THE BS8800 OHS STANDARD

BS8800 is essentially a guide to occupational health and safety management systems. It was last published in July 2004 (ISBN 0580439879), and is intended to assist in developing a framework for managing OHS.

It explains how the various elements in developing a OH&S management system can be tackled and integrated into day-to-day management arrangements, and how the system can be maintained as OH&S evolves, responding to internal and external influences.

A greater focus on business drivers is intended to help OH&S managers in gaining senior management commitment.

It also offers guidance and help on issues such as promoting an effective safety management system, risk assessment/control, and hazardous event investigation, and of course reflects the two OHSAS standards.
