SI OHSAS 18001 - For Occupational Health and Safety (OHSAS) Management Systems


All organizations are required to care for the health and safety of its workers. Certification by The Standards Institution of Israel for Occupational Health and Safety, according to requirements of SI OHSAS 18001 demonstrates that the organization has taken the needed measures to implement its responsibilities to the workers, their health and safety.

Certification, in accordance with requirements of Standard SI OHSAS 18001, is suitable for all organizations and refers to subcontractors and visitors to organization’s sites.

Creating an Occupational Health and Safety system will enable the organization to:

  • Identify, evaluate and control risks to the workers, while acting to minimize them.
  • Consistently and systematically define handling and prevention processes.
  • Define safety and health goals and proactive planning to achieve them.
  • Compliance with legal requirements and relevant standards.
  • Continually improve leading to reduction in costs from handling accidents and occupational illness.
  • Drive improvement processes (even beyond basic compliance to the requirements).
  • Transition to effective and efficient work processes.
  • Assure customers and stakeholders that the organization considers caring for the health and safety of its workers to be of high priority.

Auditors from The Standards Institution of Israel will assist in verifying that the organization’s health and safety management meets the standard’s requirements.

The path to certification

Certification is done after implementation of an intra-organizational process, in which the organization’s occupational health and safety system, per the standard requirements, is successfully implemented. In order to start the process, it is recommended to purchase the standard at The Standards Institution information center, to learn the requirements and to participate in appropriate training. Additionally, consultants that specialize in occupational health and safety can be used, and The Standards Institution of Israel can conduct a preliminary audit to identify gaps.
The process should be seen as an opportunity for improvement by a team from the organization that will receive support and involvement of management. At the end of the process, auditors of The Standards Institution of Israel, that are independent, will perform the certifying audit that confirms that the organization’s occupational health and safety management system is appropriate.
