Occupational health and safety management system

Introduction In 2008-09, the Welsh Water health and safety management system was substantially revised to meet the requirements of the revised OHSAS 18001:2007 standard. Principal amongst the changes were a much greater emphasis on ‘health’ rather than just ‘safety’, and signicantly improved alignment to ISO 14001:2004. OHSAS 18001 is based on establishing and maintaining a formal occupational health and safety management system to ensure a structured, systematic approach to occupational health, safety and risk.

Welsh Water obtained the previous standard (OHSAS 18001:1999) in 2007-08. Moving to the new standard meant a signicant increase in scope for the areas covered by the new standard, particularly in relation to the management of Welsh Water’s service partners and the management of risk associated with ill health and the promotion of wellbeing. (See appendix 3 for a denition of the OHSAS 18001 process).

OHSAS 18001:2007 In February 2009, Welsh Water successfully satised the requirements of its external awarding and accreditation body and was awarded the new OHSAS 18001:2007 international health and safety management systems standard, which underpins the accredited management framework for occupational health and safety used within the business.
