OHSAS 18001 Documentation
Preparing all the required OHSAS 18001 documents can be an intimidating feat. The OHSAS 18001 standard is very open to interpretation when it comes to meeting its documentation requirements. Therefore, organizations seeking to implement the OHSAS 18001 standard can find themselves struggling early on in their ISO journey. The truth of the matter is, since no two companies are the same, ISO standards are intentionally left vague so that each organization prepares documents, forms, policies, and procedures that best fit their unique businesses.

OHSAS 18001 Certification Body Management Services
As indicated by its name, H.A. Consultancies is an ISO consultancy firm and thus cannot provide OHSAS 18001 certification services to its clients as that is deemed to be a conflict of interest. H.A. can however provide consultation services to its clients as to which certification body to choose and can also manage the interaction with the certification body on behalf of the client. Certification bodies follow rigid procedures which entail filling out various detailed forms for the simplest of requests such as obtaining a quotation for their services or booking an audit. Building on the years of experience in the field, H.A. Consultancies was able to develop a strong network with numerous certification bodies both locally and abroad. This enables H.A. to advise its clients on which certification body to opt for based on their industry sector, their client’s locations, and the standard they are seeking to get certified on. This saves our clients the hassle of running after certification bodies and ensures them that they will get a certificate that is accredited and internationally recognized, not just a piece of paper.
H.A. also manages interactions with certification bodies on behalf of its clients in order to limit the number of visits that are required for the audits to the minimum. This not only reduces costs but also ensures that clients would not have to endure an ISO certification audit unless they are certain to pass.
