The International Organization for Standardization (www.iso.org) published a standard in 2018 to provide a framework for occupational health and safety management. This standard has legitimately replaced the most widely used standard in the industry at that time, OHSAS 18001:2007, published by the British Standards Institution (www.bsigroup.com)
Groupe DGE International has put its vast experience in the implementation of OHS management systems in the industrial, manufacturing, distribution and institutional sectors to good use in supporting organizations in the transition to certification or in achieving their initial ISO 45001 certification.
The coaching approach
In our coaching approach, a Groupe DGE International’s specialist prepares training modules to assist your project manager during the development of the company’s OHSAS 18001 management system.
The project manager then benefits from our experience, while several concrete examples of management tools are introduced to him/her. The objective is to understand the requirements of the standard and to meet them, while finding a custom application for the company.
The “turn-key” approach
For companies facing a lack of resources or preferring to refer to experts in the field, Groupe DGE International provides the full implementation of an OHS management system.
In this approach, your internal project manager describes the company’s needs and explains to Groupe DGE International what the company wishes to see in its management system. We then draft the documentation and ask you to validate it. Finally, we ensure the system implementation, provide training for your staff, and then perform internal audits, in order to adequately prepare your company for the certification audit.
