Occupational health and safety is defined as systematic and scientific research conducted to protect the workplace from accidents or other factors that may be harmful to health for various reasons, and to create a better working environment. All over the world, especially in industrially and technologically developing countries, such as ours, there are some problems related to labor protection and labor safety, and these problems affect the health of workers, as well as the efficiency of their work.
Organizations are increasingly subject to commercial, legal and ethical pressure to reduce and control the risks associated with their work.
Each employee and manager is primarily responsible for the measures to be taken to create a healthier and safer working environment.
OHSAS 18001 is the only international standard that defines the requirements of the occupational health and safety management system.
As part of the management system established in accordance with OHSAS 18001, health and safety risks at the workplace have been identified, and the risk of accidents has been reduced.
Organizations that meet the minimum requirements of the ISO 18001 standard are certified based on the results of the SZUTEST ,, audit. The certificate is valid for 3 years. During this period, an intermediate audit is conducted every year, and at the end of this period, a certificate renewal is checked.
Effectively implemented occupational health and safety management systems help organizations achieve their goals and objectives by introducing a systematic approach to identifying, eliminating or reducing risks arising from potential hazards.
Regardless of the circumstances, the labor protection and labor safety management system provides the following benefits:
Reducing the total cost of accidents
Raising awareness of occupational health and safety
Providing a competitive advantage
Increasing the level of compliance with legislation on labor protection and safety,
Reducing potential health and safety concerns and developing positive communication with stakeholders,
Minimizing potential health and safety risks, and
Increase employee motivation and development of their abilities.
