18001 Health and Safety Management Systems: A Complete Guide to OHSAS and VPP Implementation
18001 Health and Safety Management Systems: A Complete Guide to OHSAS and VPP Implementation is designed to help organizations develop an Occupational Health and Safety Management System (OH&S-MS) that conforms to OHSAS 18001 requirements and/or OSHA VPP.

Although this guide focuses on OHSAS 18001 requirements and VPP, the systems approach also applies to other health and safety standards, like ANSI/AIHA Z10-2012 and CSA Z1000-06.  By providing this proven approach along with customizable OHSAS 18001 audit checklists, this guide is recognized as a valuable resource for organizations that are working towards an OHSAS 18001 certification.  Using the included OHSAS 18001 gap analysis tool, companies can also effectively improve their current health and safety management systems.

Corporate EHS directors, audit managers, quality managers across all manufacturing sectors, as well as service industries and especially multinational organizations use this guide.
