Occupational Health and Safety Management System (OHSMS) - ISO:45001:2018

Morgan Health & Safety Solutions is a specialist construction and fire consultancy.We believe that by  managing risks effectively using best practise, the latest technology including AI, will result in improved efficency, substantial cost savings whilst minimising risks .  Our mission is to help our client’s reduce the potential of harm to the lowest level possible.

Therefore, our mission statement is that we aim to offer our clients a “bespoke management system” intended to meet our client’s stated objectives consistently.  Continuous improvement following the Plan-Do-Check-Act principle is now commonplace around the world and used in most international management systems. By  “doing what we document and documenting what we do”, our output can measured against the agreed objectives and we can demonstrate that we have achieved, or perhaps exceeded, the stated objectives.

If we can show that we have satisfied our client’s objectives in a measurable way, Morgan Health & Safety Solutions will have delivered and satisfied our customers needs. We aim to exceed our customers expectations which is win for both parties.

An occupational health and safety (OH&S) management system can help businesses manage the health and safety risks in the workplace for workers and other people affected by the organisation’s activities. In addition, it can be seamlessly integrated with the inputs and outputs used for the production of goods or services. Once embedded, it is a normal business function and can be constantly reviewed and improved ensuring greater consistency and less risk.

Businesses wishing to implement an OH&S management system for the first time, or generally improve OH&S performance, can use ISO 45001. BS:45002 is a British Standard which provides a framework to help organisations successfully implement an OH&S management system based on ISO 45001, in a way that is proportionate to the organisation’s specific health and safety risks.

For example, organisations with less complex and/or less hazardous operations often have a good idea of their main workplace risks whether there is an existing management system in place or not. ISO 45001 and the guidance in BS 45002 provide a framework for managing OH&S risks in a more structured way and for identifying any gaps that need to be addressed.

ISO 45001, like other ISO management system standards, is based on the Plan – Do – Check – Act (PDCA) cycle and uses risk-based thinking as a method of identifying risks and opportunities in all parts of the cycle to improve performance and minimize negative outcomes. The guidance needs to be followed in a way that reflects the hazards identified and their related OH&S risks, without adding unnecessary levels of complexity or cost.

Similarly, this guidance recommends that Businesses only create or store documented information if it is necessary for the effective establishment, implementation and maintenance of the OH&S management system, or required by law. When considering the supply chain, organisations need to note that smaller and/or less complex organisations can have less extensive documented information and still meet relevant requirements.

NOTE 1: For further guidance, see and the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) guidance, Health and Safety Made Simple (http://www.hse.gov.uk/simple-health-safety/).

NOTE 2: Under UK law, organisations cannot delegate legal responsibility for the day-to-day control of their OH&S risks even if third-party expertise, advice or services are used.
