OHSAS 18001 Step by Step: A Practical Guide

An essential guide to OHSAS 18001

We say ‘take care’ as we wave our loved ones goodbye in the morning, but how often is this message taken into the workplace?

In this easy-to-understand and timely pocket guide, Naeem Sadiq, examines the Understanda as it gears up to meet OHSAS 18001 standards of occupational health and safety.

Real-world scenarios

Using a wide variety of fictional ‘real world’ scenarios, Sadiq demonstrates the hazards that might be present in a workplace, how to assess risk, how to manage OHSAS 18001 implementation and how to communicate its implementation through all levels of management.

Sadiq takes the complex, and often impenetrable, concepts that surround health and safety and presents them with absolute precision and clarity.
