginning to be recognised that mental health is important and not stigmatised. Measuring and putting programmes in place to recognise and counsel staff and where required refer them to professional help. More uptime and motivated employees raises production levels which is something here in the UK we need to improve compared with our European competitors. Community reputation: Being seen as a good corporate citizen is becoming increasingly more important, not just with H&S, but also the environment and other social activities.
  2. Following publication of the Draft International Standard (DIS) in February 2016, The International Committee met in Toronto from 6-10 June 2016 to discuss over 3,000 comments which had been submitted during the ballot. It was agreed at the closing session to move to publication  of a 2nd DIS, which is expected in December 2016 or January 2017. The final standard is now expected in the second half of 2017.
  3. The discussions during the committee meeting centred around minor changes needed to some key ‘Terms and Definitions’ such as the definitions relating to  ‘worker’, ‘participation’ and the definition of hazard. Minor changes were also proposed relating to areas such as ‘Participation and consultation’, ‘awareness’ and ‘the hierarchy of controls’. The next International Committee meeting is scheduled for October 2016 where the remainder of the comments submitted will be discussed and the content of the 2nd DIS finalised. Recognizing how vital OH&S is to keeping employees safe and healthy around the world, it is advisable that you and all interested parties keep up-to-date regarding the status of this process.
  4. You cannot just rely on your contractors to assess the OH&S risks, ultimately you as the prime contactor are responsible. Even if the contractor has a OH&S system you must do some checking yourself to ensure their system is robust, especially if it is not accredited. As an example “how often do they review and update their risk assessments in light of experience gained” (near misses are they always being recorded)
  5. Tools: As was indicated in the previous slide it is your responsibility to ensure that any contracts you take on which employ the use of subcontracted services or the hire of equipment are covered as far as the exposure to OH&S risks is concerned It is not enough just to send a questionnaire out and solely depend on the answers given, especially if they are a small company without the resources to document procedures and conduct risk assessments. You must do due diligence, it is not just about carry out an initial assessment, what are the attitudes and knowledge when sub-contracted staff come on site. Emergency preparedness and response: Are you going to include the subcontractors in your plan or is it an independent plan. How is the plan tested walk through, simulation etc. How often is it tested, how often is it updated e.g when a near miss occurs or new legislation is released
  6. As with all ISO Standards which are updated you have 3 years to make the transition from OSHAS18001 to ISO45001 I believe OSHAS18001 will be dropped relatively quickly with people preferring to adopt an international Standard instead
  7. Existing system gap analysis: You need to align you’re your current procedures with the new standard using the cross reference matrix as a guide. This type of transition should not take more than 3 months. Scratch system: You will already have a lot of the systems in place as you have mandatory legal requirements and industry codes-of-practice to follow. This should not take any more than 9 months to complete. Writing/updating procedures: Use the pertinent clause and paragraph to address and new requirements that are required for Bedding in: Give training to each line manager using practical examples e.g a completed accident form or a flow-line with checks ansd balances Internal audits: Focus on the new requirements specifically, where the procedure is weak involved the users, solicit their views and amend procedure accordingly. Where training is required, conduct it involving the line manager, ensuring it is followed up by some form of evaluation in the workplace say two weeks later to test the understanding
