OHSAS 18001:2007 Standard, published by the British Standards Institution (www.bsigroup.ca) is the international reference for the implementation of an occupational health and safety management system.
Groupe DGE International has an extended experience in implementing environmental management systems in various sectors, such as industrial, manufacturing, distribution and institutional.
Transition to ISO 45001:2018
Expected for many years, the ISO 45001 standard was finally published in March 2018. As it is usually the case for this kind of transition, OHSAS 18001 certified companies must now begin their transition to the new standard. The transition will have to be completed at the latest at the beginning of 2021.
Groupe DGE International can help you identifying the gaps between your current management system and the new requirements. Many tools have been specially developed to help you find custom solutions, well adapted to your organization.
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.
